Good afternoon ladies So what's your favorite choice when it comes to lotions and shampoos.. With all the chemicals, and results etc.. What do you find is healthiest and works the best? I was going to go with st. Johnson's products.. my step mom said no cause of the vasoline ( lol i know it wrong but it's not giving me the right word) However, like the rest of you i would like to keep it natural, but cost friendly as well.

Earth Mama Angel baby or Dr. Bronner's.  Daisy Blue Naturals (home-based business) has a nice baby wash and lotion too.

We really don't use soap often anymore and have never used baby lotions.

If I do use a soap, it's Dr Bronners. Baking soda is great too.

Kids/babies who aren't getting dried out from chemicals in the bath really don't need lotion, especially when they're breastfed, but if you do find you need something, I'd recommend coconut oil.

And if you're like me and prefer a liquid soap over a bar, a way to make the Dr Bronners more affordable is to buy the bar soap ($4 instead of $14 for liquid) chop it into tiny pieces and "cook" it into a liquid soap by putting it in water on the stove over medium heat until the soap completely dissolves. You can dissolve one bar of soap into enough water to fill two liquid soap containers.

ditto on castille soap and coconut oil.

Babies don't really get dirty so they don't need much, if any, soap.

that's great! Wonderful info everyone.. love the boiling down a bar a soup idea!! Never thought about that. I just always thought lotioning babies was atomatic .. like an everyday deal. I'll have to see if the stores around have that Bronners.. cause it doesn't sound familiar. I'll use the conocut oil forsure! try that bar soup process. :D
