I'm expecting my first baby in about 6 weeks and we are all set up to start with CDs (except as soon as he is born so we don't get the gunky black stuff all over the diapers!) Anyway, we are also planning on using cloth wipes but honestly, I'm wondering how much we will end up using (esp when if he has a lot of blow outs). Anyway, a friend of mine who is using disposable wipes said that there is some dissenting opinions about using wipes after a pee diaper-indicating that urine is a disinfectant itself and unless the babe's bum is all wet, you don't need to wipe all the time. She said she still wipes about 3 times a day after a pee diaper. Anyway, if this is all true, I can imagine it would make it easier with cloth wipes. Anyone hear of this? Thanks!
