I participated in an Ambassador Activation on behalf of Influence Central for WaterWipes. I received product samples to facilitate my review as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation.
Being a mom is the most rewarding job I have ever had. It is also by far the hardest job I have ever had. Not talking about dealing with tantrums and tears, but having the sheer responsibility of looking after, protecting, caring for and helping to mold our little ones, is far more responsibility than any job I have ever had.
I feel very privileged to say, had a wonderful example to look to in my own mother growing up. If I can give just a portion of what my mother gave to me, they will be blessed. Today however, is so different in so many ways than it was 30 years ago. Although some would say the same about times when it was 60 years ago, life was simpler in so many ways.
Today, we not only have to worry about the conditions around us but also about the safety of the foods we feed our family. And it doesn’t stop there, we also have the products we use to care for them on a daily basis that becomes a concern.
Who knew that it would be so complicated to really know what was put into or on our foods.
Who would have thought that unsafe chemicals would have made its way into the products we use to clean our babies with?
I am happy to say, that there are many moms out there, that like myself, that are looking for safer alternatives to what is considered conventionally safe. And better yet, some companies are actually listening! I am excited that I have partnered with a company that creates products that work and are chemical free, WaterWipes!
I shared the product with you a few months ago when I shared a few tips for dealing with babies with skin allergies. But you don’t have to have a baby with skin allergies to care about the products you use on your little one. You just have to care!
WaterWipes are a premium European brand that is chemical free. This means their wipes don’t contain preservatives but only two ingredients, purified water and 0.1% grapefruit seed extract. They are strong and effective without all the chemicals. Just because they don’t contain preservatives doesn’t mean they don’t last. Actually, the package will keep for up to 15 months before it is opened. And once you do open your WaterWipes package, it is recommended that you use the pack within 1 month. Who has a package of wipes that lasts a month anyways, right?
I was asked previously when I shared my experience with WaterWipes why I didn’t just use a cloth and water. Let me say, I do that too. Since my first, I have used a combination of cloth diapers and disposables. I tried to use cloth at home and while I was out and about used disposables. That is what I have found worked for me. When I use disposables, I like to have disposable wipes and I use my fair share while on the go.
It doesn’t matter if you use cloth, or disposables at some point, it is nice to have wipes on hand. For that reason, I would encourage you to do a little digging and find out exactly what is in the wipes you are using on your sensitive little one.
