    Default wipes warmer

    How many used a wipes warmer and do you think it is worth having this or not? I bought one today because a couple of people have said they are good to have but now I'm starting to rethink this.

    I borrowed mine. I didn't have a changing table, so it was a hassle for me to use the warmer.....it has to be plugged in. I just changed her wherever, so it was easier for me without. I only used it for a few days.

    Poeple do like them, though & *I'd* rather have warm wipes on *my* bottom.

    I didn't have one with ds and don't plan to have one this time either.

    I had one with Ryan and got tired of the wipes in the bottom turning brown. (I would forget to add some water to it) But the ones they have now says thats not a problem. I will probably use the one i have for a while in the beginning then stop..

    We didn't even register for one, Joe and I just really didn't want one.

    I never had one, but I heard good things from those mothers who did have one!

    I thought it was the most ridiculous thing in the world- until I had a newborn! Luckily, my sister gave me hers, so I didn't have to buy one. I didn't use it once it got warm/DD got bigger, but the cold wipes only make the changes worse.

    we've never had one. we have heat vents on the floor, so in the winter when they'd be colder, i set the wipes box on the vent, pick it up and replace it for changes.otherwise the wipes are room temp, which my kids never protested.

    I just left mine near a heat register in the winter/fall. In the warmer months, they stayed warm by themselves.

    Never used one. Neither girl has complained, although Ingrid can't talk too clearly yet

    We never had one and won't be buying one. DD never seemed to have a problem with cold wipes. Once I switched to cloth wipes though, I would use warm tap water to wet them.

    I decided to keep the wipes warmer. I figured I would give it a try.
