Cloth Diapering

Cloth wipes

We usually use disposable wipes but DD has a tear on her butthole and the pedi said to just use a warm cloth. I'm wondering if it's possible to make cloth wipes out of old receiving blankets. if so how do you do it?

Re: Cloth wipes

  • I used an old flannel sheet to make my wipes.  I cut them into 8x8 squares and zig zagged the edges so they won't fray.

    This, or if you have a serger that would work also.

  • You can use baby wash cloths, instead, especially if you plan on continuing using disposable wipes after.

    Suddenly my life doesn't seem such a waste,
    It all revolves around you.
  • If you want to continue with cloth wipes, there are some really cute ones on etsy!  I keep mine in an open bin on the changing table, so I got some that match the decor of the nursery.  Using cloth wipes is really easy when you're already CDing.  They go in the same bin (rather than having a pail and a trash can) and can be washed and dried with your dipes.

  • I bought a few yards of cute flannel and made a zillion of them when I was pregnant. I zigzagged the edges and so far they have held up just fine. When I need more I will just use old blankets. They are soft but clean him up really well. I also made a bunch out of old t-shirts. I just cut them into squares, no sewing required because the jersey doesn't fray. The t-shirt ones don't work so well on poop but are fine for wiping him off if he just pees.
