You Are All Your Baby Needs That First Year Featuring #WaterWipesUSA #ad #IC

When my first child was born, we were poor. Like, selling stuff to pay our bills poor. I remember feeling so guilty that I couldn't afford all the things everyone told us we “needed” and that nearly everything we were using was secondhand. Then came the first time she got sick and, in the midst of the boogers and puking, I remember her looking into my eyes and smiling a big gummy smile. She didn't care about anything but me and the fact that I loved her. It was then that I realized that I was all she would ever need and that made me feel so amazing.

From then on, I would try very hard to ignore those feelings of inadequacies and focus instead on the little moments that felt great. Like snuggling in bed in the morning or splashing in the tub at bath time. Now, with my second baby, I'm enjoying those moments when I'm the center of his world. Like during diaper changes, when he looks at me and smiles. That's why it is so important for me to use WaterWipes since they are chemical free and contain only two ingredients – 99.9% pure Irish water plus 0.1% grapefruit seed extract. Since WaterWipes are a safer, natural option (since they are durable and effective without containing any of the harmful chemicals found in other baby wipes), I can spend that time focusing on him.
