There are bamboo baby wipes too which are safe for the baby. Let’s look at that one ingredient in baby wipes that’s a complete no.

What Are Baby Wipes?

Baby wipes are an easy way to wipe your baby’s face or other body parts. They can be used when the baby spits up or eats messily, for diaper changes, during hot summer days to wipe off sweat and more. However, only go for fragrance-free, natural and gentle wipes.

Unlike cloth napkins or burp clothes, baby wipes are a convenient way to clean the baby’s face and body. 

Why Avoid Polyester Baby Wipes

Polyester baby wipes are made of leftover plastic which is harmful to babies. Polyester is also water repellent hence when it absorbs all moisture from the skin. Hence it leads to rashes, irritation, redness and infections in babies as it comes in contact with the baby’s delicate skin.

What Are Bamboo Baby Wipes

Bamboo wipes are soft sheets made of bamboo and are obtained naturally. They can be used to wipe the baby’s body parts and face safely. They can be commonly used during diaper changes and wiping a baby’s body.

Unlike other wipes found in the market which are made of polyester and harmful fibres, they are biodegradable and effective to make the lives of parents easy.
