This post was sponsored by WaterWipes as part of an Influencer Activation for Influence Central. I received complimentary products to facilitate my review.
The last 17 months have been a whirlwind, let me tell you! Adjusting to life as a mom of three after being a mom of two for so long has been a bit of a juggling act. I figured I knew everything I needed to know this time around- which products to use, what baby gear was absolutely necessary (and which ones were completely useless), and I was positive that I wanted to be much more cautious about sticking to natural products with baby number 3. See, my first 2 babies had the most sensitive skin ever, and I quickly learned to read and watch all labels carefully to avoid a rash or a crazy breakout of eczema. Because of that, I decided to opt for everything to be fragrance-free and labeled for sensitive skin, just in case baby Harper was anything like her big brother and sister.
As it turns out, she's exactly like her brother and sister and her skin is even more sensitive to fragrances and chemicals. After a stubborn bout of diaper rash that just wouldn't go away, I finally started looking into the wipes I was using on her. They said fragrance-free and were labeled as "safe to use on the most sensitive skin." However, I flipped the package of wipes over and looked at the ingredient list (side note: this was the first time I'd actually read the ingredient list). After the first two ingredients, aloe and water, I was shocked to see a list of about 20 different chemicals that I couldn't even begin to pronounce. Could these be contributing to Harper's horrible rash? Could that be why she's been flinching and screaming when I gently wipe her little red bum with these chemical-laden wipes?! I had to find a better wipe option.
I headed to my happy place, Target, to peruse the baby aisle in search of a truly chemical free wipe. They had to exist, right? That's when I first saw the display for WaterWipes, and as soon as I read the label I was wishing someone would have clued me into them sooner.
WaterWipes is a premium European brand and is a chemical free baby wipe that contains only two ingredients: 99.9% purified water and 0.1% grapefruit seed extract. That's it. No harmful, hard to pronounce chemicals, as well as no preservatives. It's the closest you can come to cleaning your baby with just pure water, all wrapped up in a convenient little package! WaterWipes was recently awarded the Seal of Acceptance by the National Eczema Association and is perfect for babies who are prone to rashes and have sensitive skin or eczema. Having trouble with recurring rashes? Switch to WaterWipes- a safer, natural option for your little one.
I now use these wipes for everything- not just for wiping baby butts. Have a snotty nose that needs wiping? WaterWipes are great for that. Sticky, grubby hands? Even the big kids can use WaterWipes for that, and they won't end up smelling like a baby wipe afterward. Dribble some coffee down your shirt? WaterWipes! Sitting in the pickup line at school and notice your dashboard is dusty? WaterWipes works great for that, too! Because it contains no chemicals it's safe to use on just about anything.
WaterWipes have been a godsend for my little one's sensitive skin! I recommend them to all of my mama friends. From one mom to another, here's a little extra info: because they don't contain preservatives, an opened pack of WaterWipes should be used within 1 month, and a sealed package will keep for up to 15 months. Also, WaterWipes are different from other wipes and are not interfolded- this keeps the environment within the package to remain sterile, and it is not recommended to store with wipes in a different container (to keep them sterile you should keep them in their original packaging).

They make a great baby shower gift, from one mom to another :)
