    Default Cloth baby wipes

    I use the thin face washers from Kmart. They are in the baby section and work fantastically!

    I make up my own solution of a squirt or two of baby wash, some baby oil ( no Johnson's!)& a couple of drops of teatree oil.

    I use cheap baby face washers from Kmart with plain water. I wash them in cold water with soap nuts and hang in full sun.

    Our change table is in our main bathroom next to the sink so our dry cloth wipes are stored next to the table and we just wet it with water as needed.

    I have tried a few different types of wipes - probably the cheapest option is to buy some cotton flannel material and cut it up into squares and maybe even hem it for loose threads. My favourite though is itti bitty - not the rainbow coloured ones but the ones that are white on one side. I think they should just make them all white so you know that all the poop is well and truly gone! I only ever purchased them when there was a sale on.

    Face washers and water
    . I have itti bitti wipes as well, but think face washers are better on pooey bottoms.

    Small facewashers wet with water and a cut up old flannel sheet to dry off.

    We have no sink/tap upstairs where all of our living area is so we keep a cheap electric jug and a bucket next to the change table. Doesn't really matter now that it's summer but when she was little in winter we'd flick the kettle on for 20 seconds and it'd warm the water up.
