When it comes to taking care of your baby’s bottom there are a lot of factors to take in account. If it’s your first child you really have to try different products out for yourself to know what works and what doesn’t. Don’t worry, it gets easier after the first, but I wanted to share a little information with you that I took the time to research on my own.
One of the most used items that you will buy are wipes-you can never have enough! When my daughter was born I remember the hospital gave us Pampers diapers and wipes to use and that was our go to at home as well. What they don’t tell you about when they give you multitudes of free samples are all the harsh chemicals in the wipes. My daughter was left with multiple diaper rashes and yeast infections using those very wipes. Therefore, when it came time to prepare for my son’s arrival I knew that I had to search for wipes with less harmful ingredients.
To get to the point, I found Water wipes. The ingredients are short and easy to read: 99.9% water and 0.1% fruit extract. Do I miss the wonderful sterile smell of those Pampers wipes? Yes. Would I rather avoid diaper rash and know that my baby’s bottom is nice and clean? Well of course.
If you want to try them for yourself go to Target or order them on Amazon. Babies R Us sells them, but they’re always sold out because they only order them in small quantities. In my mind sold out means somebody is buying them so they should order more, but my local store still hasn’t gotten the memo so you would have better luck at the other places mentioned.
Cheers to rashless bottoms!
