I am hoping someone will have a suggestion about how to safely maintain finger & toe nails.
I had been using a nail file right after birth but that takes forever & only works if the baby is sleeping. Then I graduated to nail clippers that came in the baby health kit & ended up clipping his finger too, to my complete horror!!! Now I'm just scared to touch them, but I have to or else he's going to carve his beautiful face to smitherenes.
I've heard bite them off, but I'm scared to bite him & about rounded scissors & again even more afraid of cutting him again- he's very squirmy & after my nail clipper incident, I don't trust myself. Help!
