I have made baby wipes before. Home made works great.

Blessings,
Dawn

I recently started using baby washcloths in plain water instead of buying baby wipes because the wipes have gotten so expensive. The tiny washcloths work really well and then of course they are re-usable after washing them.

I've been making these since my teenager was a baby and still do. I used to have a plastic container that Crisco had come in. Then coffee started coming in the large round plastic containers, so I use those. The lids get loose after awhile, so I just use a new lid. That way you don't have to buy a container and save the environment/money even more. I use the basic Viva brand because they are strong enough not to tear. I got my recipe from right here on Family Corner. 2 Cups hot water, 2 Tbsp baby oil, 2 Tbsp baby shampoo.

For times when someone did a really bad number... I'd use a flannelette diaper to take care of the cleanup. Using a full-size cotton diaper made for a quick and efficient cleanup.

I had one child who would explode and we'd have full clothing changes about once a day. A soaking bucket worked for that one! And another bath in the tub. We learned to use the shower early on too.

Oh, Ellen, I remember explosive movements in my house, too, and sometimes the only way to change the child cleanly, was to stand them inside the bathtub, drop their diapers, and bath them from the waist down!

goodness, yes, potty training earlier is a wise move in this case!

I couldn't agree with you more... that, or teach them how to change (and care for) their own diapers!
