"Natural" baby bath products

I have a newborn, and am trying to decide what I will use on him regularly.  I know that finding a product that's completely natural and organic is difficult, and when you do they're ridiculously expensive.  So I'm just trying to find good ones that are as close to natural as possible.  I have been using Burt's Bees Baby so far.  I like it, but the smell is a bit strange.  I've heard good things about Weleda baby, and I'm thinking of giving it a try.  Has anyone used those products?  Or are there any others that you would recommend?  I really don't want to spend more than $10 a pop.

California baby is awesome. It is expensive- but 1 thing of soap will last a few months. I use method baby-it's not 100% all natural but it's really close and doesn't have any harmful ingredients... it's not badly priced.

We love weleda but cant really afford it, so we compromise. Aveeno isnt all natural but it doesnt have all the chemicals that johnsons or huggies has, and we love the smell!

Where do you find Method baby?  I thought Target sold method, but I couldn't find the baby products on their website.

I agree, I like aveeno. I use it for myself too! Not the baby stuff, but the regular body wash and bath products.

We have been using California Baby since my dd was born and I love it..  It is kinda expensive but the soap is very thick and a little bit goes a long way!

Here is a secret: your newborn doesn't need any soap! Just a short, warm bath, with a bit of olive oil for the "crusties"

We love the California baby products. There is a new, non-toxic line at Target (the name escapes me, but one of the founders is a CafeMom).

Before buying or selling any body care products, it is important to check the safety of the ingredients. I like the Skin Deep database maintained by the Environmental Working Group (the folks who publish the guide to pesticides in produce). http://www.ewg.org/

We first used baby wash from Shaklee (green company) but I stoped working for them and since, I have not used their stuff. NOt that it was bad or anything, I just couldn't afford to keep working for them. So then I started using Method's baby was. It's 99% natural, tear free, and hypoallergenic. It smells really good too. I get the Rice Milk and Marshmallow...mmmmm. And it hasn't irritated my son's skin at all and he has eczema and allergies. I get it at Target and it's about $6 for 8oz.
