For me I don't have lasting soreness after jabs but for these two vaccines, it was so sore for 2 weeks. But it was so effective. Shared food with my 2yr old sick nephew, not even a sniffle

Anyone eat chilli with confinement food?
I would suggest to avoid or to have in moderation

Sharp baby nails
How often do you cut/trim/file your baby’s nails? I cut/trim/file them with a nail clipper and electric file but they are still sharp. My baby will scratch me when she is frustrated.
As and when required. Do trim the nails everytime
Mine I used pigeon scissors. My LO nails grow very fast. I cut then about every 2-3 days. Still very sharp after I trim them.
VIP Member
Twice a week. Yes they are sharp again after few days.☺️
Once a week. Quite hard to cut as he is too active. Have to wait till he is asleep

As and when it’s needed. Nowadays, it’s almost every other day coz she scratches her face and neck.
