Question Cloth wipes holder for daycare?

My son is 20 months and starting daycare next week so I can look for a job. I have already ok'ed the cloth diapers with them (BG 4.0 pockets) but I'm struggling to figure out if I should send cloth wipes or disposables. I feel bad that I might be inconveniencing them as it is with the cloth diapers, I don't want to throw in some awkward cloth wipe holder situation as well. I use a repurposed sposie wipe container at home, but I'm not sure what would make a good convenient holder for the girls at the daycare center to use. I have a travel wipes case that I use in the diaper bag for short trips, but that will hold maybe 5 cloth wipes tops.

Any advice?

I use an old disposable wipe case in each of the boys' rooms at day care. The teachers do not seem to mind.

A disposable wipes container. You can write their name on it and not be broken hearted if something happens to it.

Cloth wipes in a disposable container- dry. Send along an alcohol dispenser filled with your wipes solution or water (I just use water).

Thanks! Just when I think I had seen everything there is to buy on Amazon...lol

Anyway, my concern with the sposie wipe container is that if I send them wet they could get moldy smelling after a couple days, but if I send them dry and have a separate container for wipe solution or water it might cause them to have to take longer to change him and I am worried about putting them out, ya know?

I have even thought about buying some 4.0's with velcro to send along to the daycare instead of the snap closure ones I already have in order to make it easier for them, but if I buy any more diapers I think my husband will kill me...lol.

Ugh...I am just one of those people who is always worried about people thinking I'm being a PITA...lol

AT my last place I just sent in a pile of dry wipes and a spray bottle. One of the girls used the spray bottle, the other used the sink (I approved either). In a previous place I sent in a wipes container. This place it didn't make since with the setup they had. I sent in the cheap thin wash cloths as wipes. You can fit quite a few in a travel wipes container.

I sent them in a sposie wipes box. They were filled with a wipes solution made with distilled water to prevent mold. The solution also included grape seed extract, a preservative (which also helps prevent yeast rashes).

Thank you guys so much! I think I am gonna send in the cloth wipes in a sposie wipe container premoistened in a solution that inhibits mold and bacteria growth and see how that goes first.
