If you’ve been reading my blog for a while, then you know my attempt at cloth diapering, and even using cloth wipes. Well, this endeavor ended quickly with my second baby when I discovered her cloth diapers were leaving welts on her legs, even though they weren’t too tight. Since we weren’t cloth diapering, I decided to just ditch our initial plan altogether and use disposable diapers and wipes. There are a few brands of disposable diapers I love, but when it comes to wipes, I’m a but pickier.
Depending on who you ask, people have different preferences when it comes to wipes. My friend prefers thin wipes, I prefer thick wipes. One is not better than the other – it’s purely preference! When I first tried out Seventh Generation Wipes a few years ago, I read great reviews on Amazon so I thought I would be happy. I wasn’t. They were too thin and didn’t come out of the bag easy. Instead of one wipe, about 10 would come out. I really wanted to like Seventh Generation Wipes because I loved other products from the brand and I knew their wipes didn’t contain the chemicals other wipes had, but I was left disappointed.
Just recently, Seventh Generation launched a new version of their baby wipes: Seventh Generation Baby Free & Clear Wipes. Simply put, I LOVE THEM. Yes, I received samples to try out, but no, this does not MAKE me love them. I love them because they are thick, not drenched in solution, and come out of the package easy. They are also textured, which helps clean up a messy baby tush up in a cinch! I read a few reviews from people that stated they didn’t like them, but as I mentioned earlier – it really depends on preference. If you like thick and soft baby wipes that get the job done with one wipe as opposed to 2 or 3, then this may be a great baby wipe for you. And if you check out Amazon you can even save $4 or $6 on a case of these wipes, depending on which quantity you choose. There is a coupon option on the page when you are ordering. I’m not sure how long the coupon will last, but I ordered a case today!
