Lily has been very sensitive to baby wipes, even Huggies and Pampers Sensitive Wipes, so I've done some research and this is our method. We found a recipe for homemade wipes, and her bottom has been amazing since.
- 1 Tbsp Witch Hazel (I use Thayers Rose Petal Witch Hazel with Aloe Vera)
- 1 Tbsp Rose Water (I use whatever I find, and have used 1 tsp of a concentrated rose water)
- 1/2-3/4 Cup Water
- 25 Large or 50 Half Sheets Paper Towel (Cut in 1/4s or 1/2s depending)
Her bottom will still get red on occasion, so using the zinc oxide creams like, Bordeaux's Butt Paste, work nice, but also just a little squirt of Aloe Vera gel works for everyday use. We usually use the zinc oxide paste only when it gets really red, as sometimes the Aloe will sting. Another great tip is a warm baking soda soak, and warm olive oil wipes when the bottom is already red and sore. Since we've started using these, her Bum looks great.
