How to choose the right wet wipes

Choosing the right products for your baby’s skin can be difficult, and with the variety of products out there, it can also be overwhelming. Of course, for a thorough and non-irritating cleanse, we recommend always washing your baby with water and gentle soap but when you’re on the go, wet wipes are the way to go.

Why buy Wet Wipes?

Wet wipes are a must-have for parents of not just babies, but toddlers as well.  One quick wipe results in a one and done job. They should be an essential part of your diaper bag whether you plan on using them or not. They’re convenient, hassle-free and if you make the right choice, safe to use!

How do you find something that works very well, but is also gentle?

1| Read the Ingredients

This is the first thing you should do if your baby has sensitive skin. Avoid products with fragrance or alcohol as they can cause irritation. You might be tempted to use scented wipes, but believe me, fragrance free is a much better and safer option

2| Watch out for Packaging

When you’re on the go, you need packaging that is durable and will hold despite being thrown around your diaper bag, purse and anywhere you might be changing your baby. Also make sure there’s an effective seal to preserve freshness and moisture, otherwise the entire packet will dry out and you’ll be left with just tissue

3| Go Big or Go Home

The bigger, the better. Bigger wipes will cover more surface area, so you’ll end up using less. Also, look for wipes that are thicker to make sure your hands will stay clean during the process and nothing icky will seep through!

4| Buy Wet-Wipes in Bulk!

On the go, you’ll be using them to change your baby, wipe their hands and probably yours as well. There’s nothing worse than finding yourself without wipes when you need them the most. So you want to make sure you never run out.
