I've started my diaper stash, but I don't have wipes, yet. I can possible make my own, but I don't know what type of fabric to use. Can I get some recommendations for cloth wipes?

Re: Wipes
flannel is good.

Re: Wipes
I like having flannel on one side and cotton/poly velour on the other side. I also have a few sherpa wipes for super sticky poos, and OBV is nice and soft, but I think the velour works better for poops.

My favorite is Quilter's Nappies on hyenacart

Most of ours are flannel or baby washcloths :goodvibes:

Re: Wipes
I like flannel/velour but I also like terry on one side for the poop.....I also use Quilter's Nappies...they come in adorable patterns and wash real well!!!! I had my sil make me some for my shower and I still use them but they are coming apart so make sure you really serge the seams well or they will come loose in the was JFYI

Re: Wipes
You can get a lot of cute prints in flannel and it's fairly soft. Most mamas like having one side flannel and the other be a more scrubby type material, such as sherpa, terry, or chenille. Others like having velour on one side. Cotton velour stays pretty soft wash after wash.

Re: Wipes
I am loving the wipes from Little Lions, I got a few from them as a sample and they turned out to be great wipes. I just ordered 2 dozen of them because they worked so awesome.

Re: Wipes
I made my own (turned and topstitched) in both flannel/flannel and flannel/terry. We liked the terry at first, but it has since gotten kinda crunchy (from hard water perhaps?) so I only ever use flannel now. If I were starting over, I'd just cut up some old receiving blankets and use those instead of going out and purchasing fabric from Joann's (although I did get good deals when it was on sale and/or in the remnant bins).

Re: Wipes
I'll be the oddball and say I HATE FLANNEL wipes :hide::hide: for me all it did was smear the poo around:thumbsup: So I made sherpa/velour wipes 8x8 in size and I love love love them:thumbsup:
