So let’s just start with a grain of salt here, because: It’s not the best idea to follow someone else’s ranking of the best baby wipes. After all, your baby’s bottom has needs that might not be in line with another bottom! And as the book says, Everyone Poops, but not necessarily the same way. Or, it says something like that?
But at the same time, if you’re just starting out in your baby wipe journey, you might need a bit of guidance. Look at this as a place to start. Then, make a few purchases and judge for yourself.
Do you value an eco-friendly baby product over a super-clean feel? Is your baby’s skin too sensitive for fragrances? Do you need thickness and texture to get the perfect wiping action. These are the kinds of slightly gross things you have to decide along the way.
But before we go any further in this deep, meaningful conversation about ways to clean butts, please read this PSA: DO NOT FLUSH BABY WIPES. Even if they say “flushable,” even if they’re plant-based and biodegradable. Yes, even if they’re full of poop. If you’re not in the mood to have a plumbing disaster, and if you are a responsible citizen who enjoys a functioning city sewer system, please toss these in the garbage.
Of course, all of these baby products are great for your own use too. Just don’t forget to save some for the little ones!
