Baby nail clippers
These clippers are designed with magnifying glasses and lights to make it easier to maintain baby’s tiny little nails without hurting them. Having trimmed nails is important to prevent your baby scratching their face.
Cotton wool or soft cotton cloths
You’ll need these on hand not only for bathing but for daily cleaning of all the nooks and crannies on your baby, such as skin folds and behind and under their joints.
There are many varieties available with various methods for taking your baby's temperature. Consider getting more than one so that you can monitor the room or bath temperature.
Nappy rash cream
Try to only use this if a case of nappy rash does arise as opposed to after every change.
Although the idea, of course, is to avoid getting any in your baby's eyes, avoid the chance entirely with soap-free baby shampoo/bodywash.
General purpose wipes
These are handy no matter what the occasion, and are always good to have close by at home or out and about.
Baby powder is used to soak up excess moisture in your baby’s skinfolds and to prevent nappy rash. It is ideal in deep winter with heavy clothing or in the middle of summer when baby will be sweating. Avoid powders with talcum as these are known to cause several health problems.
