  • I used it with my first only because someone got it for me as a baby shower gift so once I used it all I didn't buy anymore. With my second baby I never used it. I always just used whatever we were using for our clothes. I honestly think it is a waist of money I don't think you have to use diffrent laundry soup unless your child is allergic or something

  • Never used it.
    My friend actually has a grandson who had horrible skin probs, and his doctor recommended to them that they start using it...and it actually made him break out more.

  • NEVER. Use a free and clear detergent. Dreft still has dye (why is is pinkish), and it has fragrances as well. It is marketed to mostly first timers, and is totally unnecessary... Had a friend be sweet when I had ds # 3 and do some laundry for me (I was in recovery from surgery, and couldn't lift wet laundry), she brought over some dreft and washed the kids clothes in it- ALL of them had a horrible rash.

  • I never used it. I used a fragrance/dye free detergent. I never washed baby's clothes separately either. All the clothes go in the wash together with regular detergent!

  • I used it for about six months. Once he started on regular foods.
    Then I just phased it out a little at a time to see if he would have a reaction.
