If you or someone you know has just had a new baby, there are many questions that may be running through your mind about personal hygiene and health concerns. Thankfully there are many resources out there today that you can refer to with any questions you may have, no matter what time of the day or night you are looking for answers. One of the major inquiries on a new parent’s mind may be what type of diapers and diaper brands are good for my child’s skin. When thinking of diapering, you will also want to consider sensitive wipes to go along with diapering your child.
If you take a look at any store today you will notice an abundance of brand names for sensitive wipes and diaper brands lining the shelves. Pampers, Huggies and many others including store brand names as well. How to tell the difference between them can be challenging for new parents. One of the best ways to differentiate between sensitive wipes of one kind and another is to read the labels and compare the contents. Ingredients like scents and harsh chemicals will not be gentle on your baby’s bottom and should be avoided if you are looking to purchase sensitive wipes.
Often the difference between one brand of sensitive wipes and another brand are minimal. You may find that the only significant variance is the overall price of each brand. While one brand may list their sensitive wipes for one cost, another brand may have theirs priced lower to try and corner the market for those looking for that product. If you are not particular about a specific brand such as Pampers or Huggies, then you many want to shop frugally for the best possible priced product.
If once you try one brand of sensitive wipes, your baby has a reaction such as a bad rash or skin irritations from prolonged use, you may want to switch to a different diaper brand of sensitive wipes. While this does not happen often, some children will be sensitive to one specific type of diapers and wipes which limits the brand name products that the parents have to choose from. Often it is a trial and error process when your child develops a sensitivity or an allergy to a certain type of diaper brand or wipes. You may also find that your baby may be find with one type of sensitive wipes at the beginning of use but after some time, skin irritations develop. Do not take this lightly, as your baby’s skin health is important, especially since they are in diapers 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Remember to do your homework when choosing diapers and sensitive wipes. Not every diaper brand is equal and the products can vary significantly so you will have to explore all of the options available and make the best choice for your budget and your baby’s skin. You are the best person to choose products for your child and all of their diapering needs. Keep in mind to choose sensitive wipes that are alcohol free and have no scent added to them and you can avoid irritations for your baby’s skin later on.
