Thanks to Stephanie for this Frugal Baby Tip!

This probably sounds crazy, but before we started cloth we had boought about 10 packages of Huggies wipes on clearance. Instead of wasting them, We use them for the cloth changes and I actually rinse them out and through them in the wash to reuse. They hold up pretty good for a
few washes.

I did take an old flannel recieving blanket and cut it up into cloth wipes which we have used and they work great too. Single layer is my preference since I'm used to thin disposable wipes. I
would see if you can borrow a surger though for they edges and the flannel tends to fray. I've even used some of the flannel wipes as a liner in the diaper to limit the amount of poopies on the diaper itself. Hope that helps.
