Most baby wipes are filled with chemicals and perfumes that aren’t good for your babies sensitive skin, especially if they suffer from nappy rash. But there is a solution; you can make your own wipes that are natural and soothing.
What you’ll need:
- 1 cup of hot water
- 1 tablespoon coconut oil
- 1 tablespoon baby wash of choice
- 1 roll of paper towel (good quality works best)
- Remove the cardboard roll from the paper towel and cut the paper towel in half horizontally – making 2 smaller rolls.
- Mix the water, oil and baby wash together until combined well.
- Pour the mixture into your container and add one of the rolls of paper towel.
- Let the paper towels sit and absorb the liquid for an hour.
- Your wipes are ready to use, pull from the middle to start. For travelling you can take some of these in a flatter container or a zip lock bag.
These wipes will contain no alcohol and are super soothing for babies bottoms.
