I have been using cloth diapers for a year now. I have to say I'm pretty proud of myself because I didn't think I was going to make it very long in the beginning. But I love how I'm helping the environment and my daughter's little bum. What I haven't been doing for a year is using cloth wipes. I know.. *GASP*.
So a couple of weeks ago I decided I was going to make the plunge. No longer would my daughter's bum be wiped with a commercial wipe. But where to start? What brand is the best? What brand to avoid? SO many questions.. So I contacted Bummas about doing a review of their wipes. They came highly recommended to me so I figured why not start there?
I was sent the Wild Ones and can I just say.. SUCH beautiful colors! I was in love as soon as I opened the packaging!
Bummas wipes are 100% Cotton - Woven Velour Terry Cloth milled right here in the USA. The perfect 5” x 7” size that won’t pill, shrink, or fade. Plus they come in a variety of fun and vibrant colors. The Girls .. the cute pinks and purples for that sweet princess in your life! The Boys .. the blues and greens for that special little man in your life! The Wild Ones .. which is a combination of everything and totally beautiful! The Calm Ones.. very earthy and relaxing! And NEW are the Tropical Ones which are bright and colorful!
What I love about Bummas Wipes is the fact that you can use a wet wipe to clean up and then a dry one to help keep rashes away. When I was using commercial wet wipes I always had to let Kylee's bottom dry out before putting on a new diaper. I don't know about you.. but that's the last thing I want to do with a toddler who would rather be off and running. With my Bummas wipes I give the wipe a little spray, clean up her bottom, then use a dry Bummas wipe to make sure her bottom is totally dry before putting on a new diaper. Simple! Then I just toss the wipe and the dirty diaper (after a shake and swirl in the toilet if need be) in the pail. It's so easy! No more taking a diaper to the pail and tossing wipes in the trash!
Storing my wipes and solution is just as simple as it was before my switch to cloth wipes. I keep my clean and dry wipes in an old wipes container and my wipes solution in a spray bottle. I either use a solution or just plain water. Both work equally well. Once I run out of my solution ingredients I will just be using plain water. No more running out to the store when I'm out of wipes!
Bummas wipes are also great for cleaning up messy faces and hands! I keep some in our diaper bag for changes when we're out and about or to wipe up baby girl after she's gotten messy.
So why should you use Bummas wipes? You can help eliminate irritating diaper rash without the use of powders, talcs, and ointments. These wipes are SO soft and so gentle and who doesn't want that for the bottoms of their loved ones? Bummas wipes are GREAT at wiping up and drying off. They come in amazing colors and I personally love something that works AND catches my eye! Plus.. if you don't use Bummas.. you'll be really bummed you're missing out on the best cloth wipe out there! I can't wait to get a couple more sets myself!
