Baby Wipes 3: Store Bought Wipes Giveaway!!!

Thanks for sticking around through my wipes series where I shared making DIY Disposable Baby Wipes and DIY Cloth Baby Wipes. Now what about store bought wipes? Today I share some information and have a giveaway for a 3 month supply of super natural WaterWipes.

Store Bought Baby Wipes

I have bought a lot of baby wipes over the past 6.5 years. I love the disposable wipes for trips, disposable diapers, quick face washes on the go. I tried to use cloth for these purposes but sometimes a girl needs balance and convenience. You've probably seen these babies with bad chemical rashes from baby wipes. Plain water works great for baby wipes, it is all I have used for baby #3 with our cloth wipes. 

It is easy to pick out wipes, just read the ingredients like you would a food label: if you cannot pronounce it or it isn't natural, don't get it. After all, our skin is our largest organ and everything that goes on our skin is absorbed into the bloodstream.

Example: Huggies Soft Skin Wipes
  • Ingredients: Water, Potassium Laureth Phosphate, Glycerin, Polysorbate 20, Tetrasodium EDTA, DMDM Hydantoin, Methylparaben, Maleic Acid, PEG 50 Shea Butter, Aloe Vera (Aloe Barbadensis) Extract, Tocopheryl Acetate (Vitamin E), Fragrance 
  • According the Environmental Working Group, these chemicals can cause "Ecotoxicology, Allergies/immunotoxicity, Irritation (skin, eyes, or lungs), Miscellaneous, Organ system toxicity (non-reproductive), Neurotoxicity, Biochemical or cellular level changes, Endocrine disruption, Allergies/immunotoxicity, use restrictions."
YUCK!

I use only water with my homemade cloth wipes and my baby's bottom is always clean and rash-free BUT disposable wipes are such a purse staple for me for diaper changes, dirty faces and hand washes.


Luckily, there are some really great brands out there that understands that water is the best solution for cleaning a baby.  Even my local Walgreens sells these WaterWipes that are 99.9% water and 0.1% grapefruit extract. They are a natural baby wipe that prevent diaper rash by fully cleaning my baby's bottom and keeping the harmful chemicals off her bottom. You need to know what is in your baby wipes

Can you tell that I am excited about these wipes?! My toddler gets messy and sticky diapers yet these wipes make her clean using just two wipes. Also check out their facial wipes that clean my makeup and my baby's snotty nose in an easy wipe. Thanks WaterWipes for hooking me up and sponsoring this giveaway!


Here it is... the giveaway!

Post a comment about baby wipes below and you can win 12 packs of 60 wipes! You have until 9pm Wednesday so hurry and share with your friends.  This is open to addresses in the U.S.A. only.

  1. Thanks for creating such a great blog and for putting together this giveaway! I would be excited to use these wipes when my first baby is born in September. Today I bought my yard of fabric to make your cloth baby wipes --- which will be my first sewing project on my grandmother's 30 year old Singer that I just had tuned up. Thanks for sharing this great idea!

  2. We use cloth wipes at home and disposable when we are out so this would be wonderful for us to win! To make our cloth wipes we cut up old receiving blankets and also just spray water on them :)

  5. We use water and cloth wipes at home but always have trouble with my travel water bottle leaking for diaper changes on the go. I've resorted to store-bought wipes for my diaper bag but would love to be wiping my baby's precious bottom with mostly water wipes outside of the house!

  9. I just found your site and am so grateful! Its been 5 years since our last baby and so much has changed! We cloth diapered and used homemade cloth wipes with him, but now we're starting from scratch again. I love the fact there is an alternate to regular wipes that are safer and non-toxic. These will definitely be going in our diaper bag!

  10. Glad to hear there are products out there that I would actually allow to touch my skin, let alone my baby's. This is also good for other care giver types (like grandparents etc) who might be taking care of the little on spontaneously and want ot have some on hand. Thanks!
