Favorite baby wipes?

Possibly an odd question - but parents, do you have a favorite brand of baby wipes here? We have spent most of our 4 years in Japan living on an American military base so whilst we bought Japanese brand diapers we usually bought American wipes. I find that the baby wipes I've tried in Japan so far don't have the same textured feel to them like American ones. I'd love to hear about your favorite wipes brand and WHY they're the best choice for you and your little ones! Thanks!

After spending the last several years in the beating heart of Tokyo, I will be spending the next three in the countryside of Japan. I adore this country and all it has to offer - and I'm always learning more and more about life here as I go along! I try to update my blog daily - and my husband also writes on City Cost as "genkidesuka"!

    Hands down: Moony Cashmere wipes. Over the years I tried a number of wipes with my four kids. The Moony Cashmere wipes were the only ones that didn't cause my kids irritation and they very rarely had nappy rash. The only time one of them had nappy rash is when I used another brand for a longer period! When my friend came to visit last year she was using Irish wipes on her boy until she ran out. I gave her the Moony to try and she (and the baby!) loved them, because they are mainly water so you don't have to worry about chemicals. I am a loyal dedicated Moony wipe fan!!

    @Saitama thank you!! That's an awesome recommendation - I love all the points you made about no nappy rash and no chemicals...perfect! Excited to give them a try. Navigating parenthood has been one of the trickiest things about being an expat here!

    If you live near a Costco, Kirkland Baby Wipes hands down. They are big, soft and get all the poo off easily. You can also order them off of Amazon Japan, but they are a bit more expensive.

    Merries baby products are also good and comparatively reasonable too.

What's your recommendation for the best (cheap) restaurant in Osaka?

I have family visiting Osaka and I'm in charge of choosing the eating establishments... I'm not necessarily looking for Osaka-specialty foods (kushikatsu, okonomiyaki, takoyaki, etc.) Just some typical Japanese shokudo-style restaurants that really stand out in your mind. Also, I don't eat red meat so no tonkatsu / yakiniku / etc. please! And preferably near the city center (Osaka/Umeda station or Namba)! Thank you :)

Eating Clean

Are there any dedicated plant-based eatery in and around the Fuchu/Chofu area? Not an establishment that 'also serves' but one that is exclusively plant-based. Found a lovely one in Hachioji but too far away for regular patronage.
