Might seem a strange question to some, but I'll explain why. To date, any changes I've done on myself I've used baby wipes to clean myself as this seems the quickest way and they're also very cheap to buy. But, now I'm just short of being two weeks solid wearing nappies every night with some evening wearing too and thinking are there other methods people prefer.
When my younger brother was in nappies (I would have been about 5 and 6 at the time), my mother would have me help out by passing her things while she changed him, and getting me to bin the used nappy after she had tied it up in a nappy bag.
I remember that she very rarely if ever used wipes on him. There was always packets of cotton wool and a cream beside the packet of nappies. I remember she would take out balls of cotton wool and have them ready and once she opened his nappy she would dip the balls of cotton wool in this tub of a white/pinky cream and if he was only wet wipe a few around him, and if he was dirty she would use a load of them to cover the poo in it. A few balls of it would then be used without cream to wipe anything left off. The used nappy would be left underneath him as she changed and she would just be dropping them all into it as she did the job. She'd then roll the whole lot into the nappy, tape it shut, bag it and get me to go downstairs to bin it.
I was always referred to as "my little helper" and "good boy" for this, so I did it all the time and the memories stuck.
So, do any of you use alternatives to wipes like cotton wool and cream? If so, what kind of cream do you use?
Or, do any of you use different methods again?
If you think I'm making my changes more complicated and wipes are the easiest way, feel free to tell me.
Just looking to try out other methods seeing as I'm enjoying getting back into being a DL properly and intend on keeping at least an overnight nappy a permanent thing, so seeing if there's anything worth trying out, to make things more relaxed and improve it in the mornings.
I should probably add that I'm sticking with just wetting for the moment.
