15 Because Your Baby Can’t Handle Room Temperature
Most parents use baby wipes to clean up any messes that happen in the diaper. And they usually use them straight from the box.

Clearly, nothing feels better than cleaning a dirty diaper with something warm in your hand. Find it on Amazon if you want one for yourself.
