Q? about cloth wipes

I used cloth dipes until my first son was about 9 months old, and have used them about 90% of the time with my 3 month old since he was 4 weeks old....but I've never used cloth wipes.

My 3 month old is BF and he has switched from the seedy poo recently to runny sticky poo, so I'm not sure how I would get it all off with a waschloth(what I've seen many women say they use for wipes), so how exactly do you use cloth wipes for poo...do you use them dry or do you spray them with some water or is there some other method?

Thanks

  • I have a wipy warmer (about $20 from walmart or target) soak them in water with a little bit of baby shampoo and then layer them in the warmer. You don't want them dripping wet when you put them in the warmer, just a little wetter then store bough wipes since they will dry out a little. You can get flannel wipes, from cloth diaper websites or etsy, but honestly i just use baby washcloths.

  • I always wet mine in the sink before I changed the diaper, I never had a hard time getting them clean.

  • With the diaper service we've got, we tried the cloth wipes. It just added too much inconvenience for me to be worth the cost/effort. Commercial wipes are far more environmentally friendly than the disposable diaper, so it really doesn't bother me. We've used cloth diapers on DD since she came home from the hospital (except when on vacation out of town), she's 20 months.
