Looking for something moisturizing, as these cold winter months have taken a toll on all of our skin.  My DS doesn't like California Baby, but we're open to all other natural/organic options.  What's your favorites????

Do you dilute the Dr. B's first?  If I left a bottle of Dr. B's in the tub, it would be gone FAST with my kiddos ;)

 

Anyone else have favorites they would like to share????

We use the same thing -

 

Lisoula, we use the Dr. Bronner's Baby Bar soap, not the liquid

I love anything from indigo wild.  I use their bar soaps.  They have a line for babies but I haven't tried it as my kids are older.  The bar soap is called Wee Bar.

It's really natural and it's a great price.

We use dr bronners baby, when dd was a wee wee baby I used a squirt of full strength in a 8oz bottle filled with water, now that they are older and I use a wash cloth I dilute the kids to 50% strength. I dilute mine a bit too, it doesn't seem to bother it and helps it stretch farther!

We used to use Dr. Bronner's but found it way to drying.  My daughter has dry skin and we live in the dry mountain air so we are picky. Now I use Miessence.  We either use the Sunflower Body Wash http://yourorglife.mionegroup.com/en/product/33201 or Baby Cream Wash http://yourorglife.mionegroup.com/en/product/33201 which is certified organic and smells great from the vanilla.  Certified organic is really important to me as even all natural brands can have pesticide residue or GMOs.  Small children are 4-6x more susceptible to toxic synthetic chemicals than adults, so if she can't eat it and it's not organic, it doesn't go on her skin.
