Lets face it, baby stuff is expensive.
And there’s a whole bunch of stuff new mums need.
Nappies, wipes, creams, more nappies, wipes, and creams…
So why not make your own home made baby wipes?
They don’t contain alcohol and they are super-soothing for those delicate areas, especially if you’re dealing with a diaper rash.
They’re cheap and easy to make and way better for your chubby baby’s bottom than the store-bought wipes…
When I had Zander this past winter, a friend brought over some homemade baby wipes. I loved them! How did I NOT know about homemade baby wipes before my 4th child?! I was shocked.
Not only are they cheap and easy to make…they are also waaay better for your chubby baby’s bottom than the store-bought wipes.
What you need
Remove the cardboard roll inside the paper towels and cut the remaining paper towels in half. (as noted below by Amber, you can leave the roll in there and remove it as the final step…which ever works best for you)
Mix the baby wash, oil, & hot water around to make sure the wash and oil are evenly distributed.
Pour the mixture into your wipes container.
Add the cut paper towels and let sit for about an hour until all the liquid spreads throughout the paper towels.
Pull wipes from center.
To make them more travel-friendly, I take a hunk out and put them in a quart-size ziploc.
It’s unbelievably easy! And I simply love this particular brand of baby wash which I bought from Target.
Best part about these…they do not contain alcohol and they are super-soothing for those delicate areas, especially if you’re dealing with a diaper rash. Just make sure you get the right size Bounty. I bought rolls that were too big once and I couldn’t fit them in my container.
