Question for the mom's

How important is it to use laundry detergent that is free and clear, fragrance free for newborns?  I remember using Dreft for my daughter.

Did you use a special detergent?

it really depends on the baby..we never used anything special and never had problems..even when we bought a detergent that turned out really harsh and we stopped using it because the powder was so strong that we'd be coughing while putting it into machine...some babies may get irritated skin from some detergents but no way to know unless it happens

I washed all of her clothes in a free and clear liquid before she was born. I still use it as a precaution. My husband told me that he uses the scented stuff when he does the laundry! Ugh..Oh well, she is okay I guess!

I did use Dreft. I think now, I would consider making my own. I already make our detergent so I guess I'd google a recipe for a baby!

I did wash all of his clothes in a free and clear but was just thinking I bought more laundry soap but none of it is free and clear.

I plan on making my own laundry detergent soon, as soon as the jug we have runs out..I have a friend who used to make her own though and she warned me that borax is harsh, and bugged her son's skin (who has exzema) we'll see how the homemade stuff works with a newborn! there are borax-free recipes out there though I'm pretty sure

Dreft never got my boys' things clean (they puked and pooped a lot)

I bought some Name Brand like Tide- the "free and clear" kind.(for me as much as for them- the other makes me itchy)

I make my own now though.

We've only ever used Free and Clear, even before baby. Then my oldest (now 12) had eczema as a baby...I can only imagine how much worse it would be with the scents and additives in regular laundry soap.

Seriously, I love the smell of dreft, but I don't feel good putting my baby in clothes that have been washed in extra chemicals. Their skin is so delicate!!

Now 3 girls total...and we still use Free and Clear. :)

Knot Genie Review and Giveaway

With the Knot Genie, even the curliest, most knotted up hair practically slips through the unique bristle configuration – gently and painlessly. Try the Knot Genie on your kids (or on yourself) – you'll be amazed by the ease of brushing, as well as how it virtually stops breakage and split ends. You've wished for hair brushing standoffs to end. Wish granted." My Review:  Thanks to the Knot Genie for sending me the product to conduct my review.  I was not paid for this review and all opinions expressed are 100% mine.  I know I have grown so tired of my daughter coming to tears every morning when we did her hair. I was becoming to think she was the most
