Has anyone used purex Baby? I use to use regular purex for our clothes but we use tide now, I have super sensitive skin and will break out with other detergents so I always use baby detergent for the first year or so, and do baby clothes seperate. I just want to know if this is as good as Dreft and if it smells as nice. I use to use Dreft or Baby All but can't ever find baby all anymore. I am going to buy some from Amazon and have it for when we move so I can get her clothes washed and hung/folded so I know what all I have and what I need to buy more of.

I'll probably stick to the tried and true Dreft. I have sensitive skin and it was passed on to me through my grandmother. Don't know if one of these LO will have it too.

I didn't even know Purex made a baby version! None of us has sensitive skin, so I've always just used Tide since that's what I had to buy for washing our CDs too.

My whole family broke out once when I changed detergents thus we have to only use Tide. When they were babies i just used half as much detergent and it was ok. I wash them separately as well, which totally reminds me my laundry situation is going to get even worse. Oh no! :-)

So, if you don't have sensitive skin, if Deft really important or just another money maker? We use Gain and have never had a problem. Can I hold off on buying the baby stuff till I see how the baby reacts or is it better to be safe than sorry and just keep the deft in the house?

I think it's a personal choice. As you can see here many people are using their regular detergent so you could try that out. I'm just weird and with how sensitive my skin is, I stick to baby detergent. Just a little insight of how sensitive I am, I was a nanny and broke out in a horrible rash all over my face and hands, I looked like I had been beat up and had swollen black eyes, went to the dr and had to be out on so many rounds of steroids and a month later we finally figured out it was Lubrederm. The lotion the babies doc told the parents to use for their excema and I think it even said hypoallergenic.

We use free and clear detergent, and we'll just continue to use that for the baby too. If she shows any signs that she's sensitive to it, then I'll figure out what to use for her.

For most babies, whatever the family uses is fine. But if the parents or siblings have sensitive kin, then t's more likely that baby will as well.

I'll probably use Dreft or All Free and Clear. A few years back I had a good coupon for gain and tried that out. Big no-no. DD ended up breaking out after I washed her sheets in it. She woke up in the middle of the night with half of her face hugely swollen. So now it's just free and clear for her!

Wow, lubriderm is one of those safe lotions for us. That an aquaphor, you are really sensitive.
