Best Gifts for New Parents
SwipenSnap Diaper Cream Applicator
One of the hardest struggles for any new parent is changing diapers on an uncooperative wriggly mini human being.

This clever applicator fits most brands of cream and allows a parent to squeeze and smoothly apply the cream in one easy movement. As well as convenience, the smooth soft applicator also protects a parent’s hands from getting messy with cream. When the job is done it’s a simple task to pop the tube into the suction-based lid, keeping the cream safe and ready for the next change.
