Cloth Baby Wipes 101

Pinterest Image for Baby Wipes

We use cloth diapers for Cora so naturally we make our own cloth baby wipes as well.  If we used disposable wipes then a second diaper pail would be needed – not efficient.  With cloth wipes you can just throw them in the diaper pail with the cloth diapers to be washed at the same time.

I love using cloth wipes.  The wipes are warm, durable, and with one wipe you can easily clean the dirtiest of bums.

That being said when we go out of the house I do have disposable wipes in my diaper bag but I still use cloth diapers.

I am able to fit 15 wipes at a time in my warmer.  I could fit 20 but then I have to latch down the sides of the wipe warmer for the top to stay closed.  If you use a different warmer the amount of wipes you can fit will vary.

Below is the easiest way I have found to make cloth wipes.  One container lasts for 2-3 days.  *Remember – you don’t need to wipe if there is only urine in the diaper*
