There are so many great products on the market for babies and newborns these days, and while I think many of them are useless gadgets, there is one item that I actually found quite helpful, and that is the Munchkin Warm Glow Wipe Warmer.
My son-in-law purchased the Munchkin Warm Glow Wipe Warmer at our local Target store, and it was on sale for $22.00. The unit is rectangular shaped, and is slightly bigger than a large size of baby wipes. This tool has been great for us, especially during those late night diaper changes, because my grand daughter would always start crying during her diaper changes. She hates to be undressed, she hates bath time, and she hates diaper changes.
To be honest, I don’t think I would enjoy being undressed and cleaned off with a cold, wet wipe either! Using the Munchkin Warm Glow Wipe Warmer is easy. You remove baby wipes from the existing container and place them in the Munchkin Warm Glow Wipe Warmer. The flip lid opens and wipes are threaded through the top, just like the containers that the wipes come in.
The wipes are warmed from the top down, to help prevent “browning”. The unit gets warm at the top, but stays cool on the bottom, which is great because I was afraid I needed to be careful where I placed this wipe warmer. Because the bottom stays cool, I can place it just about anywhere, as long as you have a power source near by. It comes with its own AC adaptor power supply, and runs on low voltage for safety purposes.
There is an oval shaped lighted button that us the on and off switch, and below this button is a large clear, purple colored half oval that glows. This purple night light is also clear, and shows you how many wipes are left in the container. The night light will shut itself off after ten minutes. The Munchkin Warm Glow Wipe Warmer can hold as many as 100 wipes at a time, and you can fit standard wipes of all sizes.
The Munchkin Warm Glow Wipe Warmer assures you that your diaper wipes will always be warm, and using these has made our diaper changing experiences a much more pleasant one. When my son-in-law picked this up at the store I honestly felt like he was wasting his money, but he felt it would be a worthwhile investment since they were going to be changing diapers for the next two years. I have to agree, the unit is indeed a very nice tool to have around, and it doesn’t take up much more room than a standard 100 count container of diaper wipes.
The Munchkin Warm Glow Wipe Warmer comes with a one year warranty and is made by Munchkin, Inc.
