  • Unless he is alergic to the detergent. You could have used it from day one.

  • I started the second they were born. I never used special detergent. If I had to I know I would have to change it for everyone in the household. If the baby is allergic to ours then they will not be able to be held or close to use either.

  • Honestly, I've never used dreft. Not even on newborn stuff. I get the free and clear.

  • I think it depends on how sensitive your child is. I only used dreft for the first kid... after that I couldnt be bothered to separate every load. All my kids are fine.

  • I quit using that at 1 year. Now we use Purex Naturals. And Downy with the pic cap softener. Thats the only kind we can use or he gets irratated.
