Product Spotlight: Baby Nail Clippers
When it comes to babies and toddlers, razor sharp fingernails can be a problem. At such a young age, many newborns don’t have such great control over their limbs. To make matters worse, their nails are deceptively sharp. To help, let’s take a closer look at one of our favorite products: Safety 1st's Sleepy Baby Nail Clippers.
Baby Nail Clippers to the Rescue
As we mentioned, those sweet little newborns can be accidentally ruthless when it comes to scratching. Wild swings can slice and dice tender skin… that goes for both the baby and any parents caught in the crossfire!
Let’s face it, scratching is more common than most parents expect. With that in mind, what is a concerned adult to do? Most little ones are far too fidgety for adult nail clippers. A major fear when it comes to clipping their baby’s delicate fingernails is the possibility of injuring the child. This is where baby nail clippers come in handy. These specially designed tools aim to take as much of the anxiety out of baby nail care as possible.
Product Spotlight: Safety 1st Sleepy Baby Nail Clippers
For our product spotlight today, let’s take a closer look at the Sleepy Baby Nail Clippers from Safety 1st.
These nail clippers feature a no-slip handle, designed to provide a good solid grip. As any parent who has tried to clip those tiny nails knows, it can be downright tough to keep a proper hold on both a squirming child and the clipper.
Light Them Up
Since kids love to move, fuss and fight, many parents try to clip nails while their child sleeps. That’s a good idea, since it helps to avoid any sudden jerking hand movements.
Unfortunately, that means that there’s often a lighting problem. Clipping too close to the baby’s sensitive skin can cause an instant yelp of pain. A bit of light would go a long way toward making the job easier. Fortunately, the Sleepy Baby Nail Clippers have you covered. The tool lights up, so you can keep the baby calm in a dim room while swiftly trimming their nails. These clippers also come with an emery board to smooth out any rough edges.
- Non-slip, easy grasp handle
- Emery board slot for steady filing
- Non-replaceable battery included
- Curved cutting edges
- Has a built-in LED light
How to Use
- Lift clipper arm from handgrip and rotate 180 degrees. The light will automatically turn on.
- Carefully position nail between the cutting edges and squeeze the handle to cut the nail.
- Rotate handle back 180 degrees and down for the light to turn off.
* To conserve battery life, the light will automatically turn off after 4 minutes. *
Wipe clippers with a damp cloth and dry after each use. To sterilize clippers, wipe with rubbing alcohol.
