Challenges in the First Two Months

-supplementing the first week before enough milk came into feed Opal  

-sleeping! Opal didn't like to be put down and doesn't like to be alone.  She screams as though being tortured if put in her bassinet. 

-cradle cap! It got in her eyebrows for a while!  

-witching hour: Opal sometimes becomes a wild little screamer from 6-10pm

-consoling Opal any other way besides nursing--sometimes it seems impossible!  

-clipping her nails without cutting her! She's so squirmy but they're so sharp... 

-cleaning the lint out of her little clenched hands!
