Cute, colourful, really handy and sooo soft – that’s what comes to mind when I think of our cloth wipes !
These multipurpose cloth wipes are handmade (in the USA) by Lover of Life Designs, a working-at-home mother. They are made of double-sided 100% flannel cotton which feels so very soft, even after several rounds in the washing machine. They come in packs of 2 diferent sizes (large & small) here at Stoffywelt.de 🙂
That softness of the flannel cotton is not only gentle on our daughter’s bum, but also on hands or face. She is drooling a lot these days, and using a tissue, towel or muslin cloth can be a bit rough on her skin after a while. Since using these cloths wipes on her face she doesn’t seem to fight it so much…I guess the flannel cotton really makes a difference even baby can feel.
I just love how they can be used for so much more than just the simple wash-cloth purpose. The cute, colourful designs seems fascinating to baby’s eye. Our little one loves to play and fiddle with one of those cloths while on the changing table or during a walk when laying in her pram. They are a good distraction & were able to entertain our daughter for several minutes at a time.
I have to admit that our baby girl likes the brightly coloured designs more than the ones with the light or softer hues. She will inspect all of them and tumble them around her tiny hands, but quickly drops the two that only have very little variety of colours.
I just use those not so fascinating ones to wipe her little fingers (when she yet again tried to eat her fist, silly girl ^.^) or tiny nose. And my nose. Yes, you read that right! Why only use them as wash cloth or cloth wipes when they can also be used as handkerchiefs, right?! They not only make our baby girl smile, but me as well! 🙂
How do we store & transport the cloth wipes??
In our wet bag of course! 🙂 Since we love owls and the nursery/baby room is owl themed I’m so excited to use the cloth wipe wet bag by Planet Wise with an owl design – just one of many gorgeous designs!
It’s so cute, right?! The outside is simply cotton, but the inside of the pouch is designed so there are no leaks whatsoever. This means, we not only put our used, damp (from drool and whatnot) cloth wipes inside to take them home for a wash, but also can bring wet cloth wipes with us to use as wash cloth, and the wet bag will keep them wet and ready to use. Of course, you can also put other wet wipes in there to carry with you. I also tend to carry a teething ring or toy with me for our little girl, and like to transport it in this pouch for obvious reasons 😉 The wet bag also has those nifty snaps, so I can fit it even in a small bag or purse if the diaper bag is too full already. Very clever idea there, Planet Wise :
I can honestly say, the cloth wipes are in use every day around here, and I don’t really want to miss them anymore. I’m positively sure they will be used even when our baby turns into a toddler and older (hopefully not for drooling by then, but..you know what I mean ;)…)
