Are Baby Wipes Dangerous?

Baby wipes are full of chemicals and this could make them dangerous to your baby’s health.

The issue of baby wipes being dangerous due to the chemicals that are in them is not yet a big one. Some smaller discussions are going on online but apart from this the general public doesn’t seem to be too concerned by the danger of wet napkins.

Consider what you use your baby wipes for. On the baby bottoms is an obvious one but you problably also clean up baby’s face and hands with them. This is were the issue of the chemicals in the mixture gets a bit sticky to say the least. If you just look at what is in these wet napkins you would not want to put that in your baby’s mouth.

Remember that skin also absorbs these chemicals so even using the baby wipes on the bottom and body can be dangerous. The baby wipes have obviously been tested over and over again but no one has been able to check the long term effects yet. To know just how the baby wipes influences children’s health we might have to wait for studies that will be carried out and completed in another five years and so.
