Wipe Warmer Refill?

Although my baby HATES cold wipes, I couldn’t justify the expense of a wipe warmer. However, this past weekend I was able to find one at a thrift store for $2 (insert happy dance)! I purchased a 2 pack of the refill sponges new from WalMart, but was surprised to see even these carry a $9 price tag. Does anyone have a cheaper alternative to buying these?

    I only bought the 2 and when mine refill sponges got a little dry I just washed it out in the sink and put it back in the bottom. I did this everytime I put new wipes in and it lasted along time. I don’t think I ever replaced my first two. Loved the wipe warmer, I now buy it for a baby shower gift.

  2. I use cloth diapers and real washcloths and like you in the winter I hated using an ice cold washcloth on the baby. I got a warmer cheap and since it was a solid piece on the inside I put my wet washcloths in it. It holds enough for a day or two and then I fill it up again. I was the washcloths when I was diapers so it’s no big deal. I also have used the warmers that just wrap around the box and I did the same thing. I bought a box of disposable wipes that came in a nice sturdy plastic box and put my washcloths in that. I don’t bother with it in the summer because a cool washcloth actually feels good.

  3. I received a wipe warmer as a baby shower gift with my first child. I also just washed out the original sponge and resused it. In fact, I used the same sponge up until I switched to cloth diapers with my second child. With the cloth wipes you don’t need the sponge because they stay wet longer.

  4. I also use cloth wipes. I have found that an old t-shirt cut into squares works better than the double-layer flannel wipes I made as they are too thick. I use a wipes warmer, but mine does not require a sponge. The heating element is in the top. I don’t know how this is different from yours, but have you tried not using the sponge? Would it work without it?

    I am an elderly reader living in Finland. When I started having kids in 1974, we had no products like diaper wipes, as are prevalent today even in Finland. We just used warm water. After wiping off as much muck as possible with the diaper, I picked up the baby, carried it to the bathroom, turned on the faucet, sat the baby on the side of the sink, and splashed the water, taking away the last of the muck. I used a towel to dry–never any diaper rash, seldom need for powder and no garbage. We visited the USA after 9 months and many members of my American family converted to our system.

  6. If your wipes come in a plastic resealable pouch about the size of your warmer (not about 300 wipes per bag), do not take them pouch. Put the pouch and all in the warmer, but to not seal it, the wipes will not dry out and you do not have to use the sponges.
