wipes!

cloth-wipe-solution-recipes.jpg


We'll be attempting cloth diapers for the girls (once we figure out breastfeeding, first things first) and I've been looking for cloth wipe solution recipes, and found Zany Zebra, a great site with lots of info.

I think I'll start with the basic recipe, using burt's bees or earth mama angel baby oil + earth mama angel baby shampoo/body wash + water. Later, I might try the castile soap solution.

We'll be saving a good chunk of money not only on diapers, but on wipes, too. There's a great beginner's tutorial on Simple Organic that got me excited and motivated. You can make wipes from almost anything, including old t-shirts or extra receiving blankets! A perfect project for these last weeks where I'm too uncomfortable to do much of anything.

  1. Great idea! Aren't you just the cutest little hippie mom-to-be. I'm going to pass this post on to my sister who's 8 months along. I'm learning so much through your mama blog and from my sis that by the time John and I have kids, I should be an expert! Yipee!
    Miss you friend! I pray that your last bit of pregnancy goes asap - as smooth as possible and as soon as possible :D.
