The Chubs came down with a terrible case of liquid poopy diapers. This lasted for almost 2 weeks. The end result was a horrible yeast infection and diaper rash. Of course the doctors gave him creams to fix it. I hate using chemicals when something natural can work just as well if not better. So... a friend of mine passed along her knowledge to me and I replaced conventional wipes with these. Let me tell you... both rashes were cleared up over night!
To make "Baby Butt Soap":
1 cup water
1 tsp Dr. Bronner's castile soap
5 drops tea tree essential oil
10 drops lavender essential oil
Now I sliced up 3 xl t-shirts to make my wipes and I just wash and reuse them. But if you don't want the hastle of that, just use a sturdy paper towel.
I loooooove these wipes. They are the best wipes I've ever used. Not only are they great for his bottom, but amazing on the budget. The cost of making these wipes is about the same as 2 big boxes of wipes. If I don't use the stuff for anything but wipes, I'll have enough for almost 2 years.
Now, I dont mix the wipes with soap like some people do. I keep a container of soap and a container of clean clothes. And dip the cloths as needed. If I go out, I mix a dozen or so wipes with the mix and I bring a zip lock bag to store the dirties.
Oh yea... if you don't have a stock pile of t-shirts, you can also use baby washcloths. Just remember that you are going to be using these on a very sensitive area. If your child is prone to diaper rash, washcloths may be a little rough.
Happy diaper changing :)
