  • i used all baby aswell. But if you find that you are one who likes dreft I know target sells their store brand of it and it is a lot cheaper than the name brand.

  • I just used the laundry soap we had at the time. It worked for us and we didn't have to pay for anything pricey. I heard that dreft has perfumes that can irritate the baby if they're sensitive to that. I could be wrong, it's just what I've read on here before.

  • If you want the convenience of a store bought brand I would use all, or one of the organic detergents, but if you MAKE your own soap you know exactly whats in it just in case something irritates your babies skin. There are TONS of recipes on the web that are good, and their cheep because your not paying for the brand name.

  • I used dreft w/ my son, and am using it this time around as well. Only until I know how her skin is, then I will continue to use what I normally do which is purex.

  • I used both dreft and and clear. Both work well and ALL is less expensive than dreft and worked well. Now I use purex and it works well also
