DH has very sensitive skin, and it's a PITA trying to find a soap that doesn't hurt him. I'm worried that the baby will have the same problem, and I can't find a soap that's made for sensitive skin.
Does anyone have recommendations?
Have you tried Dove for sensitive skin? I believe its hypoallergenic and it's supposed to have less leftover soap residue than other brands.
Also you won't need to use soap on the LO until she's older. Her skin has lots of natural oils, you dont want to dry out.
"How often does my newborn need a bath?
There's no need to give your newborn a bath every day. In fact, bathing your baby more than several times a week can dry out his or her skin. If you're quick with clean diapers and burp cloths, you're already cleaning the parts that really need attention — the face, neck and diaper area."
Look online for natural bath products. There are a ton out there that are not made by big corporations that fill the soaps/lotions with chemicals, perfumes and dyes. If I can get the computer from my kiddos I will see what I can find...I hate searching from my phone.

**always remembering my 3 angels*
I've always used California Baby Super Sensitive for DS & will do the same for DD. Even if she doesn't have eczema like her brother, I'm just not a fan of the toxins found in most other products (even those for sensitive skin) -- our bodies absorb everything placed on the skin within 26 seconds. I've always been confused on why so many derms recommend Cetaphil -- a majority of the ingredients are known toxins 0_o
