Did you use special laundry soap for your babies?

Me and my DH did with DD and I am pretty sure was are going to use it again. Does/Did anyone else use it? Do you think it is an important thing to use?

  • No special soap. I figured if I'm holding baby and she's up against my clothing, then I'd have to wash my clothing too, not just hers. So I figured if hse was sensitve, I would switch.

  • They don't usually need special soap unless they have sensitive skin. I wash the baby stuff with the same detergent as the rest of the family and none of my children have ever had a reaction to it.

  • No - we use Tide free and clear which has no dyes or perfumes anyway, so we never got anything special for my 4 kids.

  • With the first, I used one bottle of Dreft.

    After that, (with the others) I just used a "sensitive skin"/ dye free, perfume free, etc detergent.

    For whites, I wash as normal with bleach, but give a second rinse.

  • Dreft - it smells so good and lasts forever

  • We just use dye free soap other than that nothing special.

    I like the purex 3 in 1 sheets.
