One baby essentials must have when welcoming baby home is a good nail care set. While some new and expectant moms get a gift set filled with hair care products, as well as nail clippers, emery boards, etc., it isn't until you actual try to cut your baby's nails that you see if these are good clippers or not. I had received a few different nail clippers with the gift sets I was given, and wondered why they all looked different. Weren't all baby's nails the same? It wasn't until I tried to cut the nails of my girls, either when they were sleeping, or as they drank their bottle on my lap, that I found myself struggling. I had trouble grasping one nail clipper as it was too clunky. The second nail clipper just seemed to tear the nails and would leave hang nails. When using this nail clipper, I found myself having to reach for the nail scissors to trim the torn nails for a cleaner cut, so that the girls wouldn't scratch their face when they rubbed it with their hands. The third nail clipper worked for the first few months and then seemed to get dull a short time later, thus leaving me to look for new nail clippers for the girls. And, I have been trying out different nail clippers since then, which is about 3 years now. But, I am happy to say that I finally found a nail clipper that works great on both baby and young children's nails.
As a Nûby™ Mom, I get to try out different products from their growing product offering. While it has been a while since I last shared reviews, I am excited to kick off 2015 with their Nûby™ Nail Care Set, which has finally let me put a stop to looking for nail clippers that actually cut my girls nails, without leaving hang nails or sharp corner.
And, best of all, my girls don't mind me cutting their nails. Before these nail clippers, they would have me chase them around the house as soon as they saw me reach for the nail clippers, or hear me say to sit down so that I could cut their nails. They knew that I would struggle to cut their nails, and they hated having me have to pull out scissors to cut split nails.
In addition to the nail clippers, which come with a hygienic cover (which I love and have never seen with other baby clippers I have bought in the past), you will also get 1 pair of stainless steal scissors (also with a hygienic cover), as well as four emery boards. My girls, who are 3 and 4 yrs. old, loves the polka dotted nail clippers and emery boards, and were excited for me to try the out on them.
And, when they saw that they actual cut without fuss and left their nails with a smooth cut, they didn't mind when it came time for a nail trimming...they actually looked forward to it!
I am so happy that I was able to try out the nail care set from Nûby™, and will definitely be recommending this set to new and expectant moms, as well as including in baby showers gifts I will be giving in the future. After spending years trying to find the perfect clippers that were made for baby's delicate nails and that adults could actually hold with these, I am happy to say that my search it over, thanks to Nûby™! :-)
