Thanks to Paula for this Frugal Baby Tip!
I do what most of the moms who have replied have done...I keep my solution in a squirty bottle (the kind with a sport-top drinking lid, a sprayer drove me nuts). It's just water with a drop of baby soap. I squirt as I go. I don't like my wipes soaking wet, they do a better job of grabbing goop if they are just damp.
I made my own wipes, 2 sided...one side is yummy soft cotton velour, the other side stretch terry. I use the velour side first as it is so soft, and flip it over if I need more surface. I never liked flannel wipes because there is so little nap for grabbing, and they got to rough over time IMHO. Mine are about 7 inches square, serged around the edges.
Cloth wipes are sooo much nicer than commercial wipes. Even when I needed to stop cloth diapering my 3rd because of water issues where we were living I stuck with the cloth wipes because they didn't give him a rash, worked better, and were softer. For travel I just stuff 2 wipes into the packet of cover/diaper and throw in my bag. When it's time for a change I just get the wipe wet (either a sink or my water bottle) then put the whole dirty bundle in a giant ziploc and bring it home.
And it's one less thing I'm buying with the intention of throwing it away after I use it. I hate that. I'm making a bunch of canvas grocery bags, and if I could make reusable garbage bags I would.
