Buying for a baby can be a daunting task for any parent. Most of the parents are very careful about the hygiene of their baby, and why shouldn’t they? A proper hygiene translates to a healthy baby and a healthy baby is a happy baby. One of the most important components of a baby’s hygiene are wipes. Many parents think that they will be using warm water and wash cloth but once they experience the convenience of disposable wipes, they rarely go back.
The parents have to be extra careful in selecting wipes that are of the best quality, hypoallergenic and economical. Another key aspect to consider when selecting wipes is their composition. Many of the products available on the market may contain certain chemicals such as phthalates, phenoxyethanol or parabens which may be harmful for the baby especially for very young babies. In addition, there are many ingredients such as polysorbate 20 (common preservative) and tocopherol acetate (synthetic vitamin E which is used as a skin softener) may not be listed in the ingredients at all.
It is therefore of paramount importance that parents should pay a close attention to the wipes they are using for their young baby. The following may serve as a guide to help you narrow down your research.
