There is nothing better for a parent than a happy rash free baby bum. Baby wipes are a necessary evil. There are many wipes on the market claiming to be natural or organic with a hefty price tag. However, even these tend to contain chemicals that are known skin irritants. The only way to ensure that what you are using is safe and natural is to make it yourself (this is the same rule that is recommended when it comes to cooking!). I started out using Natural Sensitive Baby Wipes but have since switched to homemade wipes and i. love. them. Not only are they exceptionally simple to make, they will save you a couple dollars to boot!
What you need:
A couple notes: If you choose to use coconut oil, you'll need to use warm water so that the oil melts since it's in a solid form at room temperature. I also like to add a couple drops of Calendula Oil to the mix to help soothe any sensitive skin, Wedela has a great one! This batch of wipes I also added a bit of Baby Bum Remedy by Pretty Cosmetics (an amazing holistic skin care line). Also, I have been using Paper towels from Costco, which are extra large so I use a bit extra of everything to make sure all the towels are moist.
This recipe is super versatile too and can be used as wet naps or even make up remover towlettes!
