 Anyone know of the best way to go organic for babies? Whats the best working, least expensive organic products? I have been reading a lot on the chemicals in the Johnson and Johnson products and am not going to use their products until they fix the problems. Anyone have any advice for this mommy on a budget?

All products or just body care?   For laundry detergent we use the ECO brand in lemongrass scent.  They also have an unscented one as well.   Mrs meyers is a good brand for all natural/organic ( i think they fit in this catergory) detergents and cleaners.

I also use California baby.  I bought a sample pack from Target when DD was first born and we still have things left...7mths later.  I also use ALL Free and Clear laundry detergent and add one cup of baking soda...to keep the clothes soft and one cup of vinegar...to disinfect.  I like to keep my home chemical free!

I never tried the california baby products. I have tried babyganics, johnson & johnson, aveeno, but my fav. is Mustela. I have been using mustela products. :-)

newborns don't need soap. So no lotions or soaps are needed till they are a little older. We just washed with water till she started getting rolls under her chin :) 
Also, we use olive oil to moisterize her little cheeks that got chapped.
Good luck
