Wipe it all!

Apart from looking for a perfect diaper for baby (Diaper: To change or not to change), we also hoped to find a brand of a baby wipes that we could use other than our trusted brand, Johnson's.

Johnson's baby Skin care wipes ultra sensitive fragrance free cost us 159.00php for 80 pieces of cloth wipes that will only last for a week or less. Despite the price, it took us months to risk other brands because Johnson's brand proved their quality especially when it comes to moisturizing baby's skin and strength. Cloth wipes made by Johnson's are soft and moist making it ideal to use in cleaning baby's bottom. We are also using Johnson's baby messy times that is gentle for cleaning sticky hands and face during meal time. one of the items listed on my post "Must-bring"

In search of  a new brand of baby wipes, we wanted it to be just exactly like of Johnson's--soft, moisturizes baby's delicate skin, strong, not so thick; but cheaper :)
A few months ago, we bought Unscented Nursery Baby Wipes. One pack has 66 pieces of alcohol-free and silky soft cloth wipes. Each wipes are thick and strong but not as soft as Johnson's, they're not as moist either. They can be ideal for home use but not for baby's delicate skin. I am actually using them to clean toys, cribs, spills, and even in dusting my laptop keyboard *grin*

Yesterday we bought another brand to try on. Pure Joy, one that is formulated with Aloe Vera and Vitamin E. Its cost is less than a hundred pesos (~89php, correct me if I'm wrong, I lost the receipt) for 80 pieces of alcohol-free powder scent cloth wipes. They are thick and are strong enough that I cannot tear then into half. I usually tear-off Johnson's wipe into two  to maximizes its use. One piece of cloth from any brand is quite big that you can't actually use all sides because when you clean baby during diaper change you only wipe once, you don't wipe repeatedly to and fro; you have to pull another piece if needed to avoid spreading baby's poo and wee. The most common of infection among baby's is using only one piece of cloth wipes, rubbing the same wipe to clean the whole area.

Pure Joy baby wipes looks reliable. I'll find out if buying a pack of baby wipes that is cheaper than Johnson's can help us save. Today, our dispenser tub of Johnson's Baby Skin Care wipes needs a refill, we will use Pure joy :)

  1. Sis, try mo Baby First, it is hypo-allergenic and it has Aloevera pa. You may buy them at Watson's for only P99.00 for a pack of 2 (buy one take one). :)

    1. thnks em, nakita ko na yon kaso kala ko di sya maganda kasi medyo manipis ang packaging, not sure:) kaya iniisip ko baka dry... try ko next time pag naubos pure joy:)

  3. As a starter, I've used Johnson's wipes too. Then later on I bought other worthy brands too for my baby boy's delicate skin... but kept the Johnson plastic container :D
