5. I am no longer allowed within 10 yards of my delicate baby with nail clippers in my hand. Why? Because both times I’ve attempted to trim the claws that she insists on gouging her face with, I’ve nicked her fingers. This clipping has resulting in bleeding (minor), screaming (her – quickly comforted by momma), and crying and curling into a fetal position (not the child – but momma). Instead of clippers, I have been using an emery board to file down her talons.
