How To Choose A Wipe Warmer – Buying Guide
When it came time for us to build our list of the best wipe warmers, we wanted to ensure that the wipe warmer reviews were thorough and showed you the exact reasons why we chose this product for our list. To do that, we looked for specific criteria that needed to be met before the product would appear on our list. That criteria included:
Size and Shape
A baby wipe warmer is meant to be a stationary fixture in your child’s room. Even if the warmer is labeled as being portable, it still needs to be plugged in to be operational. Whether you are looking for one to specifically sit in your child’s nursery or looking for one that if you need to, you can easily take with you, make sure to pick on with the size and shape that will work for your needs best.
If you choose to use cloth wipes or prefer to use a specific brand of wipe with your little one, capacity of the wipe warmer could be something to pay attention to. A lot of models have their capacity listed on the packaging, if it isn’t, you can always check the inner compartment to see how many wipes the warmer is going to hold.
An obvious question about using a wipe warmer is how the wipes stay wet? To warm the wipes, it would need to use heat. In newer models of wipe warmers, they are designed with moisture retention systems to help avoid this issue.
For a lot of systems, this means that you may need to add a small amount of water to a sponge at the bottom of the machine. However, there are some that have a reservoir that will spray mist on the wipes to keep them moist automatically.
Wipe warmers can come with many different methods for how they actually warm your baby’s wipes. Many will come with some sort of heating device that can be found on either the top, sides, or bottom of the machine. Then there are some that either radiate heat or use steam to warm the wipes.
The primary purpose of a wipe warmer is to keep your little one’s wipes germ-free and bacteria-free. If a wipe warmer can do this more efficiently than any other on the market, the better. Many models found on shelves today use a light system, using ultraviolet light. Some others however use an additive that can be put into the warming tub to inhibit the growth of mold, as well as mildew-causing bacteria.
Benefits of using a wipe warmer
Many parents to be may not see a wipe warmer as something that they should spend their money on when they have a little one on the way. Which in many cases can be true considering all of the things that they need to buy before their little one arrives. However, a wipe warmer can make a great gift and we wanted to highlight the benefits that can come with parents owning a wipe warmer.
When your little one arrives, their skin hasn’t been touched by anything prior to delivery. When it’s time for you to change their diaper for the first time, it can be a life changing moment for you and for them. Using a cold wipe on their sensitive baby butt could make things uncomfortable for them and make them cry and scream, which at 2 am could be inconvenient. A wipe warmer can help ensure that your little one will have a warm wipe used each and every time, keeping the cold wipe from touching their skin.
Number of wipes
When you’re cleaning up after your child, one of the worst things to have happen is to run out of wipes. Leaving your little one on the changing table while you go and get more is, in almost every situation, a bad idea. Many wipe warmers on the market have a larger capacity than those that come from the store so you can have wipes at every needed moment.
With store bought wipe packages, it can be hard to open them and access the wipes at times. This can be a major problem if your child happens to have created a big mess that needs to be cleaned up. A lot of wipe warmers on the market have an easy access flip top so you can get a wipe when you need one and not have to struggle with any packaging.
On the market today, many of the wipe warmers you may run into will plug into the wall. These models may from time to time come with a night light built into the wipe holder. This addition can be very beneficial, not only to you but to your child as well.
For you, in the dark at the wee hours of the morning, you won’t have to stumble through the darkness to find a wipe for your little one and get them back to be as soon as possible. Once they are in bed, the night light in the holder can give your little one a soothing light to focus on and help them drift off to sleep.
