what kind of baby bath is best?

I have always used Johnson and Johnson head to toe baby wash, but i was wondering if there is a good "organic" baby wash to use. I have also tried california baby, which i really liked... Is that one supposed to be "healthier?"

  • We actually use a chemical free brand from a wellness company that sells all natural household and beauty products. Johnson and Johnsons actually uses formeldehyde as a preservative in their products to give them a longer shelf life. I don't need to preserve my baby.

  • I switched to Aveeno because my daughter was breaking out all the time.

    I don't use J&J, but I would like to show that to a friend. Do you have a link that proves it for me? Thanks!

  • We use Dr. bronner's baby soap. It is all natural and fragrance free. It comes in a baby blue labeled bottle. Every natural products store carries dr. Bronner's. DH is allergic to most soaps and everything dr. Bronner's makes is fine for him and DD. We even use it on our dogs.
