Wipes for your Newborn?

What kind/brand of wipes are you planning on (or have started) using for your newborn?

It's been 2yrs since I've had a newborn and I totally DON'T remember what we used so I'm wanting to get an idea of what everyone else is using so that I know what to start stocking up on. :o)

I always use either Seventh Generation or Earth's Best.  I try to stay as natural as I can.  Also, the ingredients in the wipies are pretty simiple which I like because then I feel okay washing their faces and hands with them.  Just a personal preference of mine.

We use cloth wipes as well as cloth diapers.  My kids tend to have sensitive skin so we just use plain ole water and a cloth wipe or wash cloth.

i make my own! that way i dont have to worry about the nasty formaldehyde or the alcohol drying out his skin or making a diaper rash worse. plus it saves me a ton of money.

How do you make your own and is it cheaper than buying them?

I use flannel wipes.  Then I have a spray bottle with 2 cups water, 1 tsp johnson's baby wash and 1/2 tsp baby oil.

We buy the Kirkland (Costco brand) wipes for Elijah; the Huggies seemed to irritate his skin a bit.. I just didn't know if it would be ok to use on a newborn or not as they tend to have more sensitive skin than a 2yr old.

 I have always been a pampers one.  I use pampers sensitive for like the first two weeks, then go to the regular pampers after.
