Your favorite cloth wipes...

Hi, I am expecting baby number #2 in 3 weeks and I am trying to build up a cloth wipe stash. I don't know a lot about the different materials and which ones are best.

What are your favorite brands?
What is your favorite type of cloth wipe---material, size, etc...??
Are there certain wipes that work better in the beginning w/ the meconium and sticky poos?? Which ones are best for BF poos?


Thanks for your suggestions!

I love my flannel SMJA wipes. She has a hyena cart.
For the sticky poos, the sherpa ones are great. Mine are from thecalicobaby.com

edit, and I think theyre all 8X8

Mine of course! LOL I'm biased, huh?

Fave materials? For me I prefer flannel/sherpa or flannel/velour. Plain ol flannel doesn't do the trick for us. We like one side to "Grab" the poos & the flannel side just gives a quick once over after cleaning the bum.

HTH

Oh & I like 8 x 8 - generous size & I usually only need one for a messy dipe! I use smaller for the dipe bag sometimes... like 4 x 8. The 4 x 8 size is nice for the wipes warmer though - no folding.

Flannel/velour are my favorite combo - I've gotten them from so many different places, I can't even remember which are which!

I like the flannel velour ones for sticky poo. I also have some BG bamboo ones (quite thin), some Kissaluvs (ok) and some baby wash clothes that I got at the dollar store (my favorite)

Small Wonder Wipes
http://search.ebay.com/_W0QQfgtpZ1QQ...3aMEFSQ3aMESOI

Sherpa/velour!! Soo Yummy!!! My DS still has EBF to peanut butter poo and sherpa/velour are IMO by far the best!! The sherpa is soft but just grabby enough to get him clean and the velour is silky soft and great at getting the last residue. One wipe is all we need even for the messiest change. I’ve got to get more 18 just isn’t enough even washing everyday! We love these wipes for hands and faces too!!
I have flannel/sherpa, flannel/chenille and flannel/velour also. For us the flannel just doesn’t cut it, it’s more for decoration IMO. The chenille is a little rougher than I like for his bum. So those are all used as wash clothes for the bigger kids.

Re: Your favorite cloth wipes...

I like my Kissaluvs terry wipes. They're not cute but they work. The only thing I don't like is how thick and linty they are when they're new. But now that they've been washed a zillion times they're thinner and the lintyness (is that a word?!?) has gone away I really like them.

I like flannel/organic velour, flannel/organic sherpa, 6x6 is fine for us. The flannel has to be a super cute print.
