My friend that just had a baby suggested this nail clipper to me. The thing is that it's suggested you clip your newborn's nails while they sleep, which is usually in a low light environment. Some other clippers have a magnifying glass, but that won't help you if it's dark. This clipper has two bright lights on each side pointed exactly at the little nail. We tried to clip our nails and it worked perfectly. Will see in two weeks how it will work on the baby.
