With mad max we used cotton wool and water …… yeah right for about 5 seconds. Cotton wall and water is a faff. Ever tried to clean up a poonami with balls of cotton wall -absloute nightmare.
We quickly wised up to using wipes. We choose water wipes as we didnt want to use chemicals on our precious babys bottom. They were like everythig baby related ridiculously expensive. The pack claims to be 99 %water so what could go wrong.
Well for starters as there made with water there really wet…. durr obvious right. Not to this mumma. I made the epic fail of not drying maxs bum every nappy change which resulted in sone pretty nasty nappy rash. It was so bad that it was bleeding, i felt lime the worst mum in the world. I had a few meltdowns over it. The only thing that sorted it out was sudocream and lots of it. Also a tip for you, you need to give the creams tine to work (like a week) i was using a product for a few days then moving on to the next which probably made the rash worse.
This time we used water wipes but only for the first few weeks. Ive found them wayyy to wet this time round. If you squeeze the wipe it will literally drip water. Not good in my opinion.
Weve used asda little angel and aldis sensitive wipes and to be fair they’ve been fine.the brucie binus being that they are a fraction of the price of water wipes.
So there you have it another change for baby number two. By the way using the different wipes doesnt by any way mean Kai’s bum is any less precious to us 🙂
