How to use Baby Wipes for your baby’s delicate skin?
Hello new mums and dads, if you are new to the parenting world, we suggest you get ready to embrace the glorious, messy moments with your baby. Trust us, it’s going to be fun and don’t worry, you’ve got us and baby wipes for most of the mess. From soiled bottoms to mopping up any kind of spills, these are going to be your new best friend for a couple of years or even forever!
Before we tell you how to use baby wipes, we are sure there would be a gazillion of things you would want to ask about baby wipes. So we’ve got answers to these common questions to make your life easier.
Do you really need baby wipes to change a nappy?
Yes, you do need them. You need baby skin care products which are made specifically for baby’s delicate skin. Using a cloth or cotton wool with water will initially seem to be good but as something that’s in constant touch with your baby’s bare, often sensitive bum, you’ll need to have a baby wipe which is gentle, has enough moisture with durability to cleanse the bum and the sticky poo.
How do you know if the baby wipes you’ve got are the right ones?
With so many baby wipes options out there for you to choose from, finding the right one could seem like a task. You’ll first need to consider all the multi-purpose uses you’ll be having, such as for feeding, pooping, messy hands, etc. Then keep in mind that each time you get your baby’s nappy changed, you’ll need to clean it with a wipe, so go for a baby wipe that’s gentle as water on your baby’s skin.
Sometimes baby’s cute little bums also develop rashes or eczema which could be a real pain for you and the baby. For such times, it’s better to use a wipe that soothes baby’s skin and moisturises it with love. In fact, you can even try Baby Dove Rich Moisture Baby Wipes; it’s dermatologically and paediatrically tested, hypoallergenic with an alcohol-free formula.
These handy baby wipes will make each diaper change or everyday clean-ups easy and effective. You can easily pull individual wipes and the pack stays fresh once opened, making your life easy even on the go. Now isn’t that just the best!
