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."

Aveeno! Not the generic stuff, it may say it's the same thing, but it's not. It's the only thing that keeps my eczema at bay.

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.

The Nuetrogena body wash (the brown unscented one) doesnt give me any trouble with my eczema and sensitive skin.
It worked great on my nephews who have the same problem also.

Thank you for the amazing siggy *Kiliki*

My friend's baby couldn't tolerate any soap The derm finally recommended Cetaphil & that was the only thing that worked for him.

DS has sensitive skin, has had a problem with Eczema since about 1m old and we've used Dove sensitive skin unscented since then and it keeps it at bay. Anything else breaks his skin out

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
