I thought about buying the cheeky wipes at the baby show on Sat, and decided to make my own. Bought some Itti Bitti lovely colourful wipes, £6.95 for 5 large. Am going to put in tupperware dish with cooled boiled water and drop of lavender oil. Going to put dirty ones in a different tupperware with drop of tea tree and lemon to disinfect and add nice smell!
One of the nappy lady reps recommended making own wipes with junior joy wipes (quite cheap on ebay £7.95) and putting in bit of boiled camomile tea, cooled and add drop of olive oil and drop of lavender oil.
I'm going to try my version first (similar to cheeky wipes) and will later try the nappy lady suggestion.
Hope this helps you

I don't keep them wet, a lot of people find they can have a bit of a mouldy smell if you do. I store mine dry and dampen with warm water.

For wet nappy changes I just use one, half wet, and half dry.
For dirty changes, I usually need three.

I use scrummy puddlekins/LLS wipes, obv and terry, but I got these for my mum/mil to have at theirs:

They're great quality and they have nice colours.
