Miscellaneous - How to clean baby on Shabbos
Submitted by anonymous  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Answer: The wipes contain a cleansing solution absorbed in the fibers that is expressed when one applies pressure on the baby's skin. Since the wipes would not clean as well without the moisture and mild solvent, it is considered to be your intent to cause the liquid to be squeezed out of the fabric on Shabbos, which is an issur d'Oraisa. Leaving the baby dirty is not an option, because it can cause a rash that may become infected. Bathing part of the body in cold water is permitted on Shabbos, but the baby will not like the cold. The ideal solution is to spray water or special solution on the relevant area and then to wipe with a paper towel.
