Hi There

My son is 8 mnths old and his big toes toenails seems to growing up. Is this normal? Is there a concern for this? What could be the cause of this?

Paediatrician

It is difficult to be sure what is happening to your baby's toenails without being able to examine him. Sometimes the nails turn up like this in babies who are anaemic. It would be best to ask your paediatrician to see your baby.

Just cut them, why wait for them to grow that big. I think there is nothing wrong.
