I don't feel that it's necessary to make a baby wipes solution- water seems to work just fine. However, it's all about personal preference. For our diaper bag, I keep several cloth wipes in a pocket along w/ a small squirt bottle that closes (so no spills!). When my son has a poopy diaper, I just squirt water on a cloth (or, if I'm near a sink, just wet it in the sink). At home, we just use the bathroom sink to wet a cloth. Once you get used to it, it really becomes second nature & you don't think of it as odd! Seriously, I bet my husband would agree! :)
Basic Wipe Solution
(This recipe can be adapted by changing the type of soap or oil)
1/2 cup baby oil
1/2 cup baby wash
2 cups water
2 tablespoons oil
2 tablespoons baby wash
1 1/2 cups water
Use a spray bottle to wipes.
Use a bottle with a pull-up spout or a flip top. Pour onto wipes before using.
Place the solution into a commercial baby wipes container and dip wipes into the solution.
Place cloth wipes in a commercial baby wipes container and pour wipes solution over wipes.
A commercial baby wipes container can be placed in a wipes warmer to provide cozy warm wipes for baby.
***Don't store solution or wet wipes for a long time because they can become musty and the wet wipes may even grow mildew. Check your solution and wet wipes daily, and mix smaller batches of solution frequently instead of large batches less often to avoid mustiness.
