How We Selected

As a parent of two girls and auntie to a new baby, I’m always about time saving and having baby wipes to hand is essential to me.

I know how sensitive little ones skin can be and I’m conscious about choosing wipes which are going to be kind to their skin as well as thinking more about sustainability and being kinder to the environment too.

After doing my own research and reading many reviews, I have collated my top products, which I think tick all the boxes when it comes to the best baby wipes.

All of my selected products have 4-5/5 star ratings and excellent buyers reviews.

What To Consider When Buying Baby Wipes

Age Of Child

It has been recommend in the past that newborns should be cleaned with just cotton wool and warm water, but the latest advice from the NHS suggests “fragrance and alcohol-free baby wipes” are a suitable alternative.

Cost

You will be going through plenty of wipes so to save yourself money it’s worth buying in bulk as you know you’ll get through them. Amazon is a great place to find bulk buying deals on baby wipes.

How Easy They Are To Use

You want to buy wipes which are easy to open and close, have a good seal so they stay moist and come out of the pack one at a time, rather than in one long clump.

Baby Wipes FAQs

Can you use baby wipes on newborns?

As long as they are fragrance and alcohol-free, you can safely use baby wipes on newborns. Always check the recommended age of use before using.

Should I buy scented or unscented baby wipes?

It is really down to individual choice but babies do tend to have sensitive skin so ones containing fragrance could irritate them around the nappy area or on the face.
