I am a first time mommy marrying a 2nd time daddy. He is a great dad so I tend to follow his advice. I am not so sure about this advice though and here is why...
I was preparing to file my newborns fingernails down gently. Daddy came into the nursery and told me that there is no need to file and he picked up a baby nail clippers and on the first try he took a chunk of her finger off. Yep my little baby screamed and bled all over. It was so heart breaking and I could my fiance just feel horrible so I consoled him while I consoled my daughter.
I have since filed her nails but he still insists that I cut them. Does it really matter? We are not fighting, I just don't see the point in cutting her nails and potentially harming her.
Ugh.... share your experiences please!
