    Default Safe baby ink/paint

    It's my dads birthday this weekend and I had this idea to buy a grandad card from DD and put her hand or feet prints in it. Just wondering what is safe to use on DD? A dye or ink of some kind that washes off with water. Are there kids paints that I can use on a 7 week old? Thanks for your help

    Most paints and inks made for kids would be fine. Look for one that says non-toxic or a use a water based paint.
    When both my bubs were born there was someone in the hospital that comes around and puts some ink on their foot and makes a footprint on a piece of paper, super cute!

    Or you can buy "inkless print sets" I won one off bubhub and used it for DS2, it was great
