When we found out we were pregnant I remember standing in the baby aisle staring at over half a dozen brands of baby wipes and feeling overwhelmed. To you that may seem incredibly trivial, however, to a soon to be first time mom it seemed like a monumental decision.
Now that my hormones have slowed down I realize that choosing a wipe brand truly isn’t a life or death situation. However, that doesn’t mean that I haven’t developed an opinion! I have tried several brands and here is what I think of them.
Honest Company (72 count for $4.99)
The Honest Company Wipe is definitely my favorite. One thing I love about these wipes is that they are textured. I feel like that makes it a little easier for some cleanup jobs. These wipes also have the prettiest packaging- I know in the grand scheme that means nothing. However, I love it! Lastly, the Honest Company wipes are entirely plant based. The biggest drawback though is the price. This is the most expensive wipe I have tried.
Pampers Sensitive Baby Wipes (64 count for $2.42)
This is my second favorite wipe! I have so far only used the “sensitive” line. There are a few other options within that brand though. One great thing about the pampers wipes is that there is a reward code system (though, admittedly, it takes a ton of points for small rewards). They are thicker than other wipes i’ve tried, stay moist, and the packaging is a good quality.
Huggies Natural Care Baby Wipes (64 count for $2.42)
Like the Honest wipes, these were also textured. They were also the thinnest wipes. However, I don’t think that necessarily effected the performance of the wipe. It still worked better than the Target brand. I just preferred the thicker wipes. This brand also has several other “types” under the Huggies brand name.
Up & Up Unscented Baby Wipes (72 count for $1.59)
Overall this is my least favorite brand so far. The top of the plastic container pops off if you hit it even the slightest. I have knocked the lid off and spilt all the wipes out twice just this week. Also, the wipes as a whole are rather dry and each individual wipe is thin. It is the best deal financially, however the few cents it saves isn’t worth sacrificing quality. (And honestly, you have to use more per diaper so I don’t think it actually saves money).
Babyganics Unscented Baby Wipes (400 count for $14.99)
These wipes were nice because they were also plant based. However, unlike the Honest Co wipes, these had zero texture. They also felt more on the thin side. The smallest package you can buy of these wipes (at Target) is the 400 count box. However, that makes it within half a cent per wipe in comparison to the individual packages of Pampers and Huggies (not the value packs). Also, Babyganics does regularly offer coupons in the Target Cartwheel app!
Anyways, I hope that this information is helpful to you. Hopefully you’re not stressing the small things like I was! Feel free to comment below what your favorite brand is and why!
