    If your needing help there is a fabulous list in here. 'Kezza's list' - it's a 'everything you could possibly need type of thing, so you don't need it all - but it's brilliant for picking things off. Xxx


    On my iPhone - so cant see tickers :(

    Officially they recommend just water for the first few weeks cos baby's skin is so delicate. If you really don't like cotton wool can get washable wipes, we use them all the time - or just cut up some cheap towels/facecloths. X

    I'm getting cotton balls & baby's newborn wet wipes, see which I find easier at the time.

    Muslim squares are like puke cloths but better, I don't know though in which way, first time mummy :)

    I'm going for newborn wipes personally. Everyone I know has used them on newborns with no problems. I can imagine you'd need bucket loads of cotton wool balls!

    And ladies, I think we mean MUSLIN cloths, not MUSLIM cloths :lol:
