I did not have one in the begining and wish I did. LO would cry at the middle of the night diaper changes. Maybe he would have cried anyway. I started nuking the wipes in the microwave before each night time change.
I then purchased a wipes warmer eventually. I did not use it in the summertime but have recently started using it again. I think it's worth it. I also don't find that they dry out the wipes, at all.
Everyone I've ever heard from says they're unneccessary. I have one because I was given one as a handmedown, but I wouldn't have bought one.
Our family friends have one and so when I watch their boys I use it, and honestly, the wipe isn't warm anymore by the time it gets to baby's bottom
I had one and never used it. In fact it stayed in the box and I ended up returning it. I don't plan on one for our newest addition either.

I'm a FTM, but I have one on my registry.
I've heard conflicting reviews about them as well. I had a friend who wished she had one, she said she would rub the wipe between her hands at night to warm it, but felt like she was "using it" to clean her hands before cleaning her kid's bum...so she really wished she'd had one as cold wipes shocked the baby and made getting her back to sleep a pain in the ass. Literally. Ha.
I used one and really liked it. I will use it again. The one I had did dry out the last couple of wipes but only a couple. Definately a good gift.
I had 1, 2 actually (1 upstairs, 1 down stairs) and LOVED them! I live in Florida where it never actaully gets that cold, but it's still nice to be able to use a warm wipe on little tushies. My son appreciates them as well, but is fine when we are out with out them.
I had one, and DS cried during changes whether the wipe was warm, lukewarm, or cold. I got rid of it and wished I hadn't wasted the money.
Keep in mind you probably won't necessarily be changing the majority of diapers on the changing table, especially as your child gets older. Unless you plan on carrying the wipe warmer around the house and on visits outside of the house, my opinion is that it's kind of impractical. Save your money!!
They are awesome for night time changes and in the cold months. We stopped using it during the summer and have not returned to it. It was great for the first few months. I probably would not have bought one if it was not gifted to me though.
well thanks for your input ladies! I really appreciate it, I guess I will put one on the reg. and if I get it great!! If not I will not go out of my way to buy. We live in az, and he will be an early spring baby so it will be getting warmer as he gets older :)
