The worst feeling! It gets even harder when more awareness and wiggles kick in. I dread nail clipping! I will say this is the best baby tool investment ever- nail clippers with a flashlight Safety 1st Sleepy Baby Nail Clipper (Colors May Vary) [link]
Been there. Highly recommend the nail clippers that has built in flashlight! [link]
You'll still need flashlight for basic where is hand, but the clippers are great for targeting the nails!
With my first (over three years ago) I cut his little pinky when he was a month old and I cried so hard! I felt horrible:( I was so scared to cut him again that I ended up filing his nails for a bunch of months.
I have gotten so much better at cutting nails since then, thank goodness. I bought the baby nail clipper with the light on the end of it amazon baby nail clipper link it helped a ton to have a light attached. I cut my newborn’s nails while breastfeeding or while he is napping. I push (or peel?) the finger skin as much as possible away from the nail and then slide the cutter over the nail part I plan to cut. This makes it worlds easier since I know the skin is far away from getting cut. Hope that helps!

They were a game-changer for us!

We used them upside down (like instead of using your thumb to do the cut lever thing have your forefinger & hold your thumb steady. I also cut each nail three times - side other side & then top to have it be more level.
As for pumping I reccommend a haaka you can catch your milk from the side he isn’t feeding off of. & yes he may eat from both sides, but if you do this you’ll be giving him more hind milk & he might sleep a little more.
You can also pump before going to bed. That way a big producer. Making sure I was completely empty before going to bed & then waking up & pumping after the feed to completely empty again.
I'll bite. At least in the health category. I absolutely love the Safety 1st Steady Grip Infant Clipper because I think it's easier to hold in you hand than other styles. For gas pains I loved Fridababy's The Windi Gas and Colic Reliever for Babies.... seriously, only wish I discovered it sooner. For diaper rash & prevention Earth Mama Angel Baby Bottom Balm, Natural Diaper Cream. Earth Mama also makes a nipple butter that's amazing for nursing & pumping discomfort. I'm going to post Amazon links, but it'll be my first time posting links from my iPhone so please don't be too harsh with me if it doesn't turn out well ;)
