What Are The Softest Baby Wipes

Choosing a baby wipe depends a lot on your personal preference and a little on (well, sometimes a lot) trial and error. Texture and wetness level of wipes varies a ton, and it’s hard to know what you’ll like best before testing out different brands for yourself. It’s also tough to anticipate how sensitive your little one’s skin will be to certain fragrances or formulas. We recommend buying wipes in small quantities from a few different brands at first, then stocking up once you find the ones you’ll want to stick with for the long haul.

Here are some factors to consider when choosing baby wipes:

  • Price: Package sizes vary from brand to brand. The easiest way to compare prices is to determine the cost per wipe. However, you may end up using more wipes if they’re cheaper quality.
  • Environment: If you’re concerned about the environmental impact of using wipes, look for reusable or biodegradable types.
  • Ingredients: All wipes are nontoxic, but some are also hypoallergenic, fragrance-free or made with all-natural ingredients, which can be helpful if your little one has sensitive skin.
  • Quantity: You can usually save money buying in bulk, but keep in mind that if you don’t go through the wipes fast enough, some may dry out. Also, you’ll want a few smaller packs to toss in your diaper bag.

These wipes are a popular choice among hospitals and we can understand why. They’re 20% thicker than other wipes, making them feel soft and cloth-like but sturdy enough to deal with the tougher messes. They’re also hypoallergenic and fragrance-free, made with only 99% purified water and a small amount of gentle cleaners.

The simplest ingredients—water and a touch of grapefruit seed extract to prevent mold—make these wipes gentle enough for even the most sensitive newborn skin. There’s no other disposable wipe as pure as these. Just note that because they don’t have chemical preservatives, they can develop mold more quickly. Don’t buy too many at once and don’t put them in a wipes warmer.

Soft and Gentle

Pampers Aquapure Baby Wipes - $16.44.

Just like you can choose cloth diapers over disposables, reusable cloth wipes are an option too. Over time, using cloth wipes can save you money, and there’s really no alternative better for the environment than going this route. These are made from cotton fibers and just require a little bit of warm water. We recommend about two to three dozen wipes if you decide to use cloth.

Super Sustainable

Many plant-based, water-based wipes don’t always do a great job of cleaning up tough messes—but that’s not the case with Honest wipes. These wipes are free of alcohol, parabens, fragrances and chlorine processing but take care of stinky bottoms no problem. They’re gentle enough to use on your little ones face and hands, too.

Plant-Based

Babyganics Baby Wipes - $14.99.

We like Babyganics for what it has (a moisturizing blend of sunflower, cranberry, tomato, and raspberry seed oils) as much as for what it doesn’t: alcohol, parabens, sulfates, phthalates, artificial dyes or fragrances. They’re thick and soft and on the larger side, which we also like. Just keep in mind that they do have a mild scent to them that some parents don’t love, and that they can dry out fairly easily if you buy them in a large pack so you may want to use them with a wipes dispenser.

Baby Wipe Solution For Cloth Wipes

Personally, I loved those thin baby washcloths that everyone gets at their baby shower. They’re not that useful for baths, but they’re just perfect for wiping bums.

Many cloth diaper brands also sell their own branded cloth wipes, or for luxury feels, you can buy ultra soft minky, velour, or bamboo cloths. Etsy is a great place to find those.

Cleaning up with cloth is as simple as just add water and wipe, though many people use homemade wipe solutions, store-bought solutions, or wipe bits. Virtually all of the time though, water was just fine for us.

Storage

There are many ways to store cloth wipes. In the beginning I reused disposable wipes containers and filled them with my cloth wipes folded in half.

But then I had a second baby, and with two in diapers I stopped being fancy and just made a big stack of them next to the change table. This is a great way to get older siblings to help out too. I would draft Tee into helping me dig out all the cloth wipes out of the clean diaper laundry and stacking them neatly.

And when I was diapering on the go, I would take a stack of cloth wipes, fold them in half, stuff them into a small wet bag, and throw the whole thing in the diaper bag.

Dry Wipes

The next question is whether to store them wet or dry. I used a dry system. All my wipes were dry until right before I used them. At home I got into the routine of grabbing a wipe (or two if I could smell there was something messy in there), running them under the tap, and giving them a quick squeeze to get the excess water out before bringing baby to the change table. For really big messes, I kept a roll of toilet paper next to the change table to get the worst of it, then finished the job with the damp cloth wipes.

On the go, I would pack dry wipes and either use the sink in whatever bathroom we found ourselves in, or pour a little out from my water bottle. That way I never had to worry about mildewy wipes. Of course, many parents go for the simple route and use cloth at home and disposable wipes while out, and that’s a valid option too.

Wet Wipes

Some prefer to make their cloth wipes as similar to disposable wipes as possible by pre-wetting them with solution so they’re ready to go right out of the bag or box. Don’t prepare more wipes than you think you can get through in one or two days though. Most homemade solutions don’t last that long (no preservatives, remember?), so it can be pretty disheartening to realize your carefully moistened and folded wipes are getting musty – or even worse, mildewy – in just a couple of days.

Another alternative is to keep pre-made solution in a spray bottle and spritz your wipes just before using. The solution will still go bad after a while (homemade sooner than commercial), but it’ll last longer in a bottle.

Spray homemade or store-bought solution on your wipes as needed

Wipe solutions are basically water, soap, and oil. If you make your own, make sure to boil the water and let it cool before using to keep it lasting longer. Personally, I used plain water 99.9% of the time, but if you’re looking for simple wipe solution recipes to try, here are some ideas:

Laundry

When you already cloth diaper, cloth wipes are a cinch to wash. Just throw them into your diaper pail and wash with your diapers using whatever routine you already use. When baby starts pooping solids, keep a roll of toilet paper at the change table to get the worst of the mess off and flush it down the toilet with the rest of the poop. That way you don’t need to worry about scraping or spraying your wipes. Easy peasy!
