My LO is 5 months, so I really should have got this sorted by now. However, every time I think I've done a thorough job of cutting or filing her nails (I've even attempted biting them!!) she wakes up the following morning having managed to gouge a chunk out of her forehead. I seem to do them every other day. She is permenantly covered in scratches and it's really starting to get to me. It sounds ridiculous, but she always looks like she's been in the wars and I feel so responsible! Scratch mits are a no no as she sucks her thumb at night and I wouldn't want that to stop as it normally means she can send herself back to sleep. However, in her attempts to find her thumb in the night she scratches her face to bits. How does everyone else manage it? I'm hoping against hope that there's some magic tool out there that I haven't yet heard of!
