  • I never used dreft, I hated the smell when pregnant so never got it after my DS arrived. We just use Unscented Detergents for sensitive skin. Seventh Generation, is the type we mostly buy, they have a baby line.

  • I never used it. We use Arm and Hammer Detergent due to other skin sensitivities in the house and it was recommended to us by a dermatologist.

  • I stopped at age 2 when I figured out she wasn't having any reactions to our clothes after sitting on our laps.

  • Never used it. I always just used the same thing for hers as I used on our clothes. Usually the cheap stuff. Never had a problem.
