soon2be3 (1180 days ago) My only concern for painting nails is the paint that you use. A lot of paints contain really harmful chemicals...phthalates, formeldahyde and toluene - ingredients that have all been scientifically linked to health-related conditions in humans. I know that Aveda and OPI have polishes out there that don`t contain those chemicals. You might try those brands.
Lookalike (1180.9 days ago) Ha! That`s funny! I guess if the kid isn`t sucking the paint off the nails, then it should be fine. I think people take conservativism too far in some cases. I`m conservative myself in that I go to church a lot, don`t believe in sex before marriage, and am submissive to my husband, but I think things like letting little girls have pierced ears and painted nails is fine. What really irks me, though, is when little girls (or their mommies) don`t keep up with it and let the painted nails get severely chipped and ugly. If you`re going to do it, do it right!

mamag07 (1181 days ago) I started painting my daughters when she was about 6 months old. I thought as long as the toes don`t go in the mouth then it was fine. That is why I did toes and not hands.
