{diy disposable baby wipes}

Today I am going to give you my recipe for homemade wipes
But before i begin, i wanted to say thank you to everyone who wrote me emails & left comments regarding my last post. I was blown away by the response i got! I am so happy that i was able to encourage some mamas out there with my story. Thank you all so much for your encouragement as well!! 
Things are slowly getting better here, long story short, our boy has some tummy issues. We started taking him to my naturopathic doctor, & we are beginning to understand whats been going on. Hoping to get our little guy fixed up soon! & hoping he starts sleeping longer than 30min- 1 hour at a time.. Will share more as i know more

But anyways, on to the post
We are FINALLY breaking out our cloth diapers for Liam,  ready to start saving money again! & we're finally caught up on regular laundry...after 4 months haha
We saved so much money cloth diapering our daughter, & now, our son is using her diapers. Just goes to show they are worth the initial investment!
Both of our kids have super sensitive skin. Especially on their little bottoms ;) 
So with our daughter. i used cloth wipes and a hypoallergenic bottom spray.
for our son, i wanted to try something else
so i made these! & i love them! 
after ONE day of using them, his little bum rash cleared up & we've been using them ever since
I am most definitely a believer
We all know the health & moisturizing benefits of coconut oil
& if you use a good baby wash or Dr. Bronners, you can't lose!
Try them out for yourself! 
What you need:
A roll of paper towels 
Your favorite ph balanced baby wash or Dr. Bronners soap 
virgin unrefined coconut oil
a container with a lid for the wipes
a big knife
Begin by cutting your paper towel roll in half
Use a cutting board!  I didn't cut on my table, this pic was a fake ;)
Choose the half you want to use & remove the cardboard center
Put the other half somewhere until you're ready to make your next batch
stuff your half roll into chosen container 
Mix 1 Tablespoon coconut oil & 1 Tablespoon baby wash with 1 1/2 cups hot water 
The hot water will help the coconut oil melt
We love Honest co baby wash! It smells so yummy! Plus i trust all the ingredients 
Pour your mixture over the paper towel roll in the container
To use:
Pull from the center of the roll , tear at perforation, replace lid
easy peasy!
You will get a good sized wipe, made with ingredients you trust!

Happy saturday :)
