DIY Baby Wipe Solution | Real Food RN

Today I give you a guest post from one of my amazing fellow foodie bloggers! She is an amazing cook, a mom to a beautiful little girl, a wife, and an essential oil lover (just like me!), and I am proud to call her my friend. She was so gracious to write up a post for me while I am taking time “off” with our latest addition to the family. I need to make this recipe up myself! 

I am so thrilled to be here sharing a recipe with the Real Food RN readers while my friend Kate spends some time with her brand new babe.

Have you ever read the ingredient label on baby wipes? They usually consist of a long list of unpronounceable ingredients. Some of these can even be hazardous to your baby’s health. Even the more natural brands often use preservatives and fragrances.

Luckily, making your own wipe solution is not only healthy, but easy to do and cheaper than the store bought stuff!

Most of the time, we just use a wet cloth wipe to wipe our baby’s bottom. I just get them wet and bring them to the changing station before I bring her over.

But, for those bigger jobs, we love this homemade solution. We keep it in a spray bottle next to our changing station.  We tend to spray the wipe and not the baby’s bottom, as that is more comfortable for her.

I use saponified coconut oil in this recipe. We love how it cleanses and offers anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties, but it is still gentle. I also added essential oils because they smell great!
