Do babies really need soap/shampoo? - Page 2

post #21 of 23

The combination of my chunky girl's skinfolds and my over-active letdown that regularly sprays her face and neck makes a stinky baby. I use California Baby, Burt's Bees, and whatever else I was given at my baby shower that is not full of chemicals.

I don't think soap is necessary at all on a baby.

 

I bathe my 12 week old 2 - 3 times a week and spot clean every day, but only with warm water. He smells fresh and is always clean. I don't see any reason to start using soaps or shampoos on him anytime soon.

 

DH and I only use mild castile soap on *select spots* in the shower and use nothing on our hair but a good scalp rub. It took awhile for our skin and hair to get used to this, but after the oil regulated I think everything turned out much better looking and healthier than before :) We both have sensitive skin and I find this method to be great not just for our skin, but also for our budget!

I use California Baby too...about half done with the bottle I got at her baby shower and she's almost 6 months old. I don't use it most times she gets a bath though, usually just let her splash in the tub. Now that my mom watches her 4 days a week, part of their routine is for her to get a long soak/play in the tub every day.
