It has been a little over a week since I brought my precious bundle of joy home. In this time I have learned many things, some I hope to share with you. First and foremost, babies LOVE to sleep during the day and have parties at night. I know this will pass, and she will eventually get on a schedule. However, for the time being it is hard. I am not complaining (too much) she is healthy and happy……even at 4:30 in the morning.
As previously mentioned there are so many things I can’t wait to write about, it is finding the time now to do so. I must bring up this and hope some of you other mothers out there can help me. To Bite or To Clip…..finger nails????? My poor child doesn’t even know she has hands yet because they are confined to what I like to call “oven mitts”. If one of her outfits does not have hand covers, I immediately put on her oven mitts to prevent her from scratching herself. There is only one remedy to this situation, cut her nails. She is so young and her hands are so small I am scared to clip them out of fear I may hurt her. My friend Sophia told me to bite them off when she was sleeping….. REALLY?!?!? Bite them off? Isn’t that a bit prehistoric? I mean if we have Pedi Paws for dogs shouldn’t we have some better piece of equipment for cutting a baby’s finger nails? I guess not so I am left with the smallest nail clippers to do the job!
So what do you other Mom’s say? Clip or Bite?
Please be patient I will have more post coming……..as soon as I get some much needed sleep!
