DD 6 months, weaning, so messy. I'm using same kind of wipes as I use when changing her nappy... that ok or should I be using ones especially for face and hands, think I saw some advertised in Boots. I keep a pack in the kitchen for easy, quick access. I know I could use a wet cloth kept just for her, but throw-away wipes are so handy....what do you all use? Thanks.

I use the 20p face cloths from Tesco. I have about 20 and just chuck them into a bucket in the kitchen after use.

Leaving all cost/environmental issues aside, I find a wet face cloths clean all that muck off much better than wipes anyway.

yy flannels, they are great

I chuck straight into washign machine after use

the posho 'embossed' wipes you get are just trying to get close to the muck-grabbing qualities of a flannel

Have you ever tried wiping your own face with baby wipes - I think its horrid. I use flannels for the baby and tesco value facial wipes for my toddler.

I just got a couple of packs of cheap flannels from Ikea and use water. We've even taken to using them for our own hands after finger foods. The worst bits, yes I occasionally use a "bottom" wipe, but from a "face only" packet.

I use a flannel and wash it through afterwards with hot water, then put in the washing machine once a week.

Once BB got to about 7.5 months, I started sitting him at the edge of the sink and washing his hands and face with the tap. I only use flannels now if things are really messy!

I use flannels with warm water from the tap, it works better on food (especially greasy things like spag bol)

Or I just chuck him straight in the sink/bath if it's really bad grin

I use baby wipes when out though, I tend to use huggies/pampers wipes as they are a bit thicker and feel nicer than e.g. Tescos own which I use for nappy changes.

Oh also I do a 60 degree wash every so often for all the muslins, bibs, facecloths, dishcloths, it stops them from smelling musty. And never use fabric softener on this wash.

Kitchen paper with a bit of water here.

Actually I've just realised that's really stupid because I've been washing nappies for 18 months and could really have washed flannels too. Damn it!!
