Thanks to Tiffany for this Frugal Baby Tip!

I make my own wipes, and the key for me was SIMPLICITY!! I don't do anything fancy -- I bought a bundle of "utility towels" from the automotive department of my local Wal-mart, then I cut them into 4 X 8 inch squares (I think -- I just measured the wipe box that I had saved to store them in). I serged the edges (they're just one layer thick), and that was it!! It took me one afternoon to make about 48 wipes.

I keep a squirt bottle on the changing table with water and a dash of baby oil & a dash of baby wash in it, then I just squirt it directly on Logan's butt & wipe it off. Hope that helps!!
