  • Don't bother with it anymore. Use All Free and Clear. It is just as gentle to your baby's skin at half the price.

  • I never used it...but to each their own. I didn't really see the need to spend that kind of money on it.

  • I never did! My mother in law insisted and I told her to shove it. I use all and my baby has some dry skin but the doc said that it is low sud so it will be fine (my husband and I both have dry skkin anyway)

  • there are plenty of other "baby" detergents just diff brands, dreft was the "first" so its the most expensive. or you can use a reg one and just do a second rinse if you want. it really depends on your baby, if he has really sensitive skin i would go with a baby or a dye/scent free brand, if not than you can use whatever you want. its really up to you

  • Use regular detergent. If you're concerned about sensitive skin, rinse twice or buy the "free" kind for sensitive skin...but buy whatever you want.

  • I don't use Dreft...you're right...that stuff is expensive!! If you're looking for baby laundry detergent (because it smells so awesome) then try All Baby....Otherwise you might consider switching to All Free and Clear.....It's much more economical!
