Tearing your baby limb from limb

When you trim your baby's nails do they scream like you're torturing them? Mine hates it! I think it's because he doesn't want his hands restrained. It kind of makes me chuckle not gonna lie.

What things do your babies scream about?

  • thanks to my vision I've never had to do it. I would be a nervous wreck, I hate things like that. I am the kind of Mom who cries harder than the baby during shots.

  • My son used to scream when he got his hair cut. He always said that it hurt! My daughter just loved to scream bloody murder!! I'm still not sure why and she is now 16. I kinda blame her red hair!

  • My youngest hated her nails getting cut. I'd have to wait till she was fast asleep and then do it. =)

  • yes ds doesnt like nail trimming, but he doesnt mind the file. I have had him file my nails and he saw it didnt hurt me, I let him file his teddy bears nails, then I did it to his nails and he found it kinda funny!

  • Nail trim = Armageddon

    If I try to nurse her in any position other than lying down she acts like I'm killing her.
