2 layer birdseye wipe shown after washing
Two layers of unbleached organically grown 100% cotton birdseye fabric. About 7 x 7.5 inches after shrinkage with some variation. Before shrinkage they are about 8.5 x 8.5 inches. Fold in half to fit into a wipes warmer. Birdseye fabric has little "birds" woven into the fabric. This is much smoother than terry but not as smooth as flannel. Thus, they have a nice amount of "grippiness" to get stuff off with a balance of being smooth enough for softness. They can also be used as cotton diaper liners, to keep meconium off of your newborn diapers or if you need to use a cream but don't want to use a flushable liner. The cream will wash out of these more easily than a prefold or other diaper because they are thinner, yet you still might have to scrub creams off by hand. Easy washing and fast drying.
We added an small seam across the wipe to help them keep their shape, yet cotton shrinkage will vary a bit of course. Like all cotton, wash several times on hot with detergent before first use. Suggested amount: 4 packs for a young baby, 3 packs for an older baby. 100% cotton. Two layers of fabric sewn together to keep seepage off your hands yet they are still thin enough to be easy to use. Made of organic cotton. Made in Pakistan. In packs of 12 wipes.
This is the best wipe I have used so far (previously tried bumpkins, nikkis - both more of a flannel) since the birdseye pattern is more grippy for poops and food particles after eating. The size even after watching is comparable to other wipes. I also like it because it is double-layered. You do have to wash if several times before it becomes very absorbent, but even after one wash, it absorbs water when you dunk it underwater and absorbs enough from a spraybottle to work. Out of the 2 dozen wipes I bought, only one has a small edge fringing, but it's not unraveling.
I am admittedly a lover of all things GMD but these wipes are my favorite after trying many brands/types. They are thin so you can fit a bunch in a tiny wet bag, they are absorbent, they have just enough texture to do a good job cleaning but not so much as to be a little rough like some of the others I've tried and they are fantastic quality (as everything from GMD is). Thanks again for having such great products that work!
LOVE these wipes! Perfect size to clean up messes and the texture helps grab everything while still being so soft. I've been using these wipes for a year and they are very durable and wash well. They are thick so my hands always stay clean and are easy to fold over so that I can use it to clean twice the mess.
I read a previous review that said these wipes grab everything that needs to be grabbed, but are still super soft. That reviewer was not joking. I've had 3 dozen of these birdseye wipes for almost 2 years and they are so super soft and get the job done so well. I never feel like I'm going to get poo on my hands even during the messiest of changes. I just ordered 2 dozen more so I have plenty for both changing stations and the diaper bag!
I really like these wipes. I have a set of them, some OsoCozy flannel wipes, and a set of Thirsties velour wipes. They all blow poly baby washcloths away, and the Thirsties are my favorite. These are just so much more affordable and really, they wash better too. Some of my Thirsties wipes bunch but the stitching keeps these looking nice even now that we're on baby #2. They really do a much better job than the thin flannel OsoCozy ones. They're my favorite for the diaper bag since the thirsties are too bulky for my wipes pouch. I can easily fit 10+ of these, but only about 6 fluffy velour ones. Really great part of my stash.
