Photo: Someone Gave A Baby A Manicure & Acrylic Nails
There are a lot of baby firsts.
Baby's first steps.
Baby's first words.
There are lots of cute baby firsts.
I start to cringe when we enter what I consider foreign territory. I will also state for the record I don't have a child so I might be speaking out of turn.
When I see babies (and not young children but BABIES) with earrings I'm like "WHY" and "oh my gosh that had to of hurt them".
Amazingly enough, this is a pretty common thing and they actually do it in the hospital most of the time.
In the United States, it's not the usual practice to pierce a newborn's ears in the hospital. If you can't have the piercing done while you're there, your baby's doctor may be able to do it after you've gone home (in some areas, many pediatricians are equipped to pierce babies' ears) – or recommend another reputable healthcare professional to do the job.

So me freaking out over the piercing of a baby's ears is probably not that big of a deal.
However, can someone please explain THIS TO ME?
Please tell me that's photoshopped.
If not, then I have A LOT of questions.
Someone got a baby a manicure?
They then, in their infinite wisdom, got the baby acrylic nails ala Cardi B?
Mind you Cardi B DID NOT DO THIS but I'm just drawing a comparison. You see how long those talons are?
Don't we put socks on baby's hands because they have a tendency to scratch their faces and such?
Don't babies have a tendency to suck their thumbs?
Isn't this just a little bit over the top?
Usually the question when it comes to moms, newborns, and acrylic nails is "can you take care of a baby with your nails on or should you remove them"?
No, you don’t need to remove your beloved talons before your baby is born. Whether it’s acrylic nails, hard gel, or glued nails, you can keep your fake nails while caring for your new baby. All you need to do is make sure your nails are always clean. (loquaciouslucy)
But the question I have for you is "who puts these nails on a newborn" and "would you do it"?
Hit us up on app chat and let us know what you think.
And for the record, Momma Cardi B...
Down with the earrings for baby Kulture but the nails...not so much.
