This motherhood gig is a frightfully mucky business isn't it?
Amid those adorable, unequalled highs of the squishy, loving kind you experience as you raise your kiddos, there are many equally disgusting times at the other end of it all - in particular the lower end... and you know I mean like, literally.
And so, a baby wipes review - just how should I approach this?
While I pondered the various angles I could take and set about photographing my Baby Bumkins wipes I was sent for review, other things were a-stir behind my back...
Think babies and toddlers themselves are the only messy part of parenthood?
Baby wipes are something you will be using for many years and in so many ways because kids are grubs all over and at all ages aren't they.
Take this scene for instance: My eight year old Son decided he'd make an unauthorised hot chocolate for the toddler while I was busy with my camera. (Bless 'is 'eart!) She even scored a side of chocolate snowballs and muesli bars the lucky kiddo!
Now I'm all for the cuteness of his thoughtful actions but...
|"Spwash! Spwash! Spwash!"|
I can tell you now, discovering this scene when I returned to my kitchen was, right there, a perfect example of the touching sweetness and energy-obliterating mess, Motherhood entails.
There was no need to think on my angle for this post any further. Click away with that camera Mumma - you've got it nailed!
As I watched the pools of chocolate milk swell on the bench and bleed nicely into her pants, and the measured drip, drip of her obviously yummy milkies, splash from the teaspoon she was slurping the contraband beverage from, it occurred to me that I should get to action right then and there and clean things up pronto before worse things were laid before me.
And so I plonked the pack of Baby Bumkins on the bench, (conveniently located beneath my arm it was), flipped its easy-open lid and began pulling a few wipes for the emergency situation I was facing.
Quickly, the toddler, (ever keen to assist) was on the ball too. Between my own actions, the determination of the toddler at the centre of the scenario to 'help' with the clean-up and the actions of the Baby Bumkins wipes, we had the job mopped up and almost forgotten in no time.
Baby wipes do an excellent job at cleaning the kitchen bench and floor, and stool and so on...
No sooner than that disaster was contained, I caught myself a whiff of something more sinister... My wipes were immediately called to action on their namesake - wiping the little 'bumkin' of my munchkin. Handled it with true class, expertise and convenience they did. They're strong, easy to whip from the packet and pleasantly scented (or unscented if you prefer).
As far as baby wipes go, I'm liking these. You can try them out on your own unique little disasters too. Baby Bumkins Baby Wipes are free of soap, alcohol and MIT. They are dermatologically tested, PH balanced and moisturised with aloe vera and vitamin E to protect young skins. Find Baby Bumkins at your local IGA supermarket.
Baby Bumkins are available in lightly fragranced and fragrance-free options and come in packs of 80 wipes, RRP $3.99. Also available in packs of three for RRP $9.99.
What's the oddest thing you've ever mopped up with a pack of baby wipes?
