Which brand did you or do you use to wash your newborn and infant's clothes in? I am wanting to begin washing all the clothes I have for Jacob but not sure if I should get Dreft (sp?) or if the Baby All would be fine.
I use Dreft and baby Purex. The only reason I have those 2 off hand is because I had a coupon for the purex and mom brought be the Dreft and the hospital gave me bags of baby samples that had dreft in them as well.
As for the Baby All, I think most aimed towards baby's would be fine so if you want to use that, I think it would be okey.
I also used Dreft and Baby All, but not for long. I gradually started using other products, and as long as she didn't have a reaction, I used them. I actually still have half a box of dreft and a partial bottle of Baby All. I love the way Dreft smells, and I used it on all her clothes before she was born. I found the only thing I realy needed to worry about was what her cloth diapers were washed in. I needed detergent without enzymes in it, and that is pretty hard to find- even the baby detergents didn't help.
Oh, I should add that my DD had eczema, too. The detergent didn't seem to make a difference one way or the other, so you may not have to use a baby detergent at all.
I should also add that I've thrown a few of Paiges things with our laundry when I had the room for them (instead of doing an additional small load or wait for more dirty clothes) and the detergent I use most of the time (Purex or Tide) has never bothered her.
