The must-have baby item you never knew you needed... until now

The must-have baby item you never knew you needed... until now

When it comes to baby gear, there is no shortage of 'must haves'.

From the life-saving breast pump (ahem the Haakaa cough cough), to the essential swaddle suit, and everything in between, there's PLENTY of stuff for such a tiny little person. And most of it you'll buy well before B-Day arrives. 

But there's another category of baby gear. It's the stuff you never realised you needed UNTIL you suddenly did. Usually at 3am when your newborn refuses to settle. Or on that afternoon when you're visiting your work colleagues and suddenly find yourself wearing a full days worth of breastmilk that's been lovingly regurgitated by your offspring. 

It's the bottle of baby Panadol and the perineum soothing ice packs. The things that make you go; 'I WISH I KNEW ABOUT THIS BEFORE.'

And the nifty little device below? It absolutely falls into that category.

Making life less terrifying for new parents

'A nail care set?' we hear you say. 'Surely that's not an ESSENTIAL?' Those are words spoken by someone who has most likely never had to trim a newborns nails. Because anyone who HAS will know that there is not much that is more terrifying in life than holding what is basically a blade right up close to the teeniest nail beds you ever did see.

The Haakaa Baby Nail Care Set makes trimming tiny talons quick, easy, and because it's pressure activated, accident free! All you need to do is attach the trimmer pad suited to your child's age and gently file down their nails. No scissors required! There's even a little spotlight attached to make it even easier to see what you're doing. GENIUS!

It's just one of those nifty tools that you never realised you needed... until now.
