  • I used it for about 3 months is just got to be a hassle and an unnecessary expense.  It never seemed to make a difference for my son.

  • I never used Dreft it was too expensive. I always used a 'free and clear' soaps because of allergies. With the kids I found All Free and Clear. I like it best.

  • we never used it at all. we have always used TIde... its great for hypoalergenic (the plain kind, unscented) and gentle on babies' skin.... mine is allergic to purex which is supposed to be mild, but he gets rashes. you were fine to use something else from the start! :)

  • I used it with my first son for quite a while - probably a year or so. With my daughter I used it at first, but had to switch to clear stuff because she was allergic to all dyes and perfumes. So I just switched to All Free & Clear for all of us instead of using one for her and a different one for us. With my last baby I never used it. It is just an added expense we just don't need.
