  • We don't have anyone in our family who has a history of excema or sensitive skin, so I just continued using my tide as detergent, but used the baby downy.

  • 3 out of my 4 boys had eczema, so i used Tide that was free of frangrance and dyes. It was the fabric softener that i had to be careful with.

  • I used whatever I was using for the rest of us. Nobody has sensitive skin in our families and I just thought it was a useless expense.
