I'd skip the provodone. If you want an antiseptic, get hibiclens/dynahex (same thing, different trade names). Provodone is not very gentle on the skin.

Also, the scrubbie brush w/ provodone...I'd skip that. Regular handwashing should be great, or you can get the scrubbie that doesn't have anything added to it, so you can use it with soap, and then it can be a little shampoo brush for baby's hair to help with cradle cap and such.
