how often do you use disposable wipes?

i got a great deal on some wipes and sort of fell in love with them on a travel basis only. dont get me wrong i love my cloth but considering it cant "sit" for very long i just use sposies instead.

I use Sposie wipes only in my diaper bag. We go through too many to bring cloth.. but a box of Sams brand lasts us months.

Re: how often do you use disposable wipes?

My son reacts badly to almost all commercial wipes. I only use them in the diaper bag.
The only kind that doesn't give him a bad rash is Safeway's Mom2Mom brand hypoallergenic, unscented, alcohol free version.

I always tell everyone how great these wipes are for sensitive skin. Plus they come out individually, even one-handed. It's been 8 months and I've only used 5 packs (hardly use sposie wipes).

I use sposie wipes and disposable diapers with the toddler I watch each day.. I also use sposie wipes in the diaper bag but cloth otherwise at home.

I use sposie wipes when out only because Dh bought them. I keep a small travel size water spray bottle in my diaper bag with dry wipes. I refill the water bottle when we go out. I just spray the wipes as needed.

Re: how often do you use disposable wipes?

I hate sposie wipes honestly. They just make me mad. I for a while after my newbie was born had a pack of disposable wipes in there and I just couldn't do it. If I'm using cloth I use cloth wipes. I just throw a bunch in a ziploc bag, travel spray bottle of wipe solution if there's no water around. It doesn't matter how long they are in there since I keep them dry.

Re: how often do you use disposable wipes?

I always use sposie wipes. I bought some cloth ones right before DS was born, but they always seemed rougher on his skin than the Pampers sensitive ones. The sposies ones glide better and never seem to irritate him, while he hated the cloth ones (I tried sherpa, flannel and bamboo terry).

ETA: I've hated every other brand or kind of sposie wipes I've tried, though, so maybe I'm just picky.

I only use disposable wipes. I've tried cloth with just about every single concoction out there (even straight water) and she got a rash every time. I can only use pampers sensitive wipes also. No other brand.

We use sposie wipes most of the time. Our cloth wipes have become nose cloths and cloth napkins. I just really prefer the sposie ones.
