Soap-what age do you start using it?

Really two questions..
At 2 years my daughter uses the liquid soap-J&J baby wash/shampoo or the store brand equivalent. At what age did you start having them use real soap? I use Lava Soap or Wool Soap in bar form since there is less waste- so much can easily be pumped out of the liquid containers. I was hoping to find a toddler bar soap, but have not seen any. Any hints as to where I can get this?

  • I think Aveeno makes some bar soaps, but at two yrs old, use whatever just not on her face. I use my husband's AXE bodywash on our five yr old son- he wants to smell like daddy! lol and my daughters 4 and 1 both use my Dial Nurtiskin soap. For my 6 month old we use the Aveeno baby- all my kids started out on Aveeno baby as soon as the cord fell off!! I have always had very sensitive and dry,cracked skin so I didn't use anything else until about 2.... :)

  • Burt's Bees baby bar soap is so much better than what you have been using. Read all the chemicals in Johnsons & Johnsons and other baby products. Your child is worth it to buy quality products that have minimal harmful chemicals.

  • My son has been using Dove unscented bar soap since about 9 or 10 months when the doctor said to use it because of his excema. It works good but i doesnt smell super nice because its unscented
