Does anyone make their own diaper solution? If so what do you use?
Do you by bits from someone? or do you make your own soap bits?
In the past I used water and a small about of baby wash but was wondering what others use.

I started out using water with a couple drops of tea tree and a couple drops of lavendar with cloth wipes, but then I went to just wetting the wipes with warm water as needed. It saved me the trouble of making any kind of solution and wasn't any more trouble.

They sell little cubes at Sweetheart Diapers. Just got a sample. Not sure what I'm going to do, use them, make own or just use water. I'm thinking a plain misting bottle with water or maybe a cube in it to spray on wipes as needed will work?

I've made home-made disposable wipes so I'm sure the same solution could be used in a spray bottle with re-usable wipes. Water, baby wash, tea tree oil, baby oil, lavender - if desired.

ETA: I meant to say grape seed oil, not baby oil. lol. Grape seed doesn't clog pores and is great for baby's skin. You only need a few drops. Just a few drops of baby wash, tea tree oil, lavendar too.

I just ordered some stuff online from sogreenbaby called Punkin Booty Liquid Concentrate. They have cubes to disolve as well but this is a liquid - you add a couple drops to your spray bottle or container of wipes. I got the unscented and may add a drop of lavender too since I have a bottle but they also have some other natural neat scents. For now, I want to make it as easy as possible for the transition to cloth so I'm trying this.

I tried the bits from Sweetheart a few times, but DS was so rashy that he did better with plain water. They smelled nice and made it a lot smoother of a swipe (how gross is that description LOL) if they hadn't irritated his butt, I'd have likely kept on using them.

Just fyi, I didn't use any special wipes either. I bought a few "fancier" cloth wipes when I bought some diapers, but then I just bought baby washcloths and used those. They were super cheap and worked just as well as the fancier cloth wipes.

I used water with a little bit of her baby body wash mixed in. She had really sensitive skin and eczema and just about everything scented gave her a rash.

I've only ever used water and touch the washrag to a bar of soap. I only ever changed next to a sink tjpugh so it was easy that way
