Whats the difference between diaper wipes or the kids hand wipes?

Do you use the unscented diaper wipes to wipe their face or hand wipes to wipe their bottom? Whats the difference?

  • I would use diaper wipes on the face, but not hand wipes on the bum. Hand wipes are usually anitbiaterical and contain some alcohol. I would think they would be a little hard on the bum. But to each their own.

  • Depending on the hand wipe, alcohol. If it's an antibacterial hand wipe(like wet ones) then I would check the ingredients before using it on a little one's bottom.

  • to be on the safe side, only use diaper wipes for thier rear. i know wet ones irratated the skin on the bum through a friend of mine. i think the alcohol on the hand wipes hurt. i know if it has alcohol on it, it might burn
