Any good suggestions on how to clip/file baby's fingernails and toenails? We try, but he gets fussy and moves his hands all around, so it's hard to do, but he keeps scratching his face and I just feel so bad when he does that.

I have a 2 month old and I was having that same problem but one day while he was asleep I started massaging his hands and he didn't wake up so I decided to try clipping his nails then and it worked great. So now when I notice them getting long I just wait for him to take a nap to clip them again. I hope this helps! :)

I can understand completely, I just had a baby (September 15th) and since my first born is almost 3 (January 14th), I actually forgot how sharp newborn nails are and how fast they grow. One tip I can offer you is to the nail clipping when your little one is asleep; (don't do it as soon he/she falls asleep, hive it a couple minutes). Hopefully while your little one is sleeping it will make the task a lot easier.
Good Luck :)
