I use soap and warm water. My son LOVES to wash his hands. We do NOT use antibacterial soap. As for face, we wash his face during bath time but after a messy meal/snack we do damp paper towel then wash hands. We never used pacifiers but once again I would just use soap and water (non-antibacterial).

I've never even heard of pacifier wipes. We just used soap and water, same with bottles and sippy cups. Soap and water on hands. If it's just a little sticky mess from a spill or something on his face I just use a baby wipe. I carry baby wipes with me in my purse and use them when we're out on hands, face, clothes...anything that gets dirty.

Thanks guys! Good to know Candy...I actually just through out my baby wipes...can you believe in one of the brands there is propane..uugghh..anyway just ordered some all nautural 3 ingredent biodgradable wipes just for his bottom though and maybe a quick clean up while we are out...I am going to start useing a warm wash cloth for face and mouth he is only 7 months old so cant wash his hands yet but I did practice it with him today..so cute! As for pacifiers I love the wipes for when we are out and I am going to get some natural soap for while at home!

You can make wipes to. You can use a bath cloth in a plastic bag with vinger on it. Vinger is a natural disinfectant.

I also just do soap & water. I put a dab of soap on my hands & then put it onto his, scrub, and then rinse with water. After he eats, I wet a washcloth or paper towel & wipe off the gunk. :) He doesn't use a paci & never has, so I'm not sure what's best for that.

I use the natural wipes for quick clean ups but otherwise I just use soap and water. My 2 year old loves to "make bubbles" with the soap on his hands.
