Can sharing baby wipes between babies in a church nursery spread disease? What about diaper changing surfaces that may not be cleaned between kids?
Moist Paper Towels: Wet wipes out of a box can cause a distinct type of diaper rash, it looks like red "parentheses" around the anus, and there really isn't a brand that is totally safe from that. Every time in the past that a baby's treatment with creams failed, removing wet wipes helped, so now I just start by recommending cleaning with moistened paper towels. ...Read more

Variable: Depending on the packaging this could be weeks or days. Those with a way to provide air tight containment can hold their moisture for longer periods. Some lose it as soon as you open the pack/box and dry out over time depending on the humidity. ...Read more
Baby wipes: I usually recommend using wash water and dry wipes for the first 6 weeks. After that period of time, it is safe to use baby wipes but I usually ask parents to use the non fragrance "sensitive" wipes. They are often less irritating. ...Read more

Wipes are not intended to be used this way. You are not cleaning them and you can get bacterial overgrowth on the cups and dishes, not to mention the chemicals you are potentially ingesting.

Yes: Baby wipes are ok to use on newborns (hospitals use baby wipes). One should be sure to wipe gently to avoid abrading the skin. If a rash has developed, the parent should talk with the doctor to see if wipes should be stopped, and perhaps switch to tissue+water for cleaning. ...Read more
Hard to know: "germs" are generally bacteria, which are everywhere and are, for the most part, normal and harmless. Depending upon what the wipes contain they may slightly reduce surface contamination, but there are always millions of organisms left behind. Some feel that children who are allowed to be exposed to these organisms build up better immune responses than those who are overprotected. ...Read more

Need advice on what is the the difference between baby wipes and wetted tissues for wiping your bum?
Components: Propitiatory wipes often contain fragrance & preservatives that can irritate raw skin. Wet tissues will generally not. I often have moms make their own with baby oil, paper towels and a zip lock bag. ...Read more
Two days ago I had rough sex (6 times)between 10pm and 7am. I've noticed now that when I wipe (wet baby wipes unscented)I have skin coming out. Normal?
Here's the "skinny": With such extensive rubbing of the labia during the "rough sex" the epithelial (skin) cells are abraded on the top layer and exfoliate. (come off). When that occurs the dermis (under layer of skin) try to rapidly replace the skin cells that have been removed (epithelialization). This is the normal process of skin replacement. ...Read more
Baby wipes: It is all right to gently use baby wipes on the inner labia of the vaginal wall. You may want to use the sensitive wipes though and do not be aggressive. Also, I do not recommend using wipes inside the vaginal canal. If you are unsure where to use the wipes, speak with your pediatrician. ...Read more

So I'm curious if I ate a mixture of baby wipes and toilet paper, would I have to wipe when it passes?
You're kidding right: This is supposed to be a serious sight and you appear to be asking a silly question. If not, wipe with whatever you choose to use. They haven't printed the sears catalog for years but you could use a magazine if you want to be different. Toilet paper would be culturally correct at least in the us. ...Read more
I get this weird sensation in my anal area I just got to the bathroom cleaned with baby wipes and still itching. It's a feeling like when yougetpinched?
Usually not: Baby wipes are mild soap containing products that usually wipe feces off skin without causing irritation; unless the wipes say they kill bacteria, they usually do not. Disinfectant wipes usually read "do not use on skin" but they kill bacteria. washing hands and giving clean food is all the baby needs. Do not fear salmonella or listeria in normal food products. ...Read more
