Product Spotlight: Safety 1st Ready! Newborn Nursery Kit
Over the years, we have covered a wide array of products on the Child Safety Blog. Every so often, we like to shine the spotlight on a product that our customers really love. For today’s post, join us for an in-depth look at the Safety 1st Ready! Newborn Nursery Kit.
Grooming Essentials: Caring for Baby’s Hair and Nails
As all parents quickly realize, little ones can be rather delicate. However, they can also get dirty and messy in a moment’s notice. To fix this, it’ll take some gentle grooming. Even more, parents will need the proper tools.
In the past, we’ve written about some baby grooming essentials. One of the reasons we’re choosing to highlight the Safety 1st Ready! Newborn Nursery Kit is that it offers many of these items in one convenient package. Before we discuss the package, let’s talk about two of the biggest problem areas for new parents: the hair and the nails.
First, let’s start with the top of those little heads! A baby’s original hair often sheds in the first few months; but either way, it will need a proper brushing to stay healthy and shiny. Brushing promotes healthy hair growth, but also massages the scalp and calms your baby.
A proper brush and comb should have various “teeth” sizes. These are built to accommodate different hair thicknesses and types. Ideally, the comb and brush should have thick handles. These will help the little one to eventually hold it herself. This moves her towards learning to brush and comb her own hair.
Clipping nails is a big fear for many parents. Those fingers are so tiny and so delicate – but, wow those nails can get sharp! Many a parent or guardian has stopped paying attention for a second only to get accidentally slashed. Obviously, the solution is to clip those nails.
Of course, that may be easier said than done. Babies have tiny, thin nails. To make matters worse, they usually don’t quite understand what is happening when you attempt to clip those nails. This causes them to jerk wildly, which can lead to injuries and a rather unpleasant experience.
Fortunately, a specialized set of nail clippers, like the one included in the Safety 1st Ready! Newborn Nursery Kit is up to the task. These nail clippers are smaller than clippers designed for adults, and are designed for little fingers. The goal is to take as much of the anxiety out of baby nail care as possible.
Extra tip: try clipping those nails when the child is sleeping. It will reduce fidgeting and risk of injury. Just be careful! If you hurt their hand and wake them up, you’ll be in for double trouble.
