Pampers not so sensitive!!!

My 5mth old dd suffers from really red, dry, chapped cheeks which flares up every so often, and I think we may have finally discovered the cause!! I made the mistake of wiping her carrot covered face with a pampers sensitive wipe earlier, and about an hour later her poor little cheeks flared up again !!!
Just wondering if anyone knows of any wipes that are for extra sensitive skin, or suggest an alternative way for getting her grubby little face clean!!!

sounds like your DD is having an allergic reaction (I've always used wipes for everything and not had any reaction like that)

how about just using a washcloth and water for face

and cotton wool and water for bums

I agree with Twiglett. Just a cloth and warm water. Ds1 has quite sensitive skin and I try not to use wipes on his face.

My ds has this reaction if I use wipes on his face if they are anything but Johnsons which seem to be ok. I can use other wipes on the rest of him but his face comes up in a rash within minutes. I mentioned it to the doctor once and she said it was a common allergic reaction to some ingredient beginning with P but I can't remember what it is, Sorry!

Gs has similar problems no matter what wipes I use. Great for bottoms, but if I use one on his face, he comes out in a spotty rash. We bought loads of cheap flannels/washcloths and use them for his face. Even take them out with us.

DD broke out w/ALL wipes. Except ASDA George ones. We make a special trip out to get them for her.
