Parents remain calm as long as you can. This kit doesn’t have any ink or messy paint. Meaning, you can quickly get a decent copy of print without exerting too much effort. Besides, you don’t need to clean up the mess after getting the print.
2. Call a Friend
Mommies and daddies, do not try to make the footprints on your own. You will need an extra hand to hold your baby in case of a sudden movement.
3. Practice Makes Perfect!
Make sure you get on your most comfortable position and practice getting the baby’s foot on the flat before you open the inkless wipe from the kit. You will be more confident when you make the footprints for real.
4. Get Baby’s Hand on Flat
To get the baby’s foot on flat, you may use your two hands to pull their toe out flat. After that, place the base of your palm onto the paper card. So even if their cute little adorable toes start to close or kick, they will go onto the paper pad right away. Also, be ready to press all of them down and remove the foot immediately before they start to wiggle and kicking.
Once you have completed the steps mentioned above, the print will dry fast within a couple of minutes. After it dries up, you can start to create a design and some adorable flashy things to the print. You can also frame it and have it displayed on your living room’s wall, or create a copy of the print and place it on the memory baby book.
