  • Honestly, I use Tide and then Downy fabric softener. When they were first born I used Dreft, but I only used it for a month or so. By then I could tell that they didn't have any sort of reaction to "my" soap (from me holding them).

  • Dreft, I used it for a little while, but it's expensive, Once I realized she didn't have a problem with being against my clothes or blankets I switched to our regular stuff

  • Just as the previous poster said, you can use Dreft at first. But anything "free and clear" will work. Arm & Hammer makes the best one for the least $$. I will end up using Tide free & clear (no perfumes or dyes). All makes one that is nice too.

  • I used the same laundry soap my Husband and I used and it was never a problem. My Son has had His clothes washed in Tide His entire Life.

  • I use a degerent that's free from dyes and perfumes. I think it is an All brand and not that expensive. You might want to start off with something like that for now because babies skin is so sensitive.

  • anything free and clear. Dreft is really expensive. The free and clear has nothing in it a baby should react to.
