Sorry- does that mean we shouldn't use them? I'm clueless! Can we cut the recieving blankets and just back with velour or etc?

Re: cloth wipes- best material?

I must agree, your AVI is just TOO cute! hehe

As for wipes, I prefer flannel on at least one side. Most of my wipes are flannel/minky (I'm sure I spelled that wrong lol)

And yes I'm sure you can use the receiving blankets....especially if they are flannel (which most are I think) Heck some mama's use them for flats...why not for wipes too! hehe

ETA: I just use plain water for my wipes. I have a wipes tub from when I used disposable wipes and I just fill it up with an inch or two of water every morning and wet the wipes as I need them.

I use flannel/flannel and they work great for us. Maybe I'm just cheap!!!!! But they still work great. LOL

Re: cloth wipes- best material?

I made my own 2 layer wipes using flannel - they turned out really cute and they work great! When we used disposables it would take 4 or 5 wipes to clean up DSís messiest poos but with his flannel wipes it takes just one

For solution I make my own using a recipe off the zany zebra site - the baby shampoo one since I had all the ingredients. I got some soap bits with a dipe I ordered and I actually like my homemade solution more

Re: cloth wipes- best material?

I have been using a cotton/hemp jersey blend that is double layered. I have to tell you it took me some time to get used to. I went from disposable wipes to the cloth ones. I really like them. They wipe up everything and it only takes 1 wipe!

As for solution I have used the zany zebra site that someone posted. One of their basic recipes. I also sometimes use plain old water and BumGenius bottom spray when I am too lazy, to make a new batch of super simple wipe solution.

My fave is flannel/terry, although I have quite a few flannel/minky that I use too

I really like velour/flannel wipes. I use a wipe solution; there are lots of great solutions out there.

Re: cloth wipes- best material?

flannel/terry cloth - The absolute best in gripping poo
flannel/sherpa - Also excellent at gripping poo - DH's favorite
flannel/velour - My favorite because they are so soft. Great for sore bums and the extra clean-up wipe.
flannel/flannel - We use these for hands/faces/noses/clean-up wipes.

It's worth it to try a few! I used to find myself going through my piles to get the wipes I wanted, but now I use them all almost interchangeably and love using cloth wipes. (I used disposable wipes for more than the first year of CDing)
