Disclaimer: I received Water Wipes for free to review from Influenster, which is awesome because we use and love them already! As always, all stories, thoughts and opinions are one hundred percent my own.
Diapering and wiping can be surprisingly complicated. I used to think it was just like, the baby needed a diaper change, and you just changed it. The amount of options out there for all the things can be very overwhelming and it totally was for me as a first time mom. This time around I feel a bit more prepared and knowledgable about what works for us after 2.5 years of diapering experience, but that first time around, I was as clueless as they came and wasn’t sure which natural or sensitive skin products would really work for us.
We tried all the conventional diaper rash treatments and finally found a combo that worked for us and it has constantly evolved since. From that moment on though, I was set that I would be the most careful about what products I used on my babe’s precious bum.
Fast forward two years and quite a bit of trial and error we have found a combo of diapering products that:
- keep his now-toddler-toosh rash free
- are affordable and don’t break the bank!
One of these products is Water Wipes! We love these things. So, not only are they approved by and have the stamp of approval of the National Eczema Association, they are THE ONLY chemical free wipe on the market. They literally contain water and a smidge of grapefruit seed extract.
Lincoln had a small eczema flare on his face around the holidays and we couldn’t figure out what was causing it, and then one day at preschool I saw that the kids were given Pampers wipes to wipe their hands and faces after lunch and snack. I brought in a pack of Water Wipes and asked for them to use those instead for him (his teacher is so amazing and accommodating!) and within a week it was totally gone and we haven’t had any issue since.
These wipes are awesome for hands, faces, feet, tooshies and for moms too. I still struggle with hand eczema and it is painful for me to use regular soap and water sometimes so I keep a pack of these in my purse so even when I’m solo I can use them to wipe my hands.
