For us, we used cloth wipes from the beginning because that was our only option in the hospital. When we came home we tried one disposable wipe which made the baby pumpkin quite red. We decided then that we would stick with cloth wipes. We used washcloths in the beginning and we have a few flannel wipes now (we prefer those). I am excited to see that The Cloth Diaper Report is going to be doing a focus on cloth wipes later in December (the 14th-22nd). I am hoping that I can pick up some new ideas and maybe try some new wipes (so we can phase out the washcloths).
