anyone care to suggest some wahm's that make wipes? I don't have a lot to spend and I need to start my stash of wipes for the new baby.... I'd rather the money go to a wahm.... nothing fancy... perhaps just flannel...

I bought mine from SMJAE on ebay, but I don't think she sells on ebay anymore. I think she might sell on hyena cart.<br><br>
I bought some flannel ones, some terry ones, and some sherpa ones. They are all really good quality and the price was extremely reasonable.

I wondered if they would be easy to make. Buy flannel. cut into pieces. sew edges so they don't unravel. Depends if you have the time to do it or not. Then you could find some bargain flannel to make it cheaper, or cute prints to make them more fun. Just an idea, I know that's not what you asked for.<br><br>

Make your own. Definitely.<br>
You don't even need to buy flannel. You will probably get many receiving blankets that are too small anyways... Cut them up! Do you have some Old sheets? T-Shirts? towels? you can use that too.<br>
Or look for bargain on baby washcloths. Even dollar stores have them.

I agree with the PP about using baby wash cloths. We bought a bunch at Babies r us with my 1st, and we will be using the same ones for #2 due in october. I think I had one that was sent as a sample when i ordered some dipes, but didn't like it any better than the wash cloths.

I second that--I just cut up an old cotton jersey sheet into little wipe-sized pieces. No need to hem (good thing, 'cause I can't sew to save my life) and now I have about a zillion wipes. And they are nice and soft, too. Old t-shirts would serve the same purpose.<br><br>
I was using old washcloths before, but some of them were a little rough for my ds's tender heiny.

baby wash cloths, cut up sheets, cut up baby towels = the cheapest way to wipe your baby's bum with cloth. i'd say spend your $$ elsewhere.

I use old tee-shirts, old receiving blankets, and I sometimes even buy big packages of white washcloths at the dollar store. Those work really well for blowout type poops.

I like the sewed ones the best, although I sell quite a few so I guess I'm biased. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> Single layers are not thick enough for me, and I dont like the thick edging around the baby washcloth ones.<br><br>
My favorites are 8x8 flannel.

thanks for the replies!<br>
I ended up buying some flannel ones from SMJAE on ebay, actually!! (so she DOES sell there still! and she was REALLY nice...and they're REALLY cute!) Got 24 for $9.99...<br><br>
I can't sew to save my life either and have no sewing machine or serger or anything.... so making wipes is beyond my capabilities! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br><br>
With my dh it takes things like specially made wipes to get him to be on the boat.... He looked at me like I had 800 heads when I said we were going to use cloth wipes at home! But he liked the ones he saw that I bought on ebay.... So I figure if THAT gets him to agree to use them at home, too, then I'm all for it!<br><br>
:) For extras (and for when I am doing the changes, I'll probably just cut up some old receiving blankets as you all have suggested because I have what seems like a few thousand of them! LOL)

I bought some a few weeks ago from the Kissaluv's outlet. 50 wipes for $25 and they're great. I could have used a friend's machine and made them but for $25 I'd rather save the effort <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink">
