Our guide to choosing the best baby wipes

Choosing the right products for your baby is always an important task, and considering their skin is so much more sensitive than ours, choosing the right baby wipe becomes essential.

Baby wipes are a must-have for all mums, it will prevent nappy rash while keeping your baby comfortable, dry, and hydrated, besides being easy and effective to use. There are plenty of options on the market, but we are going to provide you with some information and tips to help you choose the best baby wipes for your baby.

What to look for in the best baby wipes?

It is important to read the pack to make sure the baby wipes don’t contain any chemicals, but the most common ingredients are:

Water based:  These baby wipes contain as few ingredients as possible as they are made of almost 100% water.

Aloe Vera or Chamomile: These are natural ingredients with a light scent that helps soothe baby’s skin.

Plant based: Biodegradable and eco friendly, plant-made baby wipes are normally made of bamboo.

Fragrance-free: Even though we love scented baby wipes, it is better to start with unscented baby wipes until you can confirm your baby isn’t sensitive to fragrances.

Moisture: Wet baby wipes are the most common baby wipes, but there are also some dry baby wipes that you can just use as it is or DIY and create your own wet wipes with the ingredients you like.

Softness: The softer, the better. A soft baby wipe will be gentle on the baby’s bum and keep his skin safe.

Thickness: A thin baby wipe can tear apart easily and make nappy changes a (much bigger) mess. Go for the thick ones!

Things to consider when choosing the best baby wipes for your baby

* Does your baby have sensitive skin or allergies?
* Look for baby wipes that are hypoallergenic and contain minimal chemicals as well as no scent.
* Quantity and price.
* Unopened packages remain usable for 2-3 years from the manufacturing date.
* Considering that you will use a lot of baby wipes - on average, up to 15 packs in the first 3 months - it is worth getting a bulk pack and saving some money.
