What kind of laundr detergent do you use for your baby clothes?

Is Dreft the only opion? I have seen a lot of new "free" detergents and wonder if these are okay too?

  • I've been thinking the same thing and plan on using All Free and Clear. The cost of Dreft is ridiculous and the company should be ashamed charging that money. Like having a baby isn't expensive enough.

  • Unless ur baby has alergies, or skin problems, im sure u can use almost any kind, I used all different kinds and never had any problems, but with babies i would not use powder detergents, just a preference tho.

  • I have always used a Dye Free and Scent Free detergent because my son has sensitive skin. You do not have to use special and extremely costly detergent. Just use your own stuff.
    If you think about it, your baby is going to be touching all the clothes and blankets and bedding from YOU and anyone else in your home so why not just use all the same detergent?

  • The only detergent I could use when my DD was little was All Free and Clear. Anything else she broke out from. We still use it. She's 6, and she has sensitive skin and we've never had any problems with it.

  • We use anything now, but at the beginning we used All Free and Clear. You can use any kind though.
