wipes and petroleum jelly

hi,
can anyone recommend a good brand for wipes?
also did anyone use petroleum jelly? our hospital recommended using it instead of diaper ointment on each fresh diaper. what do you think?
thanks,
Eshe

We used Viva paper towels that we wet with water from a squirt bottle. For travel we use Babyganics. We've never needed to use diaper ointment. I don't see the point in using it every time unless the baby has a diaper rash. Petroleum jelly wouldn't let the skin breathe. I think some people use coconut oil for a diaper ointment. It's all natural and I believe it has other beneficial properties.
