Baby Magic Snob

babymagicConfession: I’m a Baby Magic snob.  I just don’t think that anything compares to the soft sweet scent of a baby just bathed in Baby Magic body wash and then lathered with original Baby Magic lotion.  I’m such an addict that I buy it in packages of six bottles on Amazon.  And Johnsons & Johnsons will never come close!  So I splurge on Baby Magic and I won’t use anything else!

It all started when both my mom and mother-in-law asked me if I was using “Baby Magic” on my newborn.  I had never heard of it.  In disbelief my mom ran out to the store to bring home a giant bottle of the wonderful lotion.

“What does that have to do with cloth diapers?” you may be wondering.  Well, it’s like this.  I make my own wipe solution for my cloth wipes. 

Throughout the last 21 months I have used a variety of cloth wipe methods – pre-moistened wipes in a pop-up container, dry wipes with a spray bottle {only on occasion}, and a foaming wipe solution.  My wipe solution uses baby shampoo along with baby oil and sometimes essential oils.  And for the 21 months I have been “using up” my Johnsons & Johnsons and store brand baby shampoo in my wipe solution.  {Yes.  I really did receive that much baby wash as gifts for my first baby.  I re-gifted the lotion.}

Now I have only two bottles of baby wash in my bathroom.  One is Baby Magic, and the other is a foaming pump that I use to make my own foaming baby wash. 

My husband recently asked me to go back to pre-moistened wipes.  I mixed up a 2 quart pitcher of solution with my precious Baby Magic bath wash.

As I was changing Nolan’s diaper the other day, I got a whiff of the sweet Baby Magic smell {but I didn’t realize it was coming from my cloth wipes}.  I thought, “Wow.  He smells good considering it is not bath day.”  When I finally realized that the lovely aroma was coming from my wipes container, I wondered why I didn’t use Baby Magic for wipes before. 

You should try Baby Magic.  You will never look back!

*Note…this is a pure personal preference/recommendation.  I was not paid to “advertise” for Baby Magic products.

Is it safe to wash the wipes with your cloth diapers, since they have baby magic on them? Just wondering.

Connie - that's a great question. I have always used some sort of baby wash/baby shampoo in my wipe solution, and I have never had a problem. There is only a small amount because you use so little shampoo in the water and then use it to moisten a lot of wipes. I think it just rinses clean in the prerinse. I don't have hard water, so I don't know if that could complicate things.

What is your solution recipe?

I use 4 cups hot water, 3 Tbsp. shampoo, and 2 Tbsp. baby oil (some use olive oil). I double it to fill my 2 qt. pitcher.
