Hey guys,
I'm sure this question has been asked before but time is limited these days. I CD my DS almost full time and its stupid for me not to do cloth wipes. I inherited a ton of babybits from my sis and got for free some, what looks like, homemade fleece wipes from someone on diaperswappers when buying some FBs. Those are super soft but the wipes solution kinda beads up on them and I'd like more. In your opinion, whats the best wipes out there?
And anyone had problems with the baby bits solution causing issues with repelling etc on the FBs? Thanks mamas

I've never been a fan of fleece for wipes. I like flannel with sherpa or velour best.

i like cloth wipes from emibeans.com but i have purchased a few different type/styles from hyena cart, the mdc trading post and diaperswappers. all were made by wahm's.

i like velour/sherpa and flannel/velour combinations. i've never tried babybits... i just used warm water from the sink or spray bottle of water if we were on the go. maybe you just need to use more water or warmer water to help them dissolve better.

cloth wipes are wonderful, so soft and easy. you wont miss disposable wipes.
you can get a cute wipes bag as well as other cd diapering accessories for the diaper bag from happytushies.com.

I like flannel, with terry on the other side, for light scrubbing.

This is what I'm planning to do for a bit. I thought I might order some Kissaluv wipes since the price works out to be comparable ($2.99 for a pack of 5) I chose a bunch of soft baby washcloths from the store and figured I'd use those. I got a small set of organic cotton washcloths to use for bathing only...and I think I'll label those so there is no "cross use" by hubby.

I might get a few packs of the thick terrycloth ones too fro big poo, but mostly I got the very thin light one's for gentile wiping.

i cut up a bunch of old flannel receiving blankets i got as hand-me-downs. i LOVE them. the one thing i would do different is finishing the edges, but i didn't have a sewing machine at the time. they work awesome, even with the slightly frayed edges.

I also use baby washclothes. I just have so many from gifts. I was going to make my own with flannel but decided not to bother since the washclothes work perfectly!
