The Best Natural Baby Wipes From Cheek to Cheek

When your little was born did you follow the ‘no baby wipes for 2 weeks rule?’ Call us crazy, but we totally did. Harper, like most babies, was/is a prolific pooper. Every time she did her thing, we cleaned her up with warm water and these washcloths.

I am definitely a believer in preserving a newborn’s natural oils and keeping what comes into contact with their skin relatively pure. But after 2 weeks of non-stop poop washcloth laundry, it was time for reinforcements.

Now to be fair, I haven’t tried every baby wipe on the market, so I can only speak to the ones I have tried.

Here are our top two favorites for everyday messes from cheek to cheek!

With so many baby products on the market, how do you know which one is best? Luckily we've tried a bunch of them! Here are our favorite natural baby wipes!


WaterWipes: The house favorite for little tushies. These wipes are literally 99.9% water, .1% grapefruit seed extract, so they are extremely gentle and ideal for sensitive skin. We get them through Subscribe & Save on Amazon.

Pros: Good for sensitive skin, water-based, available at Target and online

Cons: Not ideal for cleaning up food-based messes as they kind of just spread the food around, wipes don’t replenish as you pull (bad for poop-hands while changing squirmy baby)

The Honest Co. Wipes: When your baby has food plastered to their face after meal time, you need a strong wipe with some traction. For cleaning up the raptor (is Harper the only baby who squawks like a raptor when hungry?), these really get the job done. We’re talking toast crumbs between little fingers, blueberry pulp in hair, yogurt pretty much in every crevice.

Pros: Soft, quilted texture, all natural, available at Target and online

Cons: Expensive!

Notes: The Honest Co. Products (while great) are a small fortune, so I wait until they go on sale on Zulily or I’ll stock up if we get a Target gift card from family or friends.

On our quest to try out different brands of natural baby wipes, we also tried Earth’s Best but found them to be almost soapy and they irritated her sensitive skin. Seventh Generation are also a fav for cleaning up after mealtime, and I will buy these occasionally if they are on sale at the store.

Did I leave off any natural baby wipes that get the job done? What wipes do you use at home and on-the-go?

    I’m an Honest diaper bundle subscriber, so they’re typically the wipes I have on hand… but my FAVORITE “natural”-ish wipes are Babyganics… I like them so much more than Honest! Target has them on sale pretty frequently, and even at list price, they’re cheaper than Honest.

      So good to know! Thank you! I have been meaning to try the Babyganics brand to review on the site. We also did the diapers & wipes bundle for a while. I can’t resist those Honest Co. diaper prints!
