I think this was one of the first things I bought when I found out I was pregnant as I was trigger happy with my bank cards, buying every baby item in sight. However, this has proven to be a great buy & is something I use all the time. Okay, so I haven’t used everything inside it, but I’ve used a few bits & i am sure I’ll use them all in time as & when I need them!
So, it comes with a little toothbrush, a pair of nail clippers, a pair of scissors, some small nail files (x2), a thermometer, a hairbrush, a comb & a “snot getter rid of-er”. It’s all in a great, handy little case, perfect for storing them so you can keep them together & know where they are when you need them. I ALWAYS use the nail clippers & little nail files - my sons nails grow like crazy & I feel safe using these to trim his tiny nails down (although it does still scare me every time). I haven’t dared to use the scissors yet, think they’re for when he’s a bit older perhaps. I haven’t used the toothbrush as he hasn’t got teeth yet, but I definitely will when he gets them! The hairbrush is soft & good for brushing his hair & brushing out cradle cap, but I haven’t used the comb as my sons hair kinda just disappeared so there’s not much hair to comb at the moment. As my baby was born in some sort of English freak heatwave, I used the thermometer on him a couple of times to check he wasn’t too hot as I was panicking - you simply put it under their armpits for a little while & once it’s done, it beeps & lets you know if it’s okay or not. It was really helpful & helped put my mind at rest. We also recently got to try the bogey snorter as my son had his first cold (it was horrific), he couldn’t breathe while he was feeding & it was just awful so I thought id try anything at that point, so we tried this & you know what? It actually worked surprisingly well! You mustn’t press it while it’s inside the nose, you have to squeeze it before you put it in, line it up with the nostril & then let it go & it sucks all the mucus out which was great as it cleared Elijah’s nose enough so that he could actually drink his milk! You can take it apart to clean it which you have to do after each use (obviously) & once you get over the thought of “I know I’m a parent now but I never thought I’d be doing this”, it’s actually a really handy tool to have to hand. The only issue is, when your child has a cold, they’re not exactly willing to let you stick random bulbs up their nostril but persevere, I believe in you!
I received two of these when I was expecting my 1st baby.
I still use the nail clippers, they are amazingly good. The d
Snot thing, not so good, it's never done the job. The thermometer is ok, used a few times but not as good as others I've had.
Hair brush is very gentle on their little heads.
I received this as a gift before my baby was born. It comes in a lovely little black case, which is great to keep in the changing bag for on the go! The toothbrush was great as a first brush, however ours has now grown mould and been chucked after a few months use! The little brush, nail clippers, Emery board and scissors are very useful. We have yet to use the comb! The nasal suction part didn't really work for us either. But overall a lovely little gift and I even brought one for my SIL!
I received this kit as a gift and it Ha e been so handy, from scissors to nail clippers. I found that the nasal sucker wasn't very effective and the thermometer didn't work. However this kit is so handy and has all the essentials that you need at a good price.
I bought this whilst pregnant instead of buying everything separately and it was a load off my mine in one fell swoop.
I did find it a little odd to have a toothbrush in there as you wouldn't put it back after using but I did really like this set until it the zip broke. It was very satisfying to have a little toolkit. The thermometer however did repeatedly fall out of its cover and drop out upon opening and the nasal respirator came in really useful until I tried to clean it which proved absolutely impossible and so i had to throw it away.
The hairbrush and comb are perfect and I use the brush as my daughter's main brush.
A very useful set of little care tools! My little boy (3 months) recently had his first cold so his stuffy nose was making it hard for him to sleep and that’s when the nasal aspirator helped out! I’ve also used the nail clippers and the brush and comb are great for making his hair nice and neat - he was born with quite a bit! Also, the little case it comes in is cute and handy for chucking it in your changing bag or basket in your changing area.
I originally got this for the nail clippers, little did I know that I would use 100% of the kit. I even used the thermometer to check my baby’s bath. I hadn’t got round to getting one for the bath yet so it was very handy for that.
I couldn’t recommend this product more! This has everything in it you could possibly need as a parent. I was brought this as a present and until my son was born I didn’t realise how much I would use it. The scissors are great and aren’t too sharp so I feel very happy to use them. The best part by far is the thermometers! It’s easy to use and gives you absolute peace of mind.
I brought this set in the Lidl baby event for £10. It has everything I need, even a nasal sucker thing. It’s very handy as I was bound to forget something but the set provides you with it all. Small light and comes with a case.
I love that this is all in one case and can be taken with you when travelling. However I feel that the thermometer and nasel pump could be better as there are better ones on the market. All I. All for the money it is a great product and a good little gift.

This kit is ve4y handy to have around. It is compact good quality and e sites everything is no tgere when you need it. the only negative for us was the thermometer which didn't give accurate readings and the battery cover was not secure.
This was bought before my son was born mainly for the thermometer; though when I bought it I had no idea how helpful it would be!
Firstly, each item is useful in it's own way- the only thing I haven't used is the suction due to personal preference.
The thermometer works well; initially I thought it must be wrong as it said my sons temperature was 35 but another thermometer showed the same, so I made sure to warm him!
The nail clippers and files need to be used every few days for us- the bigger handle makes it easy to grip, and the clippers themselves are the perfect size. Ours have been well used so the brand name is starting to rub off, but does not affect use. The toothbrush i choose to use clean under baby's nails as I had already bought him a toothbrush, but didn't want to waste it! Turns out it works very well for that job and also brushing them down after filing.
The hairbrush is a lovely soft bristled brush, exactly as you'd expect it to be- but i would like to share my own personal tip of a extra use for this! If your child has cradle cap, rub baby oil into the scalp, then gently brush over the head following the child's hair direction. This helps get the oil deeper to the scalp when a child has lots of hair; the brush can then later be rinsed and used to brush out the loose flakes without damaging the scalp. Love it!
Overall I'd say it's an essential set to buy for a baby, and as it all comes in a set it works out better to get this rather than individually. The storage carry case also helps keep it all in one place so you know where to find everything. 10/10!
This is so handy. It has everything you need inside. Comes with the case so easy to throw in the bag when your going out. Quality of bits are good too. Hairbrush is soft and leaves sons hair perfect. Great little kit.
I brought this from mothercare because it had everything in one little bag keeping it all neat and tidy. Nail clippers and brush are what I use the most. Thermometer works fine, used it under the arm of baby. Tried to use the aspirator but it's useless doesn't get anything out of the baby's nose.
I bought this set, it was very expensive. I'm disappointed I had to buy another one because this one was not good. the only thing I like is scissors. the packaging should be of a different material because it gets dirty quickly. other brands have cheaper sets and are much easier to use. plus only for being a nice look
I didn't get the chance to use all of them, but will do in time. It's a very useful kit.
Brush - perfect for newborns to use it.
Scissors - very easy to use and helps me to be fast.
Digital Thermometer - easy to use and shows accurate temperature ( at the beginning I was sceptical and I've use 3 thermometers to check baby's temperature).
Emery Boards - easy to handle while baby is sleeping.
I was given this as a gift which is great! The products are all in packaging and are easy to use. The nose sucker however doesn’t really work it’s a bit too big for my babies nose and he’s 6 months! Also the nail clippers are a bit blunt.
I got this at my baby shower and I appreciate this so much. As a first time mum there were a lot of items I didn’t realise I needed and thankfully this kit has all eventualities covered. The kit is well organised, small and light.
Amazing all in one kit. Good tidy size to travel with, and good quality pieces. The one thing that i have to say is that thermometer as a small toddler she does not enjoy me trying to put something under her arm and keep it there.
