What experts liked
Wipes use a hypoallergenic design that has both aloe and vitamin E for natural protection.
- BestReviews
Two of our moms said these were their go-to wipes, and they loved them. They are thick, durable, soft, and the moms reported no issues with diaper rash. They are a bit less oily than the Pampers, they don't leave the same slight film on your hands, which is good. The texture of the wipes is soft with some imprinted letter H texture; they are so soft and moist that we sometimes found them a little bit "mushy" when dealing with.

They are available in different packaging styles like disposable soft packs, nursery tubs, clutch style and refill packs and boxes.

They are easy to dispense even with one hand. The wipes are pH balanced.
- Mom n Kids
Made of 99 percent triple-filtered water,reviewers note that the wipes are gentle enough for newborns, but also are hearty enough to use on toddlers.

Cleans your baby’s skin gently, but effectively with a combination of chemical-free ingredients. Three pack comes with over 600 individual wipes. Refillable to save time and money.

There isn’t a strong smell, even without added fragrances, which is beneficial for both you and your little one. The wipe packages have EZ Pull Dispensing to help pull out just one wipe at a time when you need them.

Gentle – Most reviewers felt like these wipes were great for their babies that were prone to diaper rash or otherwise had sensitive skin. A lack of alcohol was mentioned frequently.

They are really thick and ultra-absorbent so nothing nasty will seep through on to your hands.

Effortless to open with one hand.
- Wiki EZ Vid
We highly recommend these wipes for babies with sensitive skin and they are also really affordable. The 99% water make up will also aid in restoring the natural pH level, while the vitamin E will protect the skin from scathing and helps strengthen the skin.
- King Mommy
What experts didn't like
May not clean as well as other wipes. Seems to dry out fast.
- BestReviews
One big difference 2 of the 5 moms noticed was the smell. Though they are fragrance-free, there is a faint odor that 2 moms mentioned as a negative; the other 3 didn't notice it. The odor is a bit of a chemical smell, though we have found them generally very sensitive on bums.
- Mommy Hood 101
Some customers did not find the baby wipes as durable as the company claims.

Greenwashing: There's nothing particularly “natural” about these wipes, which contain several skin-irritating ingredients. They are not made with any special “green” ingredients, nor are they compostable (and therefore they go to landfill where they will not decompose).
- Also Mom
The wipes come in bulk resealable and not in smaller and convenient packages.

The wipes are a tad harder to pull out of the soft packs as the number of sheets is reduced, but you can counter this by buying the Huggies tub and using the refill packs to stock your tub.
- Mom n Kids
These medium-thick, relatively soft wipes feel like they could tear at any minute.They’re champion wipers, but if you’re looking for truly natural wipes, these don’t really fit the bill.

Refills don’t have a sealing option, so don’t lose the original packaging with the close top.

The wipes themselves are relatively small, so you might be using more than one or even two at a time to get the job done. When being pulled out of containers, the Huggies wipes tend to tear or rip more easily. For some, the wipes might be almost too wet each time you pull a new one from the package.

Several reviewers noted that their wipes were either drier than normal out of the package or that the giant refill bags forced you to have a plan to use/store the wipes so they didn’t dry out to quickly.

Tend to tear if pulled too hard.

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!

DYWM Fun Fact

  • Baby wipes were marketed and sold by multiple companies beginning in the ’90s.
  • Kimberly-Clark and Procter & Gamble were the first producers of baby wipes in the 1970s.
  • The Wet-Nap (little packaged wipes you get at restaurants occasionally) was introduced in the 1950s, but had such a high alcohol content that they couldn’t be used on babies.

The Baby Wipes Buying Guide

  • When deciding what baby wipes to use, search the internet for free sample sites. There are quite a few websites that will send you free trial size packs of wipes to promote their products.
  • Once you’ve put your finger on the wipe you like, you can always find coupons to help keep your costs down. The company’s website is a great place to look for coupons for their products.
Kristin Forte/Simplemost Media
  • 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.
