When it comes to keeping your baby happy and comfortable, you can count on Sam’s Club® for all the essentials. New parents learn quickly that there’s nothing more important than keeping your changing station stocked with plenty of diapers and baby wipes.
Baby wipes are always on the list because they are one of the most indispensable baby care items. Disposable baby wipes are made of soft cloth that contain moisturizers and cleansers to help clean your baby’s skin quickly and efficiently. Of course, they’re essential when you’re changing diapers. But they have other uses, too. Cloth baby wipes are also perfect for cleaning little hands after snack-time or even taking care of minor messes at home, in the car or on the go. They’re also great for traveling.
But with so many baby wipe options out there, how do you pick the best ones for your family? Good news: There is a wide range of great options available for discerning parents like you. Sam’s Club® can help you make the best choice for your baby. Here are a few things to consider:
- Fragrance. Some types of baby wipes are fragrance-free while others have pleasant, soothing scents. Choosing scented or unscented baby wipes is a personal preference. If your little one has sensitive skin, you may want to opt for baby wipes without a fragrance, as they’ll typically have fewer ingredients.
- Packaging. What type of packaging do you prefer? For the changing area, you may opt for a plastic package with a pop-up lid. The most common types are tubes and boxes. These packages are designed to keep the wipes moist. Plus, they are easy to open and close with one hand, which is particularly handy when you’ve got your baby on the table. Sometimes, you may want different packaging. For example, when taking baby wipes with you in a diaper bag, purse or backpack, you’ll appreciate a more compact package. Then, you can opt for the smaller, flatter packages. They are more like pouches which are resealable, so the wipes stay clean and moisturized.
- Thickness. Baby diaper wipes come in a variety of thicknesses. The thicker the wipes, the better they’ll hold up. You might consider having some thicker wipes and some thinner wipes on hand for different uses. The thinner wipes are just fine for cleaning faces and hands, while the thicker wipes are ideal for changing. One thing to keep in mind is that when you opt for thicker wipes, you’re likely to use fewer of them each time.
- Ingredients. Since babies have delicate skin, you’ll find a range of baby wipes that avoid certain ingredients. If you want to avoid perfumes, opt for fragrance-free wipes. You’ll also find that some brands offer baby wipes that are free of alcohol and parabens. (Parabens are used as preservatives. They also prevent the growth of mold and bacteria.)
No matter which products you choose, it’s important to be aware of the ingredients in them, just in case your baby has sensitive skin. Stock your nursery for less with bulk baby wipes from Sam’s Club®.
