Bummas: After The Wipe and Before The Dipe
The easiest way to prevent diaper rash is to keep that area dry, but wipes leave that cute tushie all wet. That’s where Bummas ($17 for 10) come in handy. They are little, 5×7″ rectangles of soft, 100% cotton fabric. They’re velvety soft on one side and terry-cloth-like loops on the other. Just use them after the wipe to dry baby completely and toss them in the laundry. They wash up nicely and return to their original softness, with no shriveling or unraveling whatsoever. And they’re made in the USA. I know you could cut up washcloths yourself, but the edges would fray when you wash them. Trust me. I know this from experience. Bummas come all rolled up in a cute pack of coordinating colors so I love them for a shower gift.
