Tiny Tools for Tiny Hands and Feet

Cutting fingernails and toenails is often more traumatic for moms and dads than for the child. Baby's nails grow quickly, and one jagged edge can soon cause a scratched nose or cheek. To prevent your child from injury, keep their nails well-trimmed and smooth.

  • Choose the tool that works best for you, clippers or scissors.
  • Push the skin pad back to reach the white part of the nail.
  • Follow the natural curve of fingernails but clip straight across toenails.

Oral Hygiene Begins Early

Start taking care of your child's mouth even before their first tooth erupts. After feedings, gently wipe gums with a soft washcloth or a dampened gauze pad to help your little one get used to oral cleaning procedures. You can continue to use the washcloth or gauze even after a few teeth have appeared. Eventually, you can work up to a soft bristle brush but stay with water until your pediatrician tells you differently.

Once your child learns how to spit properly, they should be well on their way to a lifetime of good oral health. Games, timers and fun toddler toothbrushes can help older kids get into the spirit of cleaning their teeth for the recommended two minutes.

Keep Nostrils Free of Debris

Before bringing your baby home from the hospital make sure you have a nasal aspirator in the house. Whether it's an electric model, a manual bulb syringe or a tube-sucking device, these handy tools can make clearing nasal canals easy for you and your child.
