The Amazing Cheeky Wipes!

We used reusable nappies and Cheeky Wipes with Elizabeth from when she was around 3 weeks old.  I can even remember the day that we started using them.  It was snowing heavily outside and had been like that for a few days.  It was just before Christmas in 2010.  We had run out of disposable nappies and the local shop didn't have any in so we were forced into using our stash of reusables - I was definitely unsure about it as I was still trying to adapt to life as a new Mum and couldn't see how I was going to fit in an extra washload every couple of days and get everything dry, etc.  It turned out that I had nothing to worry about and was actually quite gutted when we had to stop using the reusables due to Elizabeth developing a very sensitive bottom.  We also decided to stop using the reusable wipes as well.

I loved the reusable wipes we got from Cheeky Wipes.  They were so soft and made cleaning E's bottom easy. When I found out they did a 'hands and faces' kit made with lovely, soft micro fibre, I knew we had to try them.  E seems to have fairly sensitive skin and constantly had a rash around her mouth which we assumed was from the oil in her foods (as she was very sensitive to olive oil when she was a baby).  However, after doing a few experiments, we ruled out a lot of different things - everything except the wet wipes we were using.  After only a couple of days of using the Cheeky Wipes for E's face, her rash had disappeared and hasn't yet come back.  That was almost 4 months ago, back in August. 

We've since bought a new set of wipes for bottoms and plan to switch T into reusable nappies shortly.  Hopefully it'll be as plain sailing as last time!
