I've always used plain water as my wipe solution, but dd is 11 months old now and her poop is foul! I find myself reaching for disposable wipes at poopy changes because I don't think plain water is cutting it anymore. Most of the recipes I've seen online call for oil and I'm not sure that will be compatible with cloth diapers? I just made a solution of water, a few drops of tea tree and lavender oils, a small squirt of baby wash and a bit of olive oil. Now I'm wondering if the oil is a good idea? It is less than a tablespoon but I don't want it to cause repelling issues with my diapers.

What wipe solutions have you had good luck with and would such a small amount of oil hurt the diapers??

Vegetable oils wash out pretty easily. I would not worry about it as long as you are washing in hot water. If you were somewhere without hot water access I would be more concerned but it is still a small amount so not a big deal.

When my DD's poops got really nasty we actually started washing her butt at the sink with baby soap and running water to get her really clean. Of course now I'm in trouble because she is getting too big for that and I don't know what to do. She won't lie down for changes either. Usually we just use warm water at the sink to wet them as we need them, and I might put a little soap on there too if she has some stubborn spots, and I try to clean her off while she stands up if I can't get her to lie down. Or else I stick her in the tub!!! Lol.

Luckily they poop less often as they get older.

I do a few drops of baby oil, and a few drops of baby shampoo in my little 5 oz spray bottle. Never had a problem.

I never had an issue with a small bit of baby oil. However, I do just use plain water currently. I've found that some cloth wipes do better than others at wiping up my toddler's butt.
