As You Stitch {Baby} - Cloth Wipes and Reusable Nursing Pads

I’ve mentioned a bit in passing that we are using cloth diapers with Lilly. I know, I know, a lot of you who may be unfamiliar with cloth diapering today may be wondering, why? What? Huh? So many questions. If you’re interested, I’ll definitely do a few posts on our experience with cloth diapers, etc.

But this post is not about that. When we started gathering our stash and learning about cloth diapering a baby, I was turned on to cloth wipes by a friend. Something I honestly hadn’t even considered, but was super curious about.

Now, we’d been given a TON of disposable wipes as gifts before Lilly was born, so we’d been using disposable wipes for a while. Then, the fabulous Ali from As You Stitch {Baby} sent me some of her adorable cloth wipes and a few reusable nursing pads to try out.

I am now HOOKED on cloth wipes!

So, I really am LOVING the cloth wipes. I prepped them before I used them and they have only gotten softer. In fact, they get softer every time I wash them (which is A LOT). They haven’t shrunk or warped at all. They really maintain their shape in and out of washings.

All I do is add a little bit of water to them and then place them in the wipe warmer. I am using ONE cloth wipe per diaper change versus like 4-5 disposable wipes per diaper change. They really do the job well! I have a few other brands of cloth wipes that I’ve tried and almost all of them have shrunk or warped and aren’t as effective as Ali’s wipes.

Now, I LOVED her disposable nursing pads when I got them. They prepped well. They’re CRAZY soft and super cute… but my only issue is, TMI, I produce a lot of milk. So, I was leaking through the nursing pads within an hour or two. 馃檨 Gross, I know. But, they are so soft – WAY softer than disposable nursing pads.

So, I’ve actually been using them between me and the disposable nursing pads. So, I put the reusable pad on, then the disposable on top of that. So, that way, I have the soft material against my sensitive areas and then I use the disposable on top of that so I don’t leak through my clothes. Win win! (BTW: These are TOTALLY lady / mom problems that they do NOT tell you about in 8th grade health class).

Anyway. I really LOVE Ali’s shop and LOVE her products.
