SAFETY 1st: Be Ready for Your Infants Health and Grooming Needs

Registry shopping is an exciting time full of future possibilities.  It’s a new stage of your life even if it’s not for baby number one, and you want to enjoy it to the fullest.  So it’s hard not to fall in love with so many of the adorable products available and add them to your Registry while also including the day to day more big ticket essentials you will  require and quickly fill in your list of gift options.

However, don’t forget that as much as you will protect your child from many of the hazards of the world, there will be times when they catch a cold, get a fever, or have specific grooming needs.  Infant health and grooming products are available for newborns and toddlers by trusted brands like Safety 1st.  These are also great registry items that you’ll appreciate having on hand when the need arises to monitor and care for your baby without delay.  Many are sold as individual items and also in kits which makes them great options for people shopping in different price brackets.

Here are some products you may want to consider:


Look for options that can measure your baby’s body temperature in at least a few different locations (e.g.: oral, armpit, ear, forehead, rectal). You don’t need to cover all possible locations but you need more options than an adult since a baby will rarely sit still long enough to get an accurate reading under the tongue, especially in discomfort.

It’s a good idea to take a child’s temperature when they are healthy to get a sense of their natural body temperature since everyone is a bit different. This will give you a reference point to compare against when you are checking if they are sick.

One option that’s popular and easy to use is the Safety 1st 3-in-1 Nursery Thermometer. This product measures underarm, rectal, and oral temperatures and shows a visual indication when the reading is complete.

For more bells and whistles, the Safety 1st VersaScan Talking Thermometer takes an accurate reading in just one second from your baby’s ear and reads out the result as well as displaying it. It has an indicator light that turns red in event of a fever, plus it saves the last 30 readings to help track any changes over time.

Healthcare Kits:

Selecting products in a kit is a cost effective way to get multiple essentials all at once – often with the added bonus of coming with a convenient carrying case to keep everything in one place so it can be found quickly when needed – and makes a great registry item.

The 1st Healthcare Kit from Safety 1st is a great starter kit that includes a nasal aspirator, medicine dropper with spill guard, thermometer, toothbrush, and wipes to keep them clean – and comes with a zippered reversible carry bag.

Grooming is another important responsibility to keep your child safe, healthy and looking good when out and about.  The 1st Grooming Kit from Safety 1st contains the essentials such as fold up nail clippers with curved cutting edges, emery boards for stress free nail shaping, a spritzer bottle to tame unruly hair with travel sized water mister, a soft bristle hair brush and comb all in a compact case that reverses to a pencil case for travel and storage.

If you want to combine both health and grooming items, there are also more Deluxe kits that combine the two.

So go ahead and pick out lots of fun, cute items for the nursery or playroom, as well as day to day gear essentials for on-the-go and add them to your Registry – but don’t forget to also select the products you’ll need one day without warning so you’ll be well prepared.  For a full selection of health, grooming and safety Registry ideas from Safety 1st click here.
