Caring for Baby’s Skin with WaterWipes – Review

A baby’s skin is so delicate and there are so many products out there that are a bit too strong for their sensitive skin.  I’ve been looking at ways to better care for baby’s skin, especially as Q is prone to eczema.  When the lovely folk over at WaterWipes got in touch asking if we would review their chemical-free, gentle baby wipes, I thought they had the potential to really help Q…  Let me explain.


Back in November, Q was admitted to the children’s ward at the local hospital thanks to a bout of bronchiolitis.  Whilst one of the nurses was checking his vitals, she commented that he had a bit of eczema on his back, tummy and legs.  I was surprised that she thought it was eczema, as I had dismissed it as a bit of a viral blotchiness – it didn’t look like any eczema I had seen before and it didn’t seem to bother him.  Cut a long story short, I mentioned it to the Health Visitor next time we saw her and she diagnosed eczema and prescribed some special body wash and ointment to help to clear it up.


Despite using the prescribed medication, Q’s eczema has lingered – particularly on his bottom and legs.  I’ve stopped using scented fabric conditioner and changed to super sensitive laundry products which seem to have helped, but Q’s legs and bottom are still a bit sore.  For the last three weeks, we have swapped our usual disposable baby wipes for WaterWipes to see if they made a difference.


I love the clean packaging to the product; fuss-free and clean, just like the WaterWipes.  The WaterWipes are quite thick and so there’s no need to double up wipes like I’ve had to with other brands when changing a dirty nappy.  As the WaterWipes are quite thick, they hold quite a lot of water and I find them a little too soggy.  More often than not, Q’s skin is a bit wet after using them.


Now, I’m not going to share before and after photos of baby Q’s bottom for the entire world to see.  That would be wrong on all kinds of levels!  So you’ll have to take my word for it when I say that the swap did see an improvement in his condition.  The eczema hasn’t cleared up completely, but it is not as inflamed and red as it was before.  I’d definitely carry on using WaterWipes as disposable gentle baby wipes for Q’s bottom, as we’ve seen the improvement in his eczema.
