I LOVE Northern Essense Wipe Solution. I put it in my spray bottle and carry it EVERYWHERE. It's made of all natural ingredients and it is great for sensitive skin

You know, we have a changing pad in the bathroom and so frequently I just use a little warm water, esp. when his tushie is red...otherwise I have used water with some tea tree oil in it and a little lavender oil as well.

HTH!

plain ol' water in a spray bottle is what I use. It's changed everyday to keep it fresh. I've tried solutions with tto and Lavender eo and my son has gotten rashes everytime. Maybe adding a bit of sweet almond oil or jojoba to it but then you'd have to shake that bottle like mad before you spray.

Monkey Sudz Has the best wipe solution I've tried! No TTO or lavendar oils in case babes are sensitive to those. Smells wonderful and cleans great.

I use plain water. If I use anything else she gets a hideous rash. The water works great alone though.

Just plain warm water here too. This might sound gross, but the only thing that keeps DDs skin from getting red and rashy is to not wipe her with any wet cloth if I am changing a pee dipe. I just blot her off with a dry prefold and put her new diaper on. Since I have been doing this she has been rash free.

Thanks mama! My mom & DH are quite bothered by the fact that I usually use plain old warm water. Glad to know I'm not the only one who does that! I need something to appease them for when they do diaper changes! :LOL
