***closed***Converting to this whole cloth thing has seriously messed up my diapering mojo, some ways good some ways bad. It would be great if I were rich and could just buy everything I needed and wanted all in one shot. Then the mojo wouldn’t be messed with. Alas I’m not rich, and that’s ok. I can tell you, it seems almost defeatist to use cloth diapers and disposable wipes. I mean the wipes do their job whether you throw them away or toss em in the bag with the dirty diapers. BUT when using disposable diapers you just wrap the nasty wipes up with the nasty diaper and throw away, but what do you do with the wipes when you are using cloth? They have to be thrown away and set somewhere while you are wiping. THAT is annoying!
So I started searching, I found lots of cool wipes, cute prints. But I had a hard time, I thought why would you even buy a “wipe” why not just use a washcloth? It seems good enough. I hadn’t been sold on the whole cloth wipe thing. I found Wee Expressions, Lauren makes super adorable diapers and wipes and all sorts of other things. When she offered me a set of wipes to review I decided I certainly would try them. She sent me VERY quickly some lovely wipes. I was so excited to open the package that I forgot to take a picture of it! It was nicely wrapped in tissue and had a cute bow tied around it =o)
They had such cute prints on the flannel, but my first thought honestly was “eh…I could take em or leave em.” But I had a review to do so I washed them, and they fluffed up and I was more excited.
So there I sat, and waited and waited for Ansel to have a poopy diaper. I mean seriously did I just resort to looking forward to changing a poopy diaper?
But about an hour after I got the wipes out of the wash, there it was, I thought about having Brian take pictures but umm well that’s gross. So you’ll just have to take my word for it when I say that the diaper was BAD. A diaper like this is not something one would be excited about normally, but I was ready I just KNEW it was going to take all 3 wipes plus some of my disposables.
So there I was all geared up to use everything in my arsenal, oh my GOSH, I totally only used one wipe. That sucker cleaned up Ansel in no time, something that would have normally taken no less than 15 disposable wipes. ONE wipe holy cow! Ok but I know you are thinking, yeah but which side did she really use. So here is the low down:
I used the terry side for the majority of the mess, then I used the oh so soft flannel to do the final wipe over. It made clean up super easy and the best part in my book? I just tossed it in the bag with the diaper!
The wipes are 7x7 square, cute flannel print on one side, terry on the other.
She sells these at her etsy store as a set of 6 for $5.00
When folded in half you can squeeze 3 of these into a hard travel wipes case.
They do their job!
nice and thick keeps your hands clean and cleans up the messes
easy cheesy to deal with dirty wipes
One does the job of 15 disposable
Doubles as a wash cloth
Lauren is very personable and excited about what she does. She answered all my questions.
I could do with maybe some softer terry, like micro terry or something.
3 isn't enough for a rotation, but she sells them in sets of 6 so that's a little better.
So Lauren is offering a 3 wipe set in your choice of boy or girl print!
