Six years ago, I was a first time mom with a precious little babe who happened to have some of the most horrendous diaper blow-outs on the daily. Changing Monkey’s diaper was a nightmare of screaming and wailing! Why? Because not only was her poor little bum being bombarded with the acidity from her stank nasty diapers, but the chemicals in the diaper wipes were like rubbing salt into an open wound. Every single time a wipe touched her bum she would recoil with major crocodile tears. And y’all this was when I used the “sensitive” and “natural” wipes from those major baby product companies!* It was truly heartbreaking.
At the time, I decided to use both toilet paper and a warm wet wash cloth to take care of business. It was a decent solution, but it wasn’t that practical for on-the-go jobs. So, I sought out ways to make my own safer and natural disposable wipes! If you happen to have a sweet little who has a super sensitive bum, then these wipes will serve you well. Let’s face it – these wipes are great for all the bums (big and small)! 😉
*Companies have not been named so I won’t get sued.
DIY Diaper Wipes
- 2 1/3 cup warm water
- 3 drops of Young Living Gentle Baby Essential Oil
- 1 box of Kleenex paper hand towels
- 1 empty diaper wipes container or container of your choosing
Open the hand towel box at the BOTTOM and remove the entire stack. Put entire stack of towels into the diaper wipe container. Be sure that they are “right side up”. This will make it easier for them to feed through the lid opening.
Add 2 – 3 drops of Young Living Gentle Baby Essential Oil into the warm water. Here is the hardest part…ready? Stir it and pour over the stack of towels in the container! Now you will need to press down on the stack, flipping it as you pour ensuring that the entire stack is saturated with the water and oil.
Gently pull the top sheet up and through the lid opening.
That’s it! You’re done! I mean, really, how easy was that?! Some may say its not worth it, but I say its not worth putting liquid fire on your precious baby’s bum!
