I didn’t even know wipes warmers existed. I just use warm tap water and dry wipes.

We are planning to make our own solution in a spray bottle to use with dry wipes/cloth wipes (sensitive skin and fragrance allergies run in the family, and I don’t want to have to handle the wipes myself, let alone use them on our baby).

Crumple it up and hold it in your hand. Free, quick and problem solved.

@Hyperventilate:  I was going to say the same thing. Your hands will warm them up nicely, no?

I babysat for a family who kept them on the floor next to the furnace!

They were always pretty warm!

We make our own wipes and they definitely aren’t as cold as the packaged ones…not really sure why, but it’s true.

I took a flannel receiving blanket and cut it into squares.  We use those with the peri bottle the hospital gave me full of water and wash them.  Its cheaper then disposable wipes and no where near as cold.  We squirt a little on each wipe before we use, and it seems to clean better then the store bought ones.

@Sunshine09:  Someone told me to put them between your boobs while you are getting ready to use them.

@Sunshine09:  we are using our wipes warmer for our cloth wipes, and it stays plugged in. We just fill it with a bit of water and baby soap (Dr. Bronner’s). Then the wipe just goes in the laundry basket. it’s great!

The baby really doesn’t care and the wipes warmers just dry out the wipes so you have to buy more.  Most moms I know get over this pretty quickly.

@beachbride1216:  +1, I was thinking the same thing. Of all the diapers I have changed (and lord knows there have been hundreds if not thousands), I have never even considered this as an issue. Ever.

Maybe keeping the container in the window in the sun (I live in FL). 

Or maybe on top of the dryer? 

I didn’t care if the wipes were cold. Lol!
