Keep Baby Clean with Happy Little Camper Wipes! (Review)

happy little camper wipes

            Hey folks! It can be overwhelming choosing what products to use for your baby with all of the options out there, amiright? With my first daughter, I actually kind of had the opposite problem. Regular wipes made her butt red and quite frankly, I wasn't crazy about all of the chemicals and fragrances in them. At the time, all of the “green” baby products just started making their debut...Or, I just didn't know where to look, being a first-time mom and all!
            Fortunately, green baby products are much easier to find nowadays. (Or I just know where to look! ;) ) Even though my second baby isn't much of a “baby” any more, she still wears diapers and makes plenty of messes, so I'm always happy to try new green products. Needless to say, I was happy to recently try out some wipes from Happy Little Camper.
            Happy Little Camper currently specializes in baby wipes, with natural diapers to come soon! As far as wipes, they offer 100% cotton ones and flushable ones! You can also purchase multi-packs, which come in handy, especially for the travel sized packs! We had the opportunity to try out the 100% cotton ones. Here are my thoughts on them, in a nutshell:

*I really like that there are no added fragrances or scents of any kind! It might seem silly, but that is one of my least favorite things about disposable diapers AND wipes. I don't like those artificial smells and furthermore, they seem to contribute to breaking my kids out!

*Not full of unnecessary chemicals. For funsies, I looked these wipes up on the EWG Skin Deep Database. While the wipes themselves are not listed on there yet, I looked up the ingredients I wasn't familiar with since there are so few ingredients in the wipes. Products and ingredients are rated from 0-10, with 0 being really good (health and safety-wise) and 10 being really bad, basically. I'm happy to report that only two ingredients were in the “fair” category at 3 and 5. One of them is an “aromatic preservative”, whatever that means, so perhaps they can find something a little nicer in the future. Still, as I said, it ranked in the “fair” category, so not that big of a deal.

*I also really like that the first two ingredients are identifiable: water and aloe vera. Plus, the aloe vera is nice for soothing baby butts and not irritating them!

*I didn't have to use nearly as many Happy Little Camper wipes as I do other store bought ones that I use. Since we use wet washcloths for butt wiping at home, we only use disposable wipes when we're out and about. Personally, it's extra annoying having to use a billion wipes compared to the number of wash rags we use at home, ON TOP of it just not being fun changing a poopy diaper out in public. These will make life infinitely easier in that sense.

*Since anyone with kids knows wipes don't just come in handy for butts, we tried them out on a jelly toast mess too. I was pleasantly surprised by how well they worked! I didn't have to use many and this kid can make a mess! Plus, they didn't tear or anything.

            Definitely be sure to check out Happy Little Camper's wipes and learn more about them on their website. You can keep up-to-date with them on Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, and Instagram.
