The birth of a child completely upends the life of new parents, but we know how beautiful and unique this event is. Of course, nothing is easy once the family starts to grow and keeping everything under control isn't easy. There are many choices and decisions to make and this can be difficult. There is always the fear of making a mistake, of course. Fortunately, there are often loved ones or friends and acquaintances around who can give one good advice.
In the story we are about to tell you about here, a mother made a decision regarding her newborn baby that many have disapproved of. Read on to find out more:

This story appeared on Reddit, where a woman with the username @renaissance_witch posted a photo that literally left users speechless. The image showed the little hand of a two-month-old baby sporting a perfect, adult manicure. Yes, you read that right!
The mother proudly showed off the manicure her child had got, perhaps confident that others admire the job. Well, that didn't happen. In fact, many considered this manicure to pose a risk to the child. Why? Let's find out together:
One user wrote: "My wife and I just had a baby.I can't count the number of times I've seen my son scratch and hurt his face with his nails and burst into tears from the pain. Seeing this photo I have to wonder if this woman is breastfeeding? I regularly hear my wife yelp in pain from the scratches our son gives her every day with his hands when he feeds. Doesn't this happen to her too?"
Someone else posted: "I don't understand how this is possible. I have to cut my son's nails at least once a week, otherwise he scratches himself." Most comments followed this theme of the danger of self-hurt.
Allowing an infant to have long nails and undergo an adult manicure does pose risks. Rubbing her eyes, touching her face or other parts of her body, the little girl could get scratched and the scratches could get infected - so, why take the risk?
Perhaps this woman took this photo as a joke and immediately afterwards, she cut the false nails off - but how can we be sure of this?
What do you think of this story: is the child at risk with nails like this?
