finding the best baby wipes for sensitive skin

Don’t we all admire how smooth and spotless a baby’s skin is?

Yes, it is delicate but, the softness is out of this world, and we would do anything to keep the skin looking that good.

What do you do when all the wipes you use lead to ugly and uncomfortable rashes on your baby’s bum? Well, you cannot stop using baby wipes altogether because you need wipes to clean up your child at home or away.

So, which are the best wipes for sensitive skin? Which wipes are you sure will help maintain the softness and the freshness of your baby’s apple bottom every time? Which are the safest baby wipes? Which ingredients should you avoid in baby wipes?

As we found out, the answers to these questions need due diligence, research, and support because, guess what, there are tens, if not hundreds of baby wipes’ brands to pick from.

Going by the fact that you will use more than ten wipes every day, how do you choose the best? What do you look for in wipes? We know that we cannot expect you to wring poop out of nappies when you have a disposable option.

What to Look for When Buying Baby Wipes for Sensitive Skin

  • Safety of the wipes
    Are the baby wipes organic, are they unscented, free of chemicals, pediatrician recommended and do they possess natural moisturizers? Do they have vitamins or Aloe?
  • Ingredients
    We can all agree that we are not letting any chemicals close to our baby’s skin, right? To do this, we should watch out for parabens, phthalates, chlorine, alcohol, perfumes, fragrances, phenoxyethanol, polysorbate-20, propylene glycol, and tocopherol acetate.
    You should also watch out for any rough textures, dioxin, formaldehyde, bleach, dyes, and wipes with rough textures.
  • Scented and sensitive wipes
    Sensitive wipes are mostly unscented. They are also free from alcohol and many other chemicals highlighted above. But, be careful about the scent part – unscented doesn’t necessarily mean suitable for use on sensitive skin.
  • Size and thickness
    For effectiveness, you have to get baby wipes that thick and large to withstand any amount of mess. By looking through online reviews, you can easily tell which wipes to avoid.
  • Stretching
    Good wet wipes can stretch without losing their thickness or becoming too thin for use. Just like the thickness of the wipes, you will want to check out online reviews to determine if the wipes will work or not.
  • Ease of use
    Nine out of ten times, you will be cleaning a fussy and angry baby – you do not want to waste time reaching the wipes. So, opt for baby wipes which are easy to use, resealable and with a pop-up lid that seals well after use.
  • Level of wetness
    Do the wipes feel too dry or too wet even when you use it on your skin? You need to change them because that only means that it will make your baby uncomfortable and it could lead to a rash. Most wipes at the bottom of the package are wetter than the ones on top – you may want to store the package upside down.
  • Price
    You will buy most baby wipes in bulk or rather, you should consider buying the baby wipes in bulk because this saves you extra cents. But, before buying, compare the cost of the brands, compare the price per wipe. This is ideal for seemingly similar wipes.
  • Softness
    How does the wipe feel in your hand and what is its texture like? Does it feel gentle or harsh? Textures wipes give you a better grip when in use.
