  • No I used the same laundry detergent on my baby clothes as we used on our clothes it was the free and clear kind and the doctor told me that was fine and that it wasn't necessary to buy the Baby" laundry detergent

  • Nope. I don't like the smell or the price, just personally. I use All Free and Clear and that way I can use it for everyone's clothes in the household, unless hubby has been on the sub, then I have to use something with scent on his! But otherwise, it requires a lot less sorting.

  • nah, that's just advertisment scaring it into you. unless your child is allergic, just use what you use.

  • We used ALL Free and Clear because it is cheaper AND has NO dyes or perfumes. And then after figuring out that we had no skin issues....we used regular detergent.

  • I do not buy Dreft but I buy other baby detergent. I know All detergent makes it for baby. I love the smell! Buying a different brand name I save a lot more than if I went with Dreft.

  • Nope - can't stand the smell! I have always used Tide for all 5 of my babies and none of them ever had a reaction.

  • No, too expensive!! I used All Free and Clear when mine were babies, then when they got a little older I switched them to our regular detergent.
