When it comes to cleaning your baby, a common misconception is that you’ll only need baby wipes when they are going through potty training or meet with any accidents. But that’s not it, because as toddlers get older, you don’t only need them for wiping their bottoms but to also ensure that your baby remains as clean as possible throughout the day. Read on to find out how many babies wipes parents need.
New parents will roughly need about 900 wipes in a month for a newborn baby. An older baby may need about 480 wipes in a month. Assuming that a parent buys a pack of wipes that contain 56 wipes in them, then you will need about eight to sixteen packs of wipes in a month for your baby.
Some parents may be unsure as to how many wipes are needed for cleaning up their baby. There can be an imbalance of solid poops and liquids or a mix of one or the other.
If you consider that some babies might need a single wipe whereas other babies may use up to four, then a pack of eighty wipes should last about a week if you use about three to four wipes per diaper change. As your baby grows older, you’ll need more wipes each time for a thorough clean-up.
On average, a baby will use about seven diapers each day. Hence if you’re using five wipes during each diaper change, then you will use about thirty-five wipes in a day. However, this number may change depending on the size of your baby and how often they need to change their diapers.
If you are considering buying baby wipes in giant bulk sizes, the good news is that unopened packages of baby wipes remain usable for about two to three years after manufacturing. As for the opened packs, they remain usable for four weeks.
When it comes to using baby wipes, parents must only pick the ones that are gentle and alcohol-free as they can irritate the baby’s delicate skin, so #LablePadhoMom. Avoid overusing them and remember to bathe your baby timely.
