Homemade Baby Wipes

on January 15, 2014

If you’ve known my son for more than five minutes you know he is half ginger. (My sister actually called him ginger for a few months). I’ve never met anyone with such sensitive skin. Day one home from the hospital we had every cream known to man in his changing station, nothing really (ever) worked.

My good friend and neighbor growing up suggested to make our own wipes to help with our problem. Knowing what we know now we should of just kept doing that indefinitely.

I do believe our little guy is allergic to methylisothiazolinone (MI), a chemical found in commercially manufactured diaper wipes. After doing a little of my own research, I was actually quite concerned with many products I purchase for our family. Click here to read the original study that prompted my digging. One article said methylisothiazolinone is used to desensitized skin, REALLY ?

    Homemade wipes are so easy to make and gentle on the skin.



1/8-1/4 cup baby oil
1/8-1/4 cup baby shampoo
2 cups warms water
1 soft (I use Viva) roll of paper towel
1 container at least half the size of the roll with a lid that fastens tightly

Using a sharp knife, cut the paper towel roll in half and remove the center.
Add liquid to container and place half roll in. Secure lid and flip upside-down for at least 15 minutes.

A once screaming, rolling all around two year old was breathing with the sound of relief upon a bottom cleaning.
I guarantee you and your baby will be happier, healthier and just a little richer.
Not only are paper towels better and softer they are less expensive than regular wipes.
