Don't Fear The Mess With Pampers Baby Wipes

Being a mum of three and having two young children only 14 months apart (I have a 2-year-old and 11-month-old and also a 12-year-old) means that I am used to the mess that baby's and children can bring. My baby boy Jacob loves to be sick, have nappy explosions, wee everywhere as soon as his nappy is removed and cover himself and everyone else in food at meal times. And my toddler Sophia is even worse for mess she gets food everywhere when eating, and she loves to be creative and colour herself as well as her picture in with pens and paint. 

Baby wipes have been my saviour these last two years, I clean a lot of little bottoms having two little ones in nappies. But Baby wipes are not just great for nappy changes they get used for everything in this household, such as cleaning sticky hands and faces, cleaning the mess of the highchair /wall/ floor and even myself, getting pen off my wallpaper, the list goes on as they have endless uses. And they are also rather brilliant at doing what they are meant to do and cleaning little one's bottoms.

So when I was Invited by Pampers to try out their sensitive baby wipes and do a little experiment with my children, involving a little cute rubber duck to find out how the PH levels of pampers wipes compared to plain old water and cotton wool. I just knew I had to give it a try and find out for myself, as I was intrigued to see which was kindest to little one's skin. I was sent a pack from Pampers which included a packet of Pampers sensitive wipes, a rubber duck, a bottle of water, some cotton wool pads, a little dish for the water, some PH papers and some double sided sticky tape. Everything we needed to conduct our own little home experiment to see if cotton wool and water or Pampers baby wipes had the most natural PH balance.

I made a little video with the help of my oldest Chloe and youngest Jacob which you can watch below and see how we got on with the experiment. 

As you can see in the experiment the Pampers sensitive wipes had a much more natural PH balance the water and cotton wool, making the wipes kinder to little one's skin than water. I was a little surprised with this as each time I have had my children I have been told on the postnatal ward to use cotton wool and water to clean my newborn's skin with. Although I admit I did use baby wipes instead as they are just so much easier and more effective than cotton wool and water for nappy explosions. 

We use these wipes on Sophia who has sensitive skin and eczema and they are so soft and gentle and have caused no irritation at all for her, even when we use them to clean her hands and face. Pampers wipes are dermatologically accredited by the skin health alliance which means that they are kind to little one's sensitive skin. And they are made with a unique soft grip texture which makes them thicker and super soft which provides gentle cleaning with less wiping. Perfect for two messy children like I have. 

So if you have a little one or you are due a little one don't worry about the mess a child will bring as no matter what kind of mess they create, even if your baby has a poo face. Don't worry as long as you have a packet of Pampers baby wipes it will be ok and there is no need to fear the mess as these baby wipes will help you clean up even those really bad nappy explosions. 

Why not check out the funny and adorable new Pampers video below if you have not already seen it. And if you are unsure what poo face is then this little clip will inform you #PampersPooFace. 

I'm working with BritMums and Pampers testing their wipes and featuring their new #PampersPooface video. I was provided wipes and have been compensated for my time. All editorial and opinions are my own. 



  1. wipes are so handy! It would be difficult to do without them with a baby and they are also useful now.

    1. I know I use wipes for everything and anything I have packets of them all over the house , I think I will still be buying them even when my baby is older x

  4. I don't think anyone can honestly say they look forward to nappy changes, but when I need to do it, I like to know that I'm using a quality brand that nurtures, cleans and cares for my baby's delicate bits.
