Product Review: bloom BABY Sensitive Wipes and Giveaway!

bloom-baby-wipesWe’re always on the lookout for non-irritating wipes for our baby’s sensitive skin.  At home, we use our own cloth wipes and homemade diaper spray, but on-the-go we use packaged wipes.  If we’re out of town for a week, the exposure to the so-called “sensitive” wipes usually results in an angry bottom.

bloom BABY Wipes is one if the new ones we’ve tried, and after a week of use we’re irritation free!  I’m always skeptical about claims of being “sensitive” or “gentle”, since it’s not always the case.  But bloom Baby has taken a lot of care to achieve a “Skin Safe Rating”, and includes the risk level and benefit of each ingredient on the outside of the packaging. The Skin Safe Rating is based on the Handbook of Green Chemicals and Whole Foods Premium Body Care Standards, which rates each ingredient based on evolving scientific and regulatory data to ensure their safety.

Do you use Eco-friendly Baby Wipes?

I didn’t with my first child.  They seemed so much more expensive than the standard brand that I couldn’t bring myself to make the switch.  Then, with my second baby, Rebecca inspired me to make the leap to cloth wipes.  They’re easy, incredibly inexpensive, and much more eco-friendly than green disposable wipes.  (I just picked up a few packs of baby washcloths at the dollar store and that three-dollar investment is holding strong almost two years later.  We simply spray them with water before using them.) What wipes do you use?

 

 

Why don’t you . . . use cloth wipes?

This post is a part of the illuminating Why don’t you” series. No judgment! We’re just curious.

This is a funny one. Joy’s first baby was born just seven months after mine, so I was her go-to cloth diaper expert for a while—until she became an expert herself. She was 100% on board with cloth diapering, but something kept her from using cloth wipes. She claimed it would take more time and energy, even though I insisted it wouldn’t. I tried to reason with her. She just wouldn’t listen.


Thank goodness she had a second child and was able to see the error in her ways. Here she writes all about it, though somehow she neglects to credit me with her change of heart!
