About Baby Nails

Just What I Need Design Ltd, is a family run business, a family of four (Mummy, Daddy and two small children) who live in Stamford, Lincolnshire. Their aim is to bring unique products to the market that make every day parenting jobs a little easier and less stressful.

The idea for Baby Nails™ came about not long after the birth of their little boy in 2013. Babies’ nails grow so fast and can become very sharp and ragged. Keeping their nails short and clean is very important to stop them scratching themselves and you. Their son wriggled a lot so they feared using baby nail scissors and clippers on his tiny fingers and toenails. It became a stressful two-person task just to trim his nails.

Whilst sat breastfeeding our little boy one day, mummy thought that this would be an ideal time to file his long nails. He often fed for long periods and this was also a time when he was calm and relaxed. On attempting to cradle him to feed and hold onto a traditional nail file at the same time, she soon realised that this was not going to be possible. What she really needed was a nail file that she didn’t have to hold, something perhaps that she could place over her thumb still leaving her hands free to care for her son.

The idea for the Thumble™ was born and Just What I Need Design Ltd went on to launch Baby Nails in October 2015. They are the only wearable baby nail file on the market and Baby Nails has become much loved by parents from around the world.

Hands up who was scared to cut their baby’s nails when they were a newborn – us too!

It is easy to see why this was created by a mum – we love it, and so will you!

    Overall: (Review for the 6month+ pack) We used this once a week from 5 months. From birth we used to use nail clippers, which were amazing but since my son turned 5 months, it became increasingly difficult as he used to move around so much. These nail files were amazing as I didn’t have to be worried about hurting him. I simply filed the nails down whilst we were cuddling or lying down. I would highly recommend on all babies who fidget a lot from 6 months onwards. The refills last a long time and aren’t too expensive.
