Is anyone not using Dreft or other kinds of fragrance free detergents? For the most part I wash her clothes with Dreft but when it runs out I am going to use what I use for the rest of us. Every now and then I throw some of her clothes in with ours and it seems fine.

When we first had him, I used fragrance free for the first few months. Then when we ran out, I just started using our Tide with bleach and he has done fine with it. I figured that if he had a reaction I would go get the fragrance free and rewash everything, but it wasn't necessary.

I used Dreft until she was about 6 months. Now I use the same Tide we use for our stuff (it's not die/fragrance free). The only thing I do different is I don't use anything in the dryer with her stuff.

I use All free and clear, but I always use that because I have very sensitive skin so we use it all the time anyhow. I am hoping he doesn't have the super sensitive skin like me. My niece is pretty bad so hopefully he isn't.

I'm still using the baby stuff. Ran out of Dreft, and had some baby purex from the vacation home. ONce that is all gone - I plan to use what we use for the rest of us. He doesn't seem to have sensative skin...

We have always used dye/fragrance free. Once we had kids I switched to 7th generation, I order it from Amazon.

I've switched detergents a few times with no issues. Right now I use Biokleen laundry powder.

I'm using Dreft until it runs out, then switching to regular. I have used regular a couple times with no problems though!

I've always used the Costco brand detergent for Natalie's clothes with no issues. I've been using Downy and Bounce also.
