Handle with kid gloves

What does it mean if you handle something with kid gloves or to treat someone with kid gloves?

To handle with kid gloves means to be very gentle, even too gentle or over-gentle, to the point of smothering or pampering.

Kid gloves are gloves made from the leather of kid goats – baby goats – because the leather is very, very soft.
