Going out and buying baby products is exhausting. There are so many products on the shelves. If you’re a first time mom, you may feel overwhelmed. If you’re a second time mom, you may already have a product in mind. We want what’s safe for our little ones. Products that we can trust. Brands that keep us coming back for more. With my oldest, I only bought hospital recommended products. But, as she grew older, funds grew tighter. So, I just went with whatever I could. But, Dray is a bit of a different story.
Dray has suffered with sensitive skin since he was born. Almost every laundry detergent, baby wipe, and diaper causes irritation. So, buying necessities for him come off a little bit tougher. They have to be safe for sensitive skin. There would be so much regret if I purchased a product with a lot of extra chemicals in it.
Do you know if your little ones are suffering from sensitive skin? There are sure fire signs that will reveal if your baby has sensitive skin. The signs are easy to look for.

There is one product that has won my family over. That product is WaterWipes. They were introduced to me at just the right time. Dray’s already sensitive skin had just begun becoming irritated due to his wipes. So, we needed to find a natural product for him fast. Allergies are not fun. Especially not for babies with sensitive skin.

Plus, they’re open 24/7, 365 days a week. Which is great for those late night family needs. Picking up a few packages of WaterWipes at Walgreens was a breeze.
