I bought a package of Pampers' "Newborn Swaddlers" for a shower gift for a friend. They were really cute - even had the cut out for the umbilical cord - until I noticed the diapers themselves (not the wipes) had alcohol in them! Has anyone noticed this? I took them back, thinking surely that isn't good for little baby's bottom! Much less the umbilical cord area. In the end I bought some alcohol-free wipes and thought I'd let the mother decide on diapers.
I tried to find something else in exchange but found that all major brands, with the exception of Huggies, have alcohol in them. There is another ingredient in Huggies that I have never heard of - perhaps it's a substitute for alcohol. No wonder babies get rashes and dry skin - these companies are probably out to get more of your money through their additional products!
Has anyone's child reacted adversely from this? Or is it just a trace ingredient?
