Your bundle of joy is in your arms and you want nothing but the best of everything for your newborn. Your checklist of baby items is sorted, and I am sure one of the most crucial items you have in your diaper bag is the baby wipes. This useful product comes in handy to wipe little hands, face, and the small bum at home or while on the go.
Besides, with summers already upon us, it’s good to stock up on wet wipes for a quick clean-up to soothe the baby’s skin!!
But choosing the right one that should suit your baby’s skin could be a little hard. I suggest you should first buy wipes in small quantities and then stick with it if it suits your baby’s skin. To start with, first, check if the wipes have the following features:
- Hypoallergenic, safe, and gentle
- Made with natural ingredients, like plant fiber
- Alcohol-free and unscented
- Thick enough to clean the mess
- Good Packaging
Here’s I have rounded up the tried and tested top 5 baby wipes with the price. Hope you find the list useful.
- Mother Sparsh 99% Pure Water (Unscented) Wipes:
Now, this product got me sold out on two things- Unscented and 99% pure water. Since heavy fragrance is off-putting to me too, I always prefer unscented products for my kids. Moreover, many times baby’s sensitive skin can’t handle fragrance, especially in the diaper area, so it’s best to avoid scented wipes. The water-based wipe of Mother Sparsh is as good as cotton and water making it an ideal product for gentle cleaning the baby’s diaper area, hands, and face too. The wipe is also three times thicker than its counterparts ensuring that the baby’s delicate skin is cleansed properly and moisturized too during the diaper change.
If you are an eco-conscious person, then this is an ideal choice as Mother Sparsh wipes are made with plant-derived biodegradable fabric. Therefore, when disposed you can be sure it won’t harm the environment. The pack comes with a unique moisture lock lid that doesn’t let the wipes get dried up like other regular wipes.
A packet of 72 wipes comes at the price tag of Rs.299/-. It also comes in a pack of three, five, and six. A pack of 3 costs approx. Rs 660/-
- Pampers Baby gentle wet wipes with Aloe Vera:
This could be an ideal choice if you are looking at the two S’s in the wipes – Strong and Soft; as a single wipe of Pampers is both. The wipes are dermatologically tested and have a pleasant scent too. These water-based wipes (almost 97 percent) have the goodness of Aloe Vera also in them. Aloe Vera, as we know is best known for treating skin conditions, so this one makes it an ideal choice if the baby’s skin is susceptible to diaper rash or redness. A pack of 72 wipes cost Rs. 119/-
- Johnson’s baby skincare wipes:
A brand synonymous with baby products, Johnsons can always be trusted for its quality and effectiveness. These wipes are “alcohol-free, soap-free, and are clinically mildness proven.” These mildly fragrant skincare wipes are made with water-saturated fiber which proves gentle on a baby’s delicate skin. Plus, the wipes have moisturizing lotion in them, so when you clean the diaper area it cleans it as gently as a soft cloth. This one too has a flip-top, which keeps the moisture of the wipes locked in. The cost of a pack of 80 wipes is Rs 245/-
- Himalaya Herbal Gentle Baby Wipes:
Himalaya is a known name when it comes to the finest baby care essentials. And the wipes from this brand are formulated keeping the baby’s sensitive skin in mind. The wet wipes are enriched with the power of herbs- Indian Aloe which keeps the skin moisturized and helps soothe the skin rashes, And Indian Lotus which keeps skin soft and supple. A few others feature which makes this wipe one of the most sorted ones is – it is devoid of alcohol, silicones, lanolin- all which can cause skin irritation. The wipes have a mild aroma and are packed very neatly. A pack of 72 wipes cost Rs 200/-
- Huggies Nourishing Clean Baby Wipes:
These thick and highly absorbent wipes are infused with the goodness of Aloe Vera and Cucumber- the two ingredients best to keep your baby’s skin cool during the summer months. Other features like these wipes being soap-free, alcohol-free, paraben, and preservative-free, make these wet wipes a preferable choice for your babies. The fragrance of the wipes is not overpowering, and the mild fragrance goes away after some time. This one is also great value for money. A pack of 72 costs Rs 150/-
