Plain water mostly. Sometimes weak chamomile tea or a tiny drop lavender oil. If i need more cleaning than that, then some One Village Neem Soap. Again, very diluted.

I just received my order from bellabottoms.com and I wanted to pass along just how much I LOVE her wipes. I bought the terry wipes, 6 for $4.50 and I'm going to have to go back and buy some more! I have one in my lunch box, one at my kitchen sink for wiping a 3 yr old's hands and face (he didn't wince), and the rest for my baby for now.

Thanks for all the input ladies. I have used water, baby soap,and baby oil. I just got California Baby diaper spray and it seems to be very nice.

I use the following solution and have never had trouble with diaper rash or any other issues. I pre-moisten my wipes (cut up T-shirts and flannel shirts) and keep them in a Sterilite container with snap down lid. I have a bigger container by the changing table at home and a smaller one for the diaper bag.

3 cups water
3 Tbls Dr. Bronner's Baby Castile Soap
3 Tbls baby oil
A few drops of tea tree oil
A couple drops of lavender (just to smell nice... pick your favorite essential oil)

I use a mini wet bag to carry moistened/wet cloth wipes for on the go. I just use water.

Quoting Nicole:

The soulution I use is:
2 c water, distilled
2 tbsp baby wash( what you normally use)
2 tbsp baby oil( what you normally use)
mix them together and put in a spray bottle.

We use a small purse size spray bottle for going out. I like this recipe since it already uses products we have on hand. I aso use this recipe with a half roll of good quality paper towels to make my own wipes!


 



I use this too. I make it up in a large quantity (about 2 qt) and pour it into our wipes container along with wipes so they're ready to use.

I just use water, and have a zippable waterproof bag to carry them in when I'm out - however, I do use commercial wipes too....once he got past 6 months, his skin seemed to be less sensitive and I can use them more now.

I use a solution I found on punkinbutt.com. I make my own and it goes a long way. It's aloe juice, distilled water, grapefruit seed extract, and lavendar. About twice a week I premoisten my washclothes and keep them in a container. I throw a couple in a small container in my diaper bag as needed.

I am currently using the Bum Genius bottom spray. I like it--smells nice and the wipes glide right along her little bottom.

Water in a spray bottle with a shoosh of apricot kernel oil. (same oil used for infant massage) Water alone gave our kiddo a raw butt. The AKO helps the wipe slide a bit. I have a travel size spray bottle with a little lid that goes in the diaper bag for out.

I had bought Pumpkin Booty wipes bits online (saw reviews on Diaperpin.com for them) and they spent about $20 on them last May and am just now running out! I got some flannel and cut squares and sewed them together to make wipes, and use the squirt bottle from the hospital to keep the solution in and just wet the wipes as I go along. I also put a drop of tea tree oil in the bottle because I read that it keeps it fresher longer and keeps bacteria from growing in the water, plus helps keep rashes away.
I recently started using Dr Bronner's Hemp Castile Oil Soap diluted for my wipes. A few drops in the squirt bottle of water and it smells nice and light and seems to be nicer to wipe with (smoother gliding?) than just plain water.
If you want to just try it out, Target has a one-ounce sample size for $1.99 which goes a LONG way. They had the Peppermint and Lavender scents, but I went for the Lavender since I figured peppermint might not feel so pleasant down there!

I buy a California Baby brand diaper wash, it comes in a spray bottle and i keep two, one for concentrated and the other i dilute. My baby has no problem getting his butt sprayed and i wipe it off with my cloth wipes. I made my wipes out of old receiving blankets and old fleece sheets. These wipe have lasted forever and are washed in the machine no problem. (=

I have a spray bottle of water with a tiny little bit of burt's bees baby shampoo and baby oil, and a couple drops of tea tree oil. I spray that on to my cloth wipes (I have some flannel ones and some bumgenius ones) and then warm it up in my hands for a second before I use it. I dump the water and refill every couple of days... may have to do it more often in the summer?

I use a diaper lotion from www.cottonbabies.com it's amazing and have no trouble with diaper rash. I keep a bottle of it by my changer and one in the diaper bag. I use dry reusable wipes in the diaper bag and just spray my baby and wipe clean. For the house I use a wipe warmer with my wipes soaked in plain water and just spray my baby and wipe clean. It works really well!

We just have a container of water sitting at the end of the change table. I've read of some recipes that use chamomile tea and tea tree oil, but figure he can't have a reaction to water. I have a packet of disposable wipes in the nappy bag, but sometimes will take along pre-wetted wipes in a zip lock bag. I like the squirt bottle. Will have to keep an eye out for one.

I just use plain water. I keep it in a small squirt bottle that I got on the travel aisle at Target - just be sure to get a squirt bottle, not a spray bottle. They are small enough that I can fit one in my diaper bag, too. I keep that one in a ziploc bag just in care of leaks, but haven't had any problems. I have just discovered California Baby Diaper Area Spray. I like it a lot - very clean smelling and gets her diaper area clean after BMs. I clean her well first, then spray it on and wipe dry.

I use Monkey Doodlez wipe cubes.  They are SLS Free and work well.  You just dissolve them in 2 cups of water and add to your wipes.  I use it with our wipe warmer and find it works great.  It smells good and we have not really had any problem with rashes.



Hope this helps.

Warm water, the very best way to prevent diaper rash. No need for chemicals. Only problem is it is hard to bring with you when out, so I just use disposable wipes then.

I would be interested in hearing this too. I was just thinking this today.  I have seen a lot of different ones.
