Cloth Diapering and BEYOND..............

I recently had lunch with a friend who is newly pregnant and she started to ask me questions about cloth diapering. Once we went round and round about the diapers, I realized there was so much more to tell her. There is more to cloth diapering then just the diapers and a good subject to bring up and start with is cloth wipes because you will use wipes quite often as well. There are many cloth wipes out there to purchase, but I got about a ga-zillion of those mini baby wash cloths at my baby showers so I use those. They are just the right texture to wipe and still be soft on the skin. I have heard and read of many "solutions" to make for the wipes, but take this from me.... not necessary and in fact can seriously irritate the babe's skin. I use warm tap water or a little baby oil if necessary and my LO who has slightly sensitive skin has never had a diaper rash or redness (well, there was one time I fed her papaya) down there. The wipes just get thrown in the wash with the diapers.

I hope this helps you on your journey to cloth diapering!

  1. I've never been sure on cloth wipes. I know for a while we're planning on sticking with disposable wipes, if only because I can only force so much change on my husband at one time, lol.
