Huggies is denying claims that their wipes contain glass, but that has not stopped parents from taking to social media to state the contrary.
The Huggies baby wipe scare started last week when several mothers posted photos that show what they allege to be a Huggies baby wipe with glass-like pieces embedded within.
Parents! Please watch this movie entirely! This is my personal video! Huggies Wipes are NOT safe right now for our little ones!

I ask all Mom's to check their Huggies baby wipes. I noticed itching and spots on Liam and thought it was nothing. Then I saw a video about the wipes with glass in them and thought I'd check it out. Sure enough there is something shiny on the wipes and my hands are itchy and stinging. Not a good pic but you can see the sparkle. Please, check your wipes! #huggieswipes #huggies #baby #babies #mom #etsymom
Now many parents are claiming they will never buy Huggies baby wipes again as the risk of wiping a baby with a glass-containing product is far too great.
Others are concerned that shipping conditions may have caused some of the microfibers within the wipes to ‘transmorph’ into a fiberglass-like substance, which would also attribute to the rash and itching many parents are claiming they and their children feel after being exposed to the wipes.
