I’ve tried many baby wipes over the past 2 years.
One new option available to Amazon Prime members is Amazon Elements wipes. Amazon Elements is Amazon’s own brand. I’ve only tried the sensitive wipes, but here are a few observations:
- They are thin, as in they are thinner than Pampers Sensitive and Kirkland Signature. (The packaging for Costco wipes have 100 and weigh like a ton compared to any other brand. Pampers Sensitive single packs have about 56 and Amazon has 80 but they weigh almost the same, to give you an idea of how light they are.) I’m placing these under Pampers Softcare and above Up & Up (the Target generic) in the wipe spectrum. When dealing with a dirty diaper, I feel like I need to double layer that first time cleaning because they are so incredibly thin (like I might accidentally touch the poop) but so far, they’ve been very durable and soft.
- They are also not as “wet” as Pampers Sensitive and are probably comparable to Costco wipes in wetness, but the last clump of Elements wipes are really moist.
- They come in a box that includes an awesome dispenser (see the reviews on Amazon raving about them) from which only one wipe (usually) comes out at a time. Every box will have a dispenser which is nice because everyone knows parents with young kids need baby wipes in like every room of the house. (Am I right or am I right?)
- They are only available right now for Prime members so that could be a deal-breaker for some.
I haven’t tried resealing the packaging (like you can with the Pampers, Huggies and Costco brands, all of which have fliptops) but it’s obviously not a deal breaker. It just doesn’t feel like this is a travel option, for those vacations away from home and changing table. Amazon now carries flip-top Elements wipes, an good option for traveling, but make sure you select the flip top size option rather than the tub + refills before you place the order.
Elements is my new wipes brand. Pampers Sensitive and Costco are still my favorites–I just love a thick strong wipe, just both are kind of pricey sometimes. I’ve used Elements now for a few months and have been satisfied overall.
