Baby Wipes

Most of you know that James and I have gone cloth diaper and love it!! . I have decided to take it a step further and make some cloth wipes which makes it easier because we dont have to have a separate container to throw the disposable wipes into, now we can throw them all in one!

Here are the steps I used incase you want to try it:

*Cloth (im sure any kind would work but we had extra terry cloth and it works pretty well, and its cheep if you want to buy some)
*Sewing Machine
*Jar (We used a pickle jar)
*favorite baby soap
*favorite baby oil

Step 1:
cut your cloth into squares mine are roughly 5inx5in. If you get the terry cloth then just cut it into quarters.

Step 2:
Seam up the edges that might fray.

Step 3:
Have your helper layer the cloth slightly on top of each other and roll tightly, as shown above.

Step D:
Mix 2 cups water, 1 T Baby bath and 1 T baby oil in pickle jar. Shake. and put the roll of cloths in. Pull up the starting cloth from the very middle and they come up like regular wipes. Just wash with the diapers.

It might seem like alot of work but, it might have taken me fifteen minutes to cut and sew, with the help of Charli another 2 min to mix the solution and roll up the cloth. Im sure one could use a left over square wipe container and then you wouldn't have to roll the cloth. You dont necessarily have to roll the cloth for the pickle jar either, I just cant get my hand all the way down in it :) I have been testing these out for a few weeks and really like them. Charli doesnt seem to get diaper rash as much anymore either and the crude come off pretty easy. Let me know if you have any ideas on making wipes or anything for a baby.
