As the parent of a non-verbal autistic teenager (Sweet B) who is not fully potty trained and a toddler (Squeaker) who is on the brink of potty training; we go through a lot of baby wipes. Add my niece, Boo-Boo, who just turned a year old- and we really go through a lot of wipes. My diaper changing skills are being put to the test daily.
And if there was a gold medal being given out, I think I’d stand a good chance to win. Or at least place in the top three.
Both of my girls take after me in a lot of ways. One of those ways, unfortunately, is that they have my sensitive skin. Sweet B has it to the extent that even products that are made for sensitive skin; still irritate her. I have the same issue so I guess I shouldn’t be too surprised.
Still, that can prove to be a little problematic when it comes to finding products that will work for her and do the job right.
Enter Water Wipes!
A chemical free baby wipe that contains only two ingredients. And guess what- you can pronounce both of them! 99.9% pure Irish water and 0.1% grapefruit seed extract. That’s it- water and grapefruit seed extract.
And believe me, I was pretty skeptical about them at first.
But after having the opportunity to use them for a couple of weeks, the difference was noticeable.
Whether it’s in Sweet B’s room or Squeaker’s, and in the diaper bag, we make sure to have our WaterWipes on hand.
I wish I’d known about these when my oldest was younger… or, for that matter, when Sweet B was younger. They were both born premature and I think that these wipes would have been great for them. Both in the NICU and at home.
In the NICU, we practiced a lot of skin-to-skin contact or Kangaroo care.
Still, even if our family didn’t have them at that time, I’m so grateful to have them around now. It’s a baby wipe that I can feel good about using on my children. And especially since they have sensitive skin. With only two ingredients, and the main one being water, I don’t worry about the wipes irritating their already delicate skin.
