Ordinary baby wipes contain chemicals that may cause skin sensitivities and skin conditions.
Independent studies in Australia, Britain and the US have identified the chemicals used in ordinary baby wipes as being a factor in the onset of nappy rash, irritant contact dermatitis and eczema.
And those wipes should not be used if nappy rash or other inflammations are evident.
Midwives and dermatologists also agree that conventional baby wipes should not be used in the first few months of a baby’s life. Instead, cooled boiled (i.e. sterile) water applied with cotton wool is recommended at nappy changing time.
