You're too much, Aveeno makes body-wash & shampoo in one bottle so is Johnson's ,

you won't tell me you've never compromised using head&shoulders or Pentene when you're out of body wash or shower gel? Sheesh!

Moreover there are " no tear" shampoos out there
Is there any mother that hasn't run out of wipes and used damp kitchen rolls
I have

OK my money saving tip

I would cut open the foot area of the baby onesies ( and the footed pajamas) so the growing kid could wear it for longer grin grin grin

Even all of them are 'no more tears' with your preference of fragrance .... we all have been there done it and still doing it abi?

If you damp those expensive paper towels/kitchen rolls I mentioned earlier , they are are smooth as Huggies I'm not kidding!

( my husband chattered them in hundreds in wholesales cos we have busy house)......

I prefer wash-clothes ( face towels size) instead tho...

Just going through the responses and am wondering how will naija problem get solved with comments like this above. We do not have the do it yourself altitude. Have you asked yourself actually how wipes are made. Paper rolls are actually thicker than tiolet rolls. If wipes are 200naira and you use it till a baby is two or sometimes three and you learn how to eliminate that cost.....guess one would have save something worthwhile after that period

Don't mind them
Nigerians are good at shooting down ideas from others
Imagine someone telling us it will be too hard for her baby's bottom
A damp paper towel is hard?
Don't be surprised some of the ones forming are using pages of The Sunday Punch and Ikebe super to wipe their baby
grin grin
But they won't admit to that money saving tip here grin

Babies basically have loose stools for the first few months of life, so changing a newborn 7 times a day is not unheard of. Slowly, frequency begins to consolidate, reducing to as few as 4 diaper changes a day by four months of age.
That’s a whopping 1,470 diapers in 365 days if we use 4 diaper change a day. These cost can be reduced by using washable nappies. Cloth nappies have evolved over the years and have become easy and very convinent to use. No more pins and large towels. Find attach a pix of what it looks like now. Trainers pant is another money saver, when u are ready to potty train u start wearing the child washable trainers pant instead of the disposable ones. The disposables could be used when taking the child out of the home.

Find attached pix of washable nappy and trainers pant

Those are awesome rexxx, and just use a liner every use, dispose it and you can soak all re-useable nappies and they are good to go for another use(best if you have a maid/help).....we have a nappy disposal system in my province...takes all the dirty nappies and recycle with fresh ones every 3days or so(not cheap either).....I stopped using nappies cos of too much stress with constant washing **covers face**.....disposable diapers all the way cool
