  • You may want to check into this more. I haven't looked into it lately, but I once read that baby shampoo had an anesthetic in it to avoid irritating baby's eyes, if this is still the case you won't want to use it all over the baby.

  • If I recall correctly, I compared the ingredients on the Johnsons Baby Wash and Johnsons Baby Shampoo, and I believe they were the same, except one had a bit of coloring added.
