we used dreft the 1st 6ish months with DS. honestly, we use only free and clear detergent for our clothes b/c i have sensitive skin, so we could probably just use that.

We lucked out with Megan not having any issues that we just used our regular soap. I'm wondering if we will be as lucky a 2nd time around.

We did and do and probably will again this time. Isabelle has sensitive skin (she's allergic to some wipes a d detergents) so we used All Baby at first and now Tide Original.

I'm not 100% sure yet..I did with my 1st 2 babies then just used a "free & clear" type detergent the 3rd time around. None of the kids have had issues with regular detergent.

I switched to a free and clear detergent before DD was born and mostly used that until recently. She's never had a problem with regular detergent though. I'll probably go back to that when I start washing this baby's stuff.

I used All Free and Clear with DD and will be with this one. I have found it with a baby smell to it like Dreft but for me it's hard to find. I also do Bounce Free dryer sheets. I have very sensitive skin and just changing the smell in the same brand of something can break me out.

I'm sensitive skinned (one of my few allergies is to certain detergents) so hopefully we can pick up some dreft. The thing is, we have a shared washing machine. Someone in this building uses something I'm allergic to so we'll have to use someone else's machine if it's a problem for the baby.

We use an organic green one (not sure the name). We use it for all the clothing and have never had any problems..

Will probably buy a specific baby one with a softener in it, I don't use fabric softener because I don't give two hoots, but I would like to keep the nice soft clothes nice and soft for as long as possible.

Most babies on my side of the family have some form of eczema so I will have to be very careful with my baby's skin. I will probably be using Ivory Snow, just in case. Since it's really expensive, I'll keep baby's clothes separate and will wash my husband and I's laundry with regular detergent.

We switched to all free and clear when we started doing cloth diapers so that we washes everything in the same soap. We won't switch from that unless Olivia has a reaction to it.
