Itchy, scratchy Annabelle
Annabelle has fairly sensitive skin. Many times recently, I'll hear her scream in the night but soon fall back to sleep, and in the morning I'll find all sorts of scratch marks near her collar bone, under her ears and across her shoulders. One morning, while I was changing her, I found a little bit of blood on the inside of her shirt and then I found some really bad scratches. And it's so weird because she mostly does this at night. I'm not sure why she does this. We use laundry detergents for sensitive skin and we also put a little bit of baby oil in her bath because when we don't, she's terribly dry. But I'm not really sure what else to do. Any one have any ideas? For now, I'm just trying to keep her nails nice and short and filed smooth.
