What experts liked
Gentle enough to use on any part of the baby's body, including hands and faces. Cleaning formula includes 99% pure water.
- BestReviews
They’re made almost completely with water for a more gentle feel and effect on your baby’s skin. In some cases, you might only need one wipe to get the job done for your little one.

These wipes are purely made from just water, cotton and a splashing of a gentle cleanser. If your child suffers from skin conditions or allergies, these sensitive baby wipes offer a gentle but thorough approach to cleaning.

Soft and Grippy: Super soft wipes with little scrubbers that help get bums (and faces and hands and other things) clean.
- Also Mom
Free from skin irritants and allergens.
- Mom n Kids
It's 99% pure water.
- Born Cute

Good for Newborns. Because these wipes are mostly water, they are good for newborns’ sensitive skin.

What I love about Pampers Aqua is that they are made with the same high-quality cotton wipe that I love with Pampers Sensitive. The cloth wipe makes or breaks it for me, and out of all the ones I have tried — Pampers is the best. Not too small, not too big, not too rough, not too wet, not too dry — Pampers Aqua Pure are just right.

What experts didn't like
Wipes are almost too moist,meaning they may dampen bedding.
- BestReviews
Since there’s no fragrance at all, some might be put off by the natural smell the wipes give off. While the wipes will stay wet when in a tightly closed pouch, they’re probably not any more consistently wet than standard baby wipes.

Greenwashing: This wipe is from the new Pampers Pure line, which was created to compete with Honest Co. and other green-leaning baby brands. Just know that there's nothing especially environmentally-friendly about these wipes, despite the packaging.
- Also Mom
The pop-top sometimes doesn’t latch properly, but it didn’t seem to affect the moisture content of the wipes.
- Mom n Kids
Still contains trace chemicals.
- Born Cute

Too Wet. Some users found that these wipes were too wet and made a mess. Not for Warmers. The manufacturer does not recommend that these wipes be used with a warmer.

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

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.

  • 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.
