Johnson's = bad?

My sil said that her doctor told her that Johnson's isn't good to use on babies. He said Huggies is more safe. I haven't EVER heard this, has anyone's doctor told this to them?Can you tell me why?

  • When huggies becomes a bigger brand name i will believe it. Johnson's has been used forever. Huggies doesnt even make a good diaper

  • Well my sister uses regular shampoo on her baby because baby wash/shampoo doesn't really have much soap in it. Maybe huggies has more soap?

  • I use Johnson's and never heard anythign bad. Only thing I have heard is from a co-worker who said the Huggies isn't really good on the eyes. Her kids freaked, but J&J didn't bother them at all.

  • I remember hearing something about johnsons not being the best too but I can't remember now what that was. my son's skin was too sensitive so I never used it anyway.

  • We only use Burt's Bees. It is natural and doesn't have the same nasty stuff that Johnson's does. I know many babies who's skin was terrible while using Johnson's but cleared up when natural soaps were used instead.
