soap for toddlers?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Hi, I was wondering what kind of soap you use to wash your toddler's hands.I was thinking Dr Bronner's soap. Also, would coconut oil work (being that it is anti bacterial, and all that other good stuff) ? Thanks!

Yes, we use Dr. Bronner's at all of our sinks, for everyone. I put it in recycled foaming soap bottles -- dilute at about 1/3 Dr. B, 2/3 water. It comes out as foam so it's thick and easy to use, especially for little hands.

 

We moisturize with coconut oil, but I don't think I'd use it to clean germs off hands. Or do you mean coconut oil soap?

Thank you for your input! And, no, I meant actual coconut oil,  just rubbing it on her hands.

We use the same soap setup as grethel. I don't put CO on hands but we do use it on DS's face during winter.

Oh, ok. I think for myself, I wouldn't count on coconut oil to be able to kill germs on her hands, especially now during flu season when that's so important. But Dr. B or another natural soap should work fine.
