Trying to get the Cloth Diapering post out before Lexi woke up, I completely forgot to mention what we’re doing for wipes.
Even before I decided to try cloth diapers, I wanted to use cloth wipes. And they turned out to be easier than I thought. While I plan on trying cloth diapers again in a few months, I know I’ll continue using cloth wipes regadless of our experience with cloth diapers.
For one, it’s really easy to make them. It takes a few minutes each morning to stack up the wipes warmer with rolled up wipes. I make my own solution, recipe for which I found online and it goes something like this:
2 cups of hot water
1 tbs of vinegar (to cut down on yeast)
1tbs of olive oil (for easy clean up)
1-2 drops of tea tree oil ( anti-fungal and anti bacterial)
1/4 of a cup of Aloe (soothing)
You can make a ton of different variations for whatever you need. Like, I had to add vinegar, when Alexis seemed to have gotten a yeasty diaper rash.
I’ve read about people using paper towels pre-soaked in a solution as well, but so far cloth wipes work.
I bought 3 dozen wipes from Etsy and they have been working great. Might need to stock up on more.
Just wanted to throw it out there in case someone is looking to try.
