A Guide to Huggies® Diapers and Wipes

When your new baby enters your life, you suddenly realize that there are some things you don’t know and items you need to buy to keep your baby safe, clean, and comfortable. Chief among them are diapers and wipes. There are many Huggies® products to choose from, and this guide is here to help you find those that work at each stage. After all, Huggies diapers and wipes are designed to embrace your child at every moment of growing up. From baby's first hug to their first steps and beyond, Huggies diapers and wipes have your baby covered.

For over 25 years, Huggies® has conducted research on infant skin health. We have a highly experienced and dedicated team of scientists who make sure our products are always safe for baby's skin and designed with that in mind. For this reason, Huggies® diapers are designed on both the inside and the outside to provide gentle protection to babies. Developed for babies' delicate skin, every component of the diaper is highly engineered to keep their skin clean and healthy. With sizes from Nano-Preemie – Step 7, Huggies® is here for baby at every stage of development.

Huggies® designs diapers to address the unique needs of babies' skin by understanding the main causes of diaper rash -- prolonged exposure to irritants in poop, excessive moisture, and friction. Inflammation and rash occur when the integrity of the skin barrier is compromised, making it easier for irritants to penetrate. We take great care to ensure that our diapers are gentle and safe for even the most vulnerable babies.

Huggies® Wipes Are Designed with Skin Health in Mind

Huggies® Wipes are designed to clean the mess from baby’s skin in the diapered area. The type of material used to make the baby wipes impacts its thickness, absorbency, and softness. There are two main components to our baby wipes: the base sheet and the formulation. The base sheet is a disposable, cloth-like material mainly made of wood pulp, polypropylene, polyester, rayon, or combinations of these materials. To pre-moisten wipes, we add ingredients that can aid the cleaning process, helping to keep baby's skin healthy, clean, and comfortable.

The ingredients and materials used to make Huggies® Wipes are carefully selected by a team of scientists and product safety experts to be safe and gentle on baby skin and ensure a low potential for causing irritation or an allergic reaction. Additionally, since baby wipes are often also used by parents to clean their baby’s face and hands, we ensure that our wipes are safe to use around babies’ eyes.

Our manufacturing process is of great importance to us. In order to guarantee that our wipes are safe for use on babies, even premature newborns, we ensure they meet the highest quality and safety guidelines established by scientific organizations and government agencies. Our wipes undergo rigorous microbiological and safety testing, including laboratory and clinical studies.
  • Huggies® Wipes are made with plant-based* base sheets made from wood pulp and polypropylene fibers. You and your baby will love how soft and cushiony the base sheet is thanks to the carefully selected materials.
  • The materials are designed with a thickness to absorb and lock-in urine and poop during the cleaning process, while still being gentle on baby's skin.
  • Huggies® Wipes are specifically designed to protect your hands while cleaning your baby’s skin.
*Huggies® baby wipes are 70%+ plant-based by weight.
