Which would you reccomend for a sensitive skin baby? I'd really like to stop using disposable wipes. But I don't fancy the warm water idea ethier. Maybe I'm weird. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/shy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="innocent">

All I ever use is water. It cleans well without leaving any nasty residue. Then we air dry for a few minutes. That's always their favorite part! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>

I 2nd the warm water. It works just fine. If you really want to use a wipe solution how about a drop or two of dr. bronner's in distilled water. I found that was good for sensitive skin. I sometimes added some aloe and lavender essential oil as well.

You could always use a drop or two of whatever baby soap you clean her with -- if she can have a bath in it, it shouldn't bother her bum, right?<br><br>
I use baby bits myself, but when I was waiting for my order to come in (and my last sample was gone), I boiled water on the stove, squirted a bit of her baby bath in the wipes warmer, poured the water over it, added a drop or two of melaleuca tto, and voila! Add wipes and I'm set for a while. HTH.

I usually use warm water. Mainly becsae i am feeling lazy BUT I often make a solution that smells sooo good. ( I make it when we are going out to "interest" ppl LOL<br><br>
I use a baby wipe container, add a small amount of natural baby soap, 2 drops tto, 2 drops lav oil,<br>
They smell soo good and work great.

I also use warm water on a cloth wipe at home, but when I'm out I keep a bottle of California Baby diaper area spray in my bag. Both of my children have pretty sensitve skin and we use the california baby body wash/shampoo, lotion, diaper creme and sunblock with no problems,. The diaper area spray works great. We also use it on insect bites and scrapes on my older ds.

Plain water works great for us. Most times it's cold not even warm.... <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1"><br><br>

I just use water most of the time. If he's super messy, I will add a drop or two of baby wash. He has eczema so I don't like to use more than water if I don't have to.

I use Cetaphil and water for my wipes solution. I just keep a peri bottle filled with water and about 1 tsp of Cetaphil in a basket with my wipes. My redheaded, blue-eyed baby boy has very sensitive skin. We use Cetaphil for baths, too.

I have sensitive skin myself and use cetaphil on my face (I also just recently noticed that my dermatologist, who has eczema, even uses it to wash her hands), but it never occurred to me to use it on the baby's bum. I think this is a really good idea though! I haven't tried it, but I recently heard that Walgreens (I think it is Walgreens) has a store brand version of cetaphil.

Who you by chance know where I can get TTO online? We don't have a health food store in the close area.
