    Does anyone have a suggestion for a soft cloth to be used on a runny nose of a baby? I always used the soft gauze diapers (tells my age). My daughter-in-law wants something very soft and gentle on my grandson. And can be laundered. Anything she uses chaps his nose. I know this is a strange question but I know I can get some suggestions.

    How about the flour sacks, I bought a bundle and cut up some for dish cloths. Once laundered they are soft.

    Walmart has some. I think they about 4 for $5.50. Be sure to wash them to get all the sizing out.

    I would try a soft flannel for that sensitive nose. Instead of Neosporin, try A&D Ointment. It contains lanolin. She might also be careful of the laundry detergent she uses. My son was very sensitive to many on the market. No fabric softener either (leaves behind a residue in the fabric that can be irritating).

    A & D, Neopsporin or just vaseline will help prevent the poor little ones nose from getting so sore no matter what you use to wipe it (as long as it is soft). It provides a barrier against the mucus and the friction that wiping it constantly causes.

    I mistakenly used neosporin on my oldest son and found out the hard way that he was allergic to it. Please be sure that she uses something that would maybe be a little better...vaseline or A & D ointment maybe? I always used an OLD bandana style handkerchief that was just about worn out. They get soooo soft after years of use.

    Hope that the baby gets better soon from the runny nose.

    I used plain old chapstick on my kids and grands noses. It stays on longer than other ointments. :D:D:D

    I used to use flannel pieces. I cut some about 6" square and pinked the edges. Then I ran a tight stitch around the edges. worked for me!
