What's in your wipes solution?

If you make your own, what's your recipe? If you buy it, where do you order it?

Re: What's in your wipes solution?

I make my own with water and Dr. Bronners castile soap in a peri bottle. Works great and doesn't irritate little guys butt.

Re: What's in your wipes solution?

I use water with a few drops of lavender essential oil. I've also heard of people using a few drops of tea tree as well. I use a peri bottle at the house and have a small reused Dr. Bronner's bottle for the road.
Haven't tried Dr. B's in the solution-- but I love it so maybe I'll give it a go.
IME, plain water works fine, too, especially for delicate newborn skin. I just like the way lavender smells, and it's a natural cleanser. Tea tree has antiseptic properties, as well, I've been told. HTH

Re: What's in your wipes solution?

I make my own soap bits using Natural Glycerin soap with olive oil and Natural lavender & vanilla. ...My LO isnt here yet, but I tested it on my 3 year old and she loved it and loved the smell.

I've also tried the booty cubes (creamsicle is awesome!), but I also make my own with a bit of baby wash and Burt's Bees apricot oil and water. It smells wonderful, and keeps her little bum soft!
