hi,
can anyone recommend a good brand for wipes?

thanks,
Eshe

We used Viva paper towels that we wet with water from a squirt bottle. For travel we use Babyganics. We've never needed to use diaper ointment. I don't see the point in using it every time unless the baby has a diaper rash. Petroleum jelly wouldn't let the skin breathe. I think some people use coconut oil for a diaper ointment. It's all natural and I believe it has other beneficial properties.

Try Ya Baby Sensitive Wipes. You can get them on Amazon.com. They're chlorine free, and excellent for sensitive skin.

I use cloth wipes (an old flannel sheet cut down into squares) that I dip in my own wipe solution (1 quart water, 2 tablespoons olive oil, 2 tablespoons Dr. Bronners baby soap; shake/stir to combine). If my baby's bottom starts looking a little pink, I'll use LuSa Organic's Booty Balm; it's nice and gentle and cloth diaper safe.

I use coconut oil for every diaper change to prevent diaper rash instead of diaper ointment. It is natural and safe.

I definitely would not use petroleum jelly. I didn't use anything for every nappy change. If they had a rash or looked a bit irritated I use pawpaw ointment (a non-petroleum based on now I know!) or sudocrem.

I use wash cloths. I would not use petroleum jelly, and definitely not at every change. Air that booty out! Only use creams as needed.
