Have you tried taking your Baby’s foot or hand and using ink to create a print before? It’s like preparing for a military operation. You need to have everything prepared like all of your supplies, some wipes, and you also have to psych yourself up for the mess you are about to make as well as the uncontrollable cries of your baby. Aside from that, you will also need to have a bath readily available for your baby once you are done. The results you will get are also sadly disappointing as you only end up with an unidentified blur, if not a semi print on your piece of paper, if not one decent handprint.
The struggle to take your baby’s print to come out just right is harder when you don’t come prepared with the proper knowledge and materials. Luckily, we have come up with some of the best tips to help you do this smoothly and with less hassle.
Tips to Get the Right Foot or Hand Print from your Baby
Okay, so first things first, you need to know how to approach the situation professionally especially if you are beginner, so here are some quick tips to help ease the potential hassle you may end up facing:
- Use an Inkless Baby footprint Kit- With an Inkless baby footprint kit, there’s no paint, no ink, and no mess to clean up. After you have taken your child’s prints, you will feel relaxed knowing you don’t have to clean up after yourself. Using an inkless kit will also give you better print results compared to others.
- Have someone help you – don’t attempt to take your child’s prints on your own, as it’s tough to get them to settle down. Make sure you have at least one other person with you to hold your baby. Having two friends and an additional pair will get things done faster.
- Test it out first – when we say test out, we mean to have a few dry runs first before attempting to take any prints. You’ll want to have your baby comfortable and relaxed; if they are asleep, that’s better.
Footprints are easier than handprints – Don’t try to make any prints when your baby is lying down because you won’t be able to apply the right pressure. You’ll only end up with stretched and deformed looking prints. It’s better to have them stand up but relaxed then firmly use the print.
