Diaper Rash. The mention of the words makes me sad and empathetic towards babies. Do you know the feeling mamá?
I cringed at every diaper change hearing my daughter cry as I wiped her down. I did not want to imagine the pain her sensitive skin was experiencing at only 5 months old. And by no means, could I avoid changing her diaper, right? It would only create more severe diaper rash. Frequent diaper changes to keep her dry and comfortable are key.
Other than smothering her bottom in anti-diaper rash ointment to seal out wetness at every diaper change (we were going through tube after tube at this point), I would also give her two daily baths. Two very long daily baths. Those two months she practically lived in the bathtub.
By the time she was 7 months old she was a total and complete water baby! She knew the routine to help her soothe her bottom. My smart girl.
Later, I realized I was not helping my daughter’s diaper rash, when I learned of all the extra chemicals found in baby wipes to add fragrance and help the liquid bind longer to the threads of the wipe. What? I was dumbfounded. I read ingredient lists for food, beauty, and hygiene products, but never stopped to read the ingredients on baby wipes! Have you been in this type of situation? Feeling relief to have found a solution, but upset because you knew you should have probably known the solution sooner.
I searched for a better and safer alternative and found WaterWipes
Have you used WaterWipes before? Please let me know of your experience, if you have. Out of necessity, we sometimes use other brands, but we always go back to WaterWipes, especially when her diaper rash condition reappears. They’re perfect for her sensitive baby skin!
Water Wipes are made with only two ingredients: 99.9% Water and 0.1% Grapefruit seed extract. That’s it! Super safe and gentle! Free from chemicals and preservatives.
WaterWipes recommends using their wipes within 4 weeks of opening the bag and storing them in a cool dry place, since the lack of preservatives allows the wipes to dry faster, but that shouldn’t be a problem. If you’re like me, you use wipes for everything baby! Everything. haha
To remedy the water not binding to the wipes for long and staying at the bottom of the bag instead, simply squeeze the WaterWipes packet a few times while turning the packet upside-down to allow the water to redistribute throughout the wipes. Fairly simple, right?
A few more seconds of pre-work before a diaper change, but a lot more peace of mind knowing your baby’s skin is rash free! And no more crying at every diaper change! We see less irritation approximately after the third diaper change. *happy dance*
No wonder WaterWipes was awarded the National Eczema Association Seal of Acceptance. Honestly, I didn’t even know the award existed, but I’m sure my Ellie agrees with the judges! And so do I.
The life of a mamá. It’s truly the little things that bring pure love and joy in life.
