Question nail trimming and weighing ?

What do I use to trim nails, and what way works best for you guys?

How do I weigh my hedgehog, do I just use like a food scale?

Me and my gfs only had him for close to 3 weeks now, so I'm not sure if its a good idea to start doing any of this yet?

Any help is appreciated

( I didn't think it made sense to make 2 threads, so I hope this is ok )

Nail trimming always works best in the bath; the water softens the nail and makes it much easier to cut.

Weighing can be done eith on a food scale of a regular scale that you use ( just subtract the of you by the weight of you holding the hedgie)
