Baby wipes are essential when you have a baby. They come in handy for any cleaning purposes including during diaper changes, milk spills, spit-ups and even sweats. As baby has delicate and sensitive skin, parents need to be mindful when choosing the right baby wipe for your baby.
What is important to look for in baby wipes?
- Gentle on the skin and free from harmful substances
- With the least ingredients and free from harsh chemicals and fragrances
- Made from natural fibre such as cotton
- Thick enough for efficient cleaning
- Moist enough to clean your baby’s mess.
Here are the products we recommend parents when choosing the right baby wipes for your baby.
- Cleaning baby’s bum during diaper change
We believe less is more. Hence the good-old-fashioned cotton and water is the best for cleaning baby’s delicate and sensitive skin. Choose large-size ingredient-free Antibacterial Cut Cotton to clean your baby’s genital and diaper area for a rash-free bum. Not only that, it is made thick enough to absorb much more water to clean your baby’s poop. Baby wipes that are too dry can be rough on your baby’s skin and can cause irritation or rashes.
