Baby wipes are an important item in any parent's changing bag. Beyond their usefulness in the diaper-changing process, baby wipes have a variety of uses that make them a must-have for parents and caregivers alike.

Whether you’re changing diapers, cleaning sticky fingers, or wiping away food spills, baby wipes can provide an easy and convenient solution–but choosing the perfect product and hypoallergenic baby wipes for your child can be a challenge.

At Coterie, we understand the importance of making confident, informed choices to allow you to pick the perfect products for your little one. This is why we have put together the ultimate guide to why baby wipes are so important and why no-fragrance baby wipes and baby wipes that do not contain any plastic are a good choice.

Why Use Baby Wipes?

Baby wipes are a versatile product, and there are several reasons that they can be a crucial part of your baby care routine, including:

Cleaning and Wiping

Baby wipes allow you to clean up any messes or spills that occur around the home quickly and easily without having to get a cloth. From sticky hands to spilled milk, wipes can help ensure your floors and surfaces remain free from dirt and debris. Not only is this good news for your home, but it means that there are fewer potential things for your little one to put in their mouths!

Gentle and Non-Irritating Products

Gentle baby wipes are designed to be gentle on your baby's delicate skin, reducing the risk of irritation or discomfort. This makes them ideal for cleaning around the diaper area and other sensitive areas that may not tolerate regular soaps or detergent. It ensures your baby stays clean and hygienic without feeling potentially uncomfortable or irritated.

Convenient and Portable Solution

As an added bonus, baby wipes are incredibly convenient, as they often come in handy packs, like Coterie’s travel packs, that can easily fit into your bag or pocket. This means you can always have them on hand when you're out and about or when you need to clean up a mess quickly–never be left with sticky fingers again!

What to Consider When Choosing Baby Wipes

As we mentioned, baby wipes are a crucial part of any parent's arsenal, but choosing the right type of wipes for your little one is essential. Here are some key elements to consider to help you choose the best product for your family:


Though it can be tempting to opt for a wipe that smells great, fragrance-free wipes tend to be the best option for delicate infant skin. Strong perfumes and fragrances can increase the likelihood of irritation and discomfort, so opting for gentle, fragrance-free options are best.

Biodegradable Materials

Do your part for the planet while keeping your baby clean and healthy by selecting eco-friendly, biodegradable wipes. Our wipes at Coterie tick this box, as they’re made with biodegradable fibers that decompose in just twelve weeks.


Make sure that your infant's skin is protected by choosing a hypoallergenic wipe, reducing the risk of irritation and diaper rash, which can be uncomfortable.


The ingredients used in baby wipes can vary between manufacturers, so it's essential to check the label and make sure that you're comfortable with them.
