Winter Skin Strategy with WaterWipes

We were kindly gifted 4 packs of WaterWipes (2x 60 pack, 2x 10 pack) in exchange for this post. 

When I was pregnant, I heard loads of people mention WaterWipes and was always interested in trying them. I've always been a Huggies baby wipes kinda girl however I think I am now a WaterWipes convert. 

They feel really soft and feel really good quality and I am really happy with them! Even better that they're made with 99.9% purified water and 0.1% grapefruit seed extract which means they don't contain any harsh soaps or chemicals and are the only wipes that are endorsed by Allergy UK. 

 

Caring for baby’s skin in winter

Michelle Comrie, midwife at Southampton Princess Anne Hospital offers the following advice:

  1. When bathing your baby, ensure the temperature of the room is warm to begin with and avoid hot baths as they can dry your baby’s skin. Try and limit them to five to 10 minutes  
  2. Be generous when moisturising your baby using a hypo-allergenic emollient to maintain and protect the natural skin barrier. Coconut oil has also been shown to be an effective natural moisturiser with emollient properties.
  3. Between bathing, remember to regularly clean baby dribble or spit up from their neck area and keep this area dry to avoid ‘dribble rash’. Opt for a chemical free baby wipe, such as WaterWipes, made from purified water and grapefruit seed extract, which is renowned for being a natural skin conditioner.
  4. Your baby is also much more likely to suffer from dry, chapped lips or sore cheeks as their skin is thinner. Try rubbing a small amount of coconut oil on the baby’s face and lips before going outdoors and try and limit the time they spend outdoors when it’s especially cold. 
Hopefully these hints and tips will help you through the winter with your babies! 
Remember, layers, layers, layers.
