Has anyone used/made homemade baby wipes?? - Page 2

post #21 of 26

I tried EC with my second. It was going great until I got Mastitis three times in the space of a month. Then the recovery from that.. After wards I just gave up, my husband wasn't supportive anyway so it was to much of a stress/struggle.

Angelorum - thanks for this! I didn't know there was a whole subgenre of books on this subject. Just requested one from my library and will read it with great curiosity. I'm not adamant about potty training early, but I have a 3 year old niece who still isn't potty trained, and I think that's too late, at least for our family. Great to know there are some options!

 

By the way, what's a good size for these wipes? I want to pick up some flannel to give to my mother in law and need to figure out how much material I'll need. Thanks in advance!

Pregnova - just saw your post, too. What an inspiring story! Love it. Will definitely be trying this for our little one, too.

We didn't do EC from birth - though I was interested, DS had a lot of food intolerances and had many messy poops daily - no signals there - it was just not going to work.

Instead we started a "late" version at age 1 (or just before maybe?) Anyway, DS was still out of diapers by 23 months completely - something else to consider if you have a situation like ours.

That's great to hear other's EC success too though :)

Just did a rough measure, looks like I made my wipes about a 7" square.  At that size, folded in half, they fit nicely in a plastic huggies wipe box.  They could be about an inch wider in one dimension and still fit just fine.

Thanks, Angelorum! Now I know how much fabric I'll need . . .
