  • I also love the smell of baby wash and shampoo. My son is two and I plan on using it for as long as he will let me. I expect when he's around 5-6 he will see the word "baby" on the bottle and protest. :-(

  • I'd say anytime after one year. But, I am like you, there is nothing I love better than using baby soap and shampoo on a little one. I even buy it for myself sometimes.

  • My dd is 7 and still uses it for bodywash. She uses regular shampoo and conditioner though. My ds is 4 and still uses it for both. He probably always will because he has bad ezcema.

  • I think I'm going to use it for as long as possible. If only for the fact that it has the numbing agent in it, so if they get soap in their eyes it doesn't sting. I'm 28 and occasionally get soap in my eyes and it stings like heck. I can ony imagine being little and having that happen...

  • I will use the baby wash for as long as my daughter will allow, but she has a full head of hair, so I imagine before too long I will have to switch over to reg. shampoo and conditioner.

  • my sons dermatologist said to use dove beauty body wash. its much more milder and safer then johnsons baby wash, who would've thought? but if you want to be on something thats mild and safe i'd switch to dove beauty body wash. my son has atopic dermatitis so thats why he requires it
