  • you can buy the krogers version or the all version. check the labels against each other when in doubt

  • i would say try yours and if it bothers the baby's skin change it. i used purex free and clear and it worked for my dd.

  • I always used the same detergent with my babies clothes. I never used the Dreft or any of those special baby detergents. If you have found one that works for your sensitive skin, then it will probably work for your baby as well!

  • I would try a Free and clear detergent, or just use the one you using(at least on one load) to test it.

  • Rockin' Green works awesome. Same with Dreft.

  • I have never used the expensive Dreft, but I do use the dye-free, fragrance-free detergents for my son's clothes. We just find which one is cheapest of the free detergents and buy that. I have extremely sensitive skin, as does my husband, and it looks like my son has picked that up from us as well.

  • I would say use yours and then if there is a problem switch. i was told by my doctor that nothing special needs to be used

  • I would use MelaPower 6x Laundry Detergent - my family has very sensitive skin - I love this product because it is natural and very concentrated - it is gentle on our skin and works great!
