I am a big fan of Seventh Generation's wipes. I've been using them for some time on our newborn daughter, since I'd ordered a case of the refill packages on Amazon before she was even born. They are moist, non-irritating, and free of a lot of the scents and chemicals in so many other wipes out there. And I didn't think I needed all the plastic containers, so I was quite happy with using the refill packages...

My husband and I used them at every diaper change -- which can be 8, 10, even 12 times a day for a new baby. We were going through them so fast that I went online to order another case. Unfortunately, the refills were "currently unavailable" on Amazon, so I ended up ordering the case with the regular packages, in the plastic containers.

Okay, so I still love the wipes, and I still prefer them to anything else out there. But I have two gripes:

First, as already mentioned by another reviewer, it seems so terribly wasteful to have a case of twelve plastic containers. The refill packages are easy to use without the plastic container, so all that plastic is completely unnecessary. Amazon, please re-stock the refills!

Second, my husband and I both observed that the wipes in the plastic containers seem to be less moist than those that come in the refill packages. We were a bit disappointed by this, since the moistness of the wipes is a major appeal of this product. It makes them easy to use and very thorough in cleaning baby's bottom between baths. The wipes still work fine, and we still love them, but there is definitely a difference in their moistness as compared to the refill packages.

A five-star product in three-star packaging equals four stars in my book. I hope to see the refill packs available again soon...

UPDATE: As of late October, Amazon has the refills back in stock! They seem to come and go, so catch 'em while they're here!

They are thicker, can be pulled out with one hand, and less expensive! One of the reviewers said they were dissapointed that they use Polysorbate 20. But if you do some research you'll find that it's a widely used emulsifier, a viscous oily liquid derived from lauric acid. Lauric acid is a common constituent of coconut oil and some berries. Polysorbate 20 is a nonionic surfactant, meaning it has no electrical charge (very important). A surfactant is a wetting (surface active) agent that lowers the water surface tension permitting it to penetrate more easily.

Not a nasty chemical as it sounds. I wouldn't think this company would use a nasty compound anyhow. They take pride in their formulations. I strongly recommend this product and I concur with the reviewer who said that you don't need all the plastic containers, stick with ordering refills...

Hope this helps.

These wipes work great... they are soft and very moist. I was using the Pamper's Sensitive prior to getting these and they were always much drier. The only gripe I have is that I ordered these in bulk and received 12 containers of wipes. I wish I had just ordered the bulk of refills because it is so wasteful to have all of these plastic containers now.

I love the seventh generation products for out daughter. However, I did not mean to order 12 hard plastic boxes of these. If you get the refills (which you can also get on Amazon, just make sure you pay attention), it is a lot less wasteful and takes up a lot less space. Having a baby is so destructive to the environment, I like to try to make the least amount of impact I can. I use these for the really dirty diapers and when we are out and about. At home I just use a warm washcloth. They are soft and work well.

We bought these wipes cause they are environmentally friendly and chlorine free. They certainly are an environmentally safe product but I have my doubts about being alcohol free. It has some stinging effect cause my poor baby would scream everytime I used one of these. Also, they are dryer than competitive brands (earth's best) and so I would end up using twice as much. The wipes also have some distinct (read weird) smell, they certaintly are not frangrance free like they claim. We read some nice reviews about Earth's best chlorine free wipes at [...] so I went & bought a refill pack from Babies-R-Us. Guess what, no more screaming baby at diaper change and I need only 2 wipes now where I used 4-5 of the 7th generation. Also, the earths best is truly frangrance free and my little one is comfortable so guess what our next order for wipes will be.................

We buy everything 7th generation and love the diapers. But these wipes in the box are impossible to get out and they are dry. They are thick enough and good with poops only if I wet them first. I am very surprised to find such a fundamental design flaw with the box as all other wipes seem to have figured this out. Also, the company needs to provide a better supply of refills to Amazon. It's ridiculous that you cannot count on having them available. At this printing they were not available. We may have to switch back to Tushies. At least I can get them out of the box and find refills.

these are the best wipes. I have tried several types of wipes & just knowing they are chemical-free makes me like the the best. they have no scent, which is nice. the only bummer is they are totally smooth, no texture at all, which I guess is a plus of other wipes - but I am able to get even the nastiest of situations cleaned up with these wipes!

p.s. it's best to buy the case that just comes with packs of the REFILLS so you don't get a billion plastic wipes containers too.

It's easy to purchase this pack of 12 baby wipe packages in the plastic boxes, when you really want the pack of 12 REFILL packages. The refill packages, of course, do not come in plastic boxes and are less expensive.

Having said that, the Seventh Generation Baby Wipes are a great product. Our baby is 7 months and has never had a rash of any kind. Just get the refills instead of the space-hogging-environment-harming-giant-more-expensive boxes.

We bought this cause it's cheaper than hXXXies and it comes with individually packed smaller boxes. Compared to hXXXies, it's thinner and less moist. Due to lack of moisture, it's harder to clean baby's sticky stool.

Great product without the harmful chemicals of other wipe brands, but quite dry right out of the package. I added water to make them work better.
