Baby wipes can be useful for so much more than cleaning babies bottoms. They come in handy for wiping little hands, noses, faces and spills. The downside to baby wipes is that they produce quite a bit of waste. Also, some babies skin is too sensitive for the chemicals in commercial baby wipes. We took some flannel scraps and surged around the edges to create some re-usable baby wipes.
These worked best when coupled with a natural spray. I like Baby Wipe Companion from the Homestead Company . If you are cloth diapering it is just as easy to wash baby wipes right along with the diapers.
