Experienced mommas may know this already, but itz something I learned after baby William was born. Hospitals (at least the one where I delivered) don’t use baby wipes for diaper changes on newborns. Instead, they use dry wipes. Itz like a soft, thick paper towel that you dip in water. The thinking behind it is that traditional wipes contain harsh chemicals that can be upsetting to your baby’s new sensitive skin.
I continued to use dry wipes dipped in water for the first couple weeks of William’s life. Convenient? Absolutely not. I kept a small tub of water by the changing table in William’s room which wasn’t a big deal, but anywhere else I changed him was a hassle. During one of William’s many newborn photoshoots with Stephanie Cotta Photography, she was changing his dirty diaper. We were laughing as I was literally pouring water from a water bottle onto the dry wipe as she impatiently waited to clean my baby’s bottom because I refused to use wet wipes. But have you ever wondered what is in baby wipes? A bunch of chemicals, I tell ya!
William was happy I didn’t introduce harsh chemicals to his delicate little tush.
Introduce WaterWipes to solve this problem. WaterWipes are the only wipes I have used and will use on William’s baby bottom. WaterWipes have 100% natural ingredients. What does this mean? They contain 99.9% purified water and 0.1% fruit extract. PERFECT! They’re the baby wipes of my dreams! They’re a natural baby wipe that I can take on-the-go and use everyday without irritating William’s little hiney.
Even most “natural” or “sensitive skin” wipes have chemicals. That makes no sense to me. WaterWipes are literally chemical-free and are the only baby wipe like it on the market. I change William’s diaper all.day.long, so itz extremely important that I have something that won’t irritate his skin. WaterWipes help prevent nappy rash, easily clean William’s bottom, and don’t have a fragrance.
I also really like how sturdy the wipes are. Since I don’t use other wipes, I’m not sure how they compare, but WaterWipes hold up really well. When I first brought them to my parents’ house my dad was inspecting a wipe and tried to pull it apart, but couldn’t. I’m telling you, these are the best wipes ever. If we’re out and about and I need to wipe off William for whatever reason (if he had an explosion or if I want to clean his hands or face), I use WaterWipes because they’re just that gentle.
