A baby’s hands and feet need care and attention too. Starting from keeping their hands and feet warm yet comfortable, to caring for their nails.


Teething is a natural process marked by the appearance of the baby’s first teeth. The first emergence of teeth can indeed make your baby look adorable but the process is painful for your baby as the gums become tender and sore making your baby crankier than usual.


Many parents are of the opinion that a baby does not need any teeth care or hygiene to be maintained as primary or ‘baby’ teeth are temporary and will fall off, being replaced by permanent teeth.


Shopping for your baby is an endless ‘Alice in wonderland’ experience. You do not know where to begin from, what to choose and exactly how to end you’re shopping for your baby’s wardrobe.
