I was thinking I would use distilled water with a few drops of essential oil like lavender and/or tea tree. I am also wondering if it would be ridiculous to add an herbal infusion. But I know that there are lots of different ideas and schools of thought and I would love to hear your thoughts and what you did!!
I use pockets and the soap and essential oils do not end up making my diapes repel. I have no build up issues from it, just fyi.
DS, 10/07. Allergies: peanut, egg, wheat. We've added dairy back in. And taken it back out again. It causes sandpaper skin with itchy patches and thrashing during sleep. Due w/ #2 late April, 2012.
Wife to my best friend and love of my life
I've really found plain water to work the best. I just pat dry and she's fine.
Mama to DS (6/07) , DD (6/09) , and DD (07/12) ..
We are still working through the disposable wipes I recieved at my baby showers. We use those when we're out. I have a while yet to consider what I'll do when they're gone, but so far I've decided on a small spray bottle with the same solution in it.
I love that some mamas make their own. I might try that one day. It seems plain water would work fine too! I might try that too, but darn this wash smells so good!
Happily married, busy mom to a houseful :-)
Expecting again early Oct 2014!
