This hasn't been sitting with me well, as I'm imagining all the other chemicals that are in the Dreft, and I wouldn't want to sit my raw bottom in that! But that's just my gut reaction, and I wondered if others also recommend this, and/or have more information.
i am freaking out just THINKING about putting dreft near my vaj. it's not just soap, it's LAUNDRY SOAP! omg! i agree with the pp, bad on so many, many levels.

What that midwife recommended is harmful and tell your client so.
You don't want the cleint passing along that information to other mothers.
It's Not even a remotely correct clinical recommendation for a sitz bath to sit in laundry soap.:
Some people won't even wash baby clothes in that crap!
no thanks! why would one do that if you could use gentle soothing herbal mix? it's not expensive or anything. and if I dind't have that I'd use plain water before using alundry detergent!!

They use dreft for burn healing at our local e.r. Haven't heard of it for perineal soaks yet though, gross.

|Well I can see using the Lysol or at least the old Lysol that basically used alcohol tinctures of certain phenolic plants, sort of like how some people use EO's now and it was developed long before the invention of antibiotics.|
