Wipes

The in’s and out’s of wet wipes

 

Wipes are one of the most essential baby items, so much so that we don’t even give them a second thought. We take it for granted that when we buy nappies, we must buy wet wipes. Not only do we use them for nappy changes, but also for those sticky hands and faces and anything else that needs wiping.

 

But have you thought about the different wet wipe brands and why they vary in price. What are they made up of and are they good or bad for a babies bum and all over general use for baby.

 

These are some tips to make using them easier

 

  • Look out for Alcohol free and unscented as they will minimise irritation
  • Wipe slowly and gently
  • Don’t rub the babies bum
  • Only use them on the baby’s bum, not other parts of the body unless they contain lanolin or 99% Pure Water.
  • Apply a barrier cream to the bum after wiping with a wipe
  • Use 99% pure water wipes for sensitive babies
  • Check if they can be flushed down the toilet
  • Make sure you have a wet wipes dispenser, its so much easier

 

A baby’s skin is very delicate and a lot more sensitive than an adults, that is why they are prone to getting skin irritations and rashes. The repeated use of wet wipes is one of the reasons for this.

 

This irritation can include ….

 

  • Developing itchiness and soreness
  • Skin turning red and dry
  • More severe skin problems like blisters
  • Burning sensations to the point that it worries the baby

 

To prevent this happening to your baby, always use Pigeon Wipes which is a trusted brand.
