Question: I was changing my 5 day old sons diaper before and he peed upward and it went all over his face and lips (mouth area). I then used (2) alcohol free baby wipes (Target Brand Up & Up to wipe his lips/mouth/lips and as I wiped he opened his mouth and i wiped his gums a bit. Is the chemicals in the wipe dangerous enough to make my newborn baby sick? I’m very nervous and i don’t wanna make him sick. Should I be worried? I have read scary reviews in google. Please help me.

Hi...I understand your concern. Please be rest assured that this will not make the baby sick. But at the same time I advise you not to use alcohol wipes on the mucous membranes like nostrils and oral cavity here after.

The wipes I used were alcohol free. So there is no concern for my newborn being poisoned by the chemicals? Right?
