How can I get my baby to cooperate with prints?

Babies don’t understand that you’re trying to make beautiful artwork. Artwork that they’ll  look back on when they turn sixteen and they’ll put their feet and hands up next to it and be amazed at how much they’ve grown. So how exactly do you get your baby to cooperate with having their prints done?

  1. Make sure your baby is in a good mood. If baby is fussy then it’s not time.
  2. Get everything ready and close by so you don’t have to leave baby alone.
  3. Get baby in diaper, you don’t want paint everywhere so it’s a good idea to put baby in just their diaper.
  4. Wash baby’s feet in between stamping  and give baby breaks if you’re doing a lot.
  5. Choose washable paint, or be careful.

These are just a few tips that can make baby print stamping a little easier for you when the time comes. Be sure that you’re baby has plenty of memories to look back on in years to come.


 

So whenever you and baby have some time, be sure to make memories and enjoy your time while baby is little. Because baby isn’t always going to be teeny tiny and willing to do prints. Do you have any fun child hand print stories to share? Tell me all about them in the comments below!

      I’m sure you can find a local artist in your area that will be able to do this for you. Some cities also have companies that do body molds. You will be able to find them with a google search in your area! Good luck!
