This was our first year trying them out, and we were very impressed! These wipes are marketed as sensitive and high transparency for ingredients and ingredient sourcing.

You’ll love how soft and large these wipes are, so these should be great when cleaning the diaper area, face, and hands. For your peace of mind, you’ll have no worries with these wipes because they are 100 percent free from parabens, bronopol, methylisothiazolinone, fragrances, alcohol, dyes, and phthalates.
- Womens Edge
Most of the contents used to make these baby wipes are sourced from within the US and a few from china. It consists of polyester, viscose and polypropylene which are fibers that are blended together to form a soft but strong cloth wipe. It also contains pharmaceutical-grade purified water that makes up at least 97.9% of the liquid found in these baby wipes and whose purpose is to moisten these wipes.

What experts didn't like
However, they were a bit on the thinner side, which was the only drawback relative to ones higher on this list.
- Mommy Hood 101
The product may be strong, but it is among those wipes that are drier than necessary. It means that because of the dryness level, we find that it does not clean effectively. More wipes are needed to completely clean poop or other mess. On top of being dry, it is also less absorbent.
- Authority Adviser
Very thin wipes

Some moms have seen rashes on their babies after using these wipes, so make sure they’re not allergic to any of the natural ingredients by testing on a small patch of skin.

These disposable wipes cannot be rehydrated if they dry out. Might cause discoloration, odor or unwanted growth on the baby wipes.
- Net Parents

The pop-out design on these wipes is poor which means when you pull on it, about 10 of them come out and this is a bit inconvenient when you only wanted to use one wipe.

An Overview On Baby Wipes

As a new mom, one of the toughest things to know is the quality of wipes before you buy them. The worst is when you are pinching pennies and grab a generic brand of wipes that just don’t work well or worse, leave a chemical burn on your baby. You can find tried and true reviews from fellow moms to help you decide which wipes work best and are safest for baby.

There are several different types of baby wipes. Baby product companies have had to change their ingredients in the last couple of decades because of new research regarding potentially harmful chemicals. Since the research surfaced, companies have been striving to make nearly all-water wipes with very little other ingredients. That is why you will find many varying types. You’ll find sensitive wipes, fragrance-free wipes, scented wipes and free and clear wipes. Some brands offer several different kinds to choose from so if you find a brand you like, you can give each type a try.

A few things you’ll want to look for in a wipe include thickness, textures and scent. In addition, price is a huge factor for most parents since diapers and wipes can really push a budget. You’ll find a wide range of prices when you shop baby wipes. But don’t be lured into the lowest price wipe, as they are often extremely thin with potent fragrances and not so great for baby’s skin. Taking those things into consideration, here are a few excellent choices recommended by parents:

Thickness is a must-have so you don’t find yourself in the middle of a diaper change, needing to frantically wash your hands. The Huggies Natural Care Baby Wipes offer excellent thickness and will keep your hands clean from any diaper messes. They are also hypoallergenic for sensitive skin. Often you can find these wipes in varying sizes at different price points, so your budget doesn’t have to suffer for a quality wipe.

For a sensitive, fragrance-free option, fellow parents choose Pampers Sensitive Water-Based Baby Wipes. These wipes are soft but thinner than their competitor, Huggies Natural Care. They tend to be moister than most wipes as well.

Sometimes you’ll need baby wipes for more than just diaper changes, and in those cases, you’ll want something that is extremely mild, especially for faces and hands. The Pampers Aqua Pure Sensitive Baby Wipes are just the thing to keep in your travel bag. These wipes are super gentle and soft with no added fragrances.

When the budget trumps all, parents turn to Amazon Elements Baby Wipes for a trusted clean. These wipes are durable and textured for tackling the messiest of diaper duties. Unscented and gentle cleansing wipes, packaged in six flip-top packs, make diaper time convenient and affordable.

As time goes by, you’ll learn which baby wipe works best for you and your baby. These suggestions are rigorously reviewed and tested for allergens and chemicals to avoid any rashes or burns on baby while still cleaning baby thoroughly. Find your favorite and be sure to stay stocked. Baby wipes are one thing you do NOT want to run out of!

  • Buying in bulk will help save some money in the long run.
  • Subscribing to products you like on Amazon can help lower the cost of your baby wipes order as well.
  • You will want to buy a wipe that has very little or no phenoxyethanol, sodium benzoate and Cocamidopropyl betaine if your baby has sensitive skin. These are types of preservatives and fragrances that cause skin irritations.
