Ok so we are back to the topic of poo. Not a week can go by without a mention. This week’s thing that I love is adult wipes. I discovered them after watching yet another episode of Oprah with Dr. Oz. So without further ado, I give you Dr. Oz’s thoughts on wiping after number 2 (see how I made a little poop poem :))
If you got feces all over your hand, would you wash it off or wipe it with dry toilet paper? Exactly. You’d run over to the sink faster than a sprinter in an Olympic qualifier. Sowhy do we wipe ourselves with dry, sandpaper-like toilet paper after we go to the bathroom? It’s also not the right leaning system because it is irritating and increases the likelihood of getting hemrroids. From You: The Owner’s Manual
I could not agree more. We made a household switch to these last year and my bum has been thanking me ever sense (not literally, that would be weird). Plus after pushing out 2 kids, I need all the help I can get in the preventing hemrroids department (way too much info, I realize, but I know you fellow mommies can feel my pain-maybe literally).
I have tried all the brands, including the store brand, and I can’t tell much difference. I just buy whatever is on sale or I have a coupon for. In a pinch I have even just wet some toilet paper and used that. Just make sure that you are buying flushable wipes and not baby wipes or you will have a big mess (again, literally). So give them a try and your behind will be happier for it. Remember if your bum isn’t happy, ain’t nobody happy (or something like that…)
