What Are Dry Baby Wipes?

There’s no shortage of big messes with a little one! If you are a new parent who is beginning to understand how your adorable little darling can become one big old mess within minutes, you will appreciate the power dry baby wipes.

Organic Cotton Dry Wipes


What are Dry Baby Wipes?

Made from 100% cotton, dry wipes are essentially wet wipes without the liquid. They are fragrance free, biodegradable, and perfect for those messy situations, whether it be during mealtimes, diaper changes and more. At Nest Designs, we have created two kinds of dry wipes for you to choose from: Cotton Dry Baby Wipes and Organic Cotton Dry Baby Wipes. Our Organic Cotton Baby Wipes have all the same great features as our regular Cotton Dry Wipes, but are made from 100% organic cotton and are unbleached, perfect for babies and newborns with extra sensitive skin. They also have no additives which can sometimes cause irritation and are unbelievable soft, yet tough enough to complete a touch clean up.

Why use Dry Baby Wipes?

Now picture this scenario, you are having a nice and quiet morning cooing with your two-month-old in your lap, when all of the sudden you hear a loud gurgling followed by the feeling of dampness, You, my friend, may have just experienced your first explosive poop! Fear not, because our dry wipes might just be the solution that alters the how you clean your baby blowout entirely.

One of our Nest employees has been using our organic baby wipes dry, because she found that our biodegradable dry wipes clean poop even better when used dry. Her tried and true thing to do is to spray our favourite DIY solution directly onto her baby’s bum, then wipe up dry – she finds that this uses fewer wipes per diaper change. It means that she can get by with one or two dry wipes vs using five or more of wet wipes for a newborn blowout. In the long run, using dry baby wipes can not only save money and give you peace of mind knowing it better for the environment by using fewer wipes during your cleanups. With dry wipes you know exactly what it is that’s going on your baby’s skin. There are no unknown chemicals in our dry wipes, making them safe for all kinds of delicate baby skin.
