Huggies Baby Wipes Review

Huggies

When I had my baby girl 7 weeks ago, I got a free pack of Huggies baby wipes from somewhere... I think it was in the Bounty pack which you get in the hospital. I thought I would write a review on them, as I am sure there are a few mummies who are trying to decide whether to buy Huggies or Johnsons baby wipes, or perhaps a supermarket own brand.

I'm not one to turn my nose up at a freebie, but I have to say I really dislike these Huggies baby wipes!

I don't use baby wipes very much, as I use cotton wool and water on baby girl's botty when I am at home. I only use the baby wipes when I am out and about.

Smell-wise, the wipes seemed fine, I didn't have a problem with that at all.

My main issue with the baby wipes is that whenever I tried to get one out of the packet, I pulled off a really small bit of the wipe, rather than getting the entire wipe out. I don't know why this happened - whether it was due to their strange texture, or my slightly long nails. I eventually resorted to removing 3 or 4 wipes at once, so I could easily get at them when my hands were otherwise engaged with stinky bottoms.

I've got 2 or 3 packets of Huggies wipes to go through because of the freebies at the recent Cybermummy conference, so I will try and use them up, or give them away. But I will never willingly purchase Huggies baby wipes.  It will always be Johnsons baby wipes for me!

Which baby wipes are your weapon of choice?

    my favourite are Jackson Reece Herbal wipes. They are fantastic, and have none of the 'bad stuff' like SLS etc that both huggies and JJ have. I must say I found that with the huggies too - they tore apart on getting them out of the bag, and were quite dry!

    I wrote a review of them a while back. They are really great. http://www.diaryofafirstchild.com/2010/05/31/jackson-reece-kinder-by-nature-baby-wipes/

    Yeah I had the same problem with Huggies. They really mesh together. I didn't use wipes though until son was about 4 months old. Just want to point out that there's a recipe for making your own wipes right here on PlayPennies! http://www2.playpennies.com/feature-homemade-save/

    I find I have the exact same problem with the huggies baby wipes. I've ended up using pampers sensitive wipes, they come out of the packet easily, are nice and soft and don't rip. A winner alround I think :)

    I'm not the only one then :) After a bit of googling this morning, I see that many people feel the same... but some people LOVE Huggies. Any Huggies lovers in the room?

    I am a fan of the pampers sensitive myself.

    Just thought I'd pop back and say I used the Huggies sensitive recently and they are way better. I still prefer Jackson Reece, but since they're not as readily available, others have to be used some times and Huggies sensitive aren't too bad.

What do you think?
