When did you stop doing the whole cotton wool & water thing for cleaning DC's bum/face?

DS is 3m old and me & DH are still largely using cotton wool & water for his nappy changes at home.

Kind of thinking we could just be using wipes all the time now maybe?? Just wondering when any of you stopped using cotton balls?

Would prob still continue with it for cleaning his face tho as I'm not sure what else we'd use - apart from perhaps a face flannel?

At about 2 months. Much more practical when you're out and about too.

If you're worried about them being too harsh, maybe start with the 'sensitive' range. We used the pampers sensitive ones and they were great. Huggies were like wiping with that scratchy toilet paper you used to have at school! They are on offer all the time though. Maybe that's why?!!

About 3 months. We switched to reusable wipes - Cheeky Wipes. I really love them & save us a fortune. Great for DD too as she has eczema.

About a week with DD1, erm never used cotton wool for the next 3.

Hardly any nappy rash or reaction to the wipes.
