Thanks to Angela for this Frugal Baby Tip!
I use mostly disposable wipes, that I just toss in with the dirty diapers
and wash then reuse (2-4x's before they need to be tossed). The poopy ones usually get flushed, though.
As for re-useable wipes I had some flannel I cut up into nice hand sized rectangles and just zig-zaged the edges... Definitly not the prettiest, but they do the job.
I tried a few wipes solutions (homemade) and that seemed like way too much work.... So, for the most part, I wet them with plain water, or use them dry.
The dry wipes really do work when I'm dealing with some.. uh.. runny poopies, and a healthy bum. I definitly wouldn't suggest it if you're dealing with a rashy or otherwise irritated bum.
The flannel I used came from various sources. A pair of adult PJ's, some
scrap material, and some that was on sale... but most is recycled. So if you
want to make some I would highly suggest looking in your linen closet or
drawers for clothing/sheets that are soft and ou feel you'll not miss.
