reusable baby wipes
Sep 17, 2010 5:30PM
I remember someone once talking about resuable baby wipes. Does anyone know what they are called?

or you can buy normal washable wipes.
Both available from fillyourpants.com

Cheeky wipes are the best we've found relative to cost. The wet & dry bags are great for going around.
If you want to go with them and get ??5 off your first order just say and i'll send you over a referral code for your ??5 off.

Thanks everyone! For those that use cheeeky wipes does anyone know how essential it is to use the oil in the clean wipes box? Would they be ok just using water. The reason being is that I cant use anything fragranced on my lo which is fine at home using water and cotton wool but more difficult when out and about.

I rarely use the oil! I use the lemon one in the wash sometimes as it smells really good! And you can soak dirty wipes in the oils instead so the box isn't smelly!

you dont need the oil. just the damp wipes. i prefer the flannel cheeky wipes to fleece. i find fleece wipes far too absorbant to make a good bum cleaner.

hi everyone, new here but desperate for advice! My son is 1 month old on Tuesday and has been bottle feeding for the past 2 weeks. He has had problems since. He is extremely irritable, I’m sure my Son doesn’t have anytime while awake not crying, he cries ALL the time and I try EVERYTHING with no success. I have been to the hospital and doctors and they are so very unhelpful, they just tell me he has colic and basically I have to deal with it. I am almost certain, and the hospital also said, he has reflux (silent) as he rarely spits up but it is getting far worse and he is becoming more and more irritable, coughing after feeds and in between and starting to refuse feeds, scream, want them, take them and scream again. He has had Carobel from the hospital as they didn’t want to give Gaviscon due to chance of constipation, but it did absolutely nothing for him. He is now simply on infacol but has trouble pooing, which causes him distress, but is very runny. I guess i am I am desperately looking for advice on what to do, as it is increasingly hard with a baby that cries all day and won’t sleep or settle due to milk coming back up. I feel like I’m missing something and not giving him what he needs? HE IS SUCH A HUNGRY BABY! I feed him, change his nappy, cuddle him, sing to him, wind him, put him in swinger, walk round house, car - I am lost! Health visitor has done a referral to dietician however who knows how long this will take! Dad is lactose intolerant. Also, how much does your baby eat, or did eat at 1 month? Mine wants food every 1.5/2 hours! Please help!
