Cascade Health Care carries a selection of newborn footprint makers and handprint makers for use in medical facilities, birth centers, and more. Newborn footprints are collected shortly after birth to provide better identification records. Around 1960, doctors began utilizing newborn footprint makers because capturing a clear footprint was much easier to obtain than a handprint from a baby’s clenched fist. Hospitals will record the mother’s fingerprints and link them to her newborn’s footprints to assist in identification.
Our infant footprint makers provide the perfect method by which to capture newborns’ feet or hand prints. Our selection includes choices from Kleen-Print, as well as traditional inked footprint pads.
