“Babies are always more trouble than you thought-and more wonderful- Charles Osgood”
While the birth of new baby is indisputably miraculous, the demands are daunting, exhausting and sometimes frustrating too. On one side, while baby go through different stages of infant development (sitting, walking, and teething) during first year of life, another side as parent we also learnt a lot during this span of time.
Big thanks to latest technology and development that has made our job as a parent much easier than before. Nowadays, we had a wide range of baby essential items that helped a lot to parents to complete their parental responsibilities. From setting up the nursery to gathering the gear for sleeping, eating, diapering, we had tons of baby essentials that will help to create a baby registry that includes all the important stuffs that we need as a new parent. Baby wipes is one of them.
What is baby wipes?
Baby wipes is one of the most common baby essential that has become an important part of daily life for so many families. According to Wikipedia,
“Baby wipes are wet wipes used to cleanse the sensitive skin of infant. These are saturated with solutions anywhere from gentle cleansing ingredients to alcohol based cleansers.”
Uses of Baby wipes
Maintaining a good hygiene and cleaning routine is one of the most integral part of baby care. And for that purpose, just diapering alone will not be sufficient for baby. After every change of diaper it is must to clean bottom area properly and thoroughly to remove faecal enzymes, urine and poop. This step is mandatory to prevent rashes and other skin infections. If the area not gets cleaned properly, it could put your baby at risk for bacterial infection. And sometimes as a new (and also a busy and exhausting) parent, we want something that helped us in quick and hazel free clean-ups.
Here, the baby wipes play a great role and help us in easy and deep cleaning of baby. These wipes not only helps in cleaning the bottom area, but they serve so many other purpose as well such as cleaning the other areas of body, mopping up the small spills in the car etc.
Harmful effects of Traditional baby wipes
While on one side, these wipes are very easy to use and convenient; especially for changing the diapers on the go. Another side there are some associated risk factors too. Such as:
According to FDA
, cleansing wipes are made up of materials such as polyesters, polypropylene, cotton, wood pulp or rayon fibres formed into sheets. They may contain other ingredients such as Methysothiazolinan as a preservative; this substance may cause serious allergic reaction.
Wipes may contain harmful chemicals (as a hidden ingredient), these ingredients are not labelled on baby wipes but they are present (like formaldehyde and hydroquinone). These harmful chemicals are so toxic and irritants, they could easily assimilate through baby’s skin and may cause serious side effects on baby’s skin. And may cause:
- · Severe allergic reaction on baby’s skin
- · Dryness and itching
- · Burning sensation with redness and soreness
- · In some cases blisters may form on baby’s skin.
Although baby wipes have certain chemicals and may cause some harmful effects in some babies, we cannot deny the fact that baby wipes are convenient to use, especially when we are constantly on go. And it helps a lot in maintaining a good hygiene and proper cleaning in baby care.
