My son is two and I still use it I think it should be used till they are old enough to pick out his/her own stuff

I would stop using it right now - immediately. The chemicals in JNJ products, such as 1,4-dioxane and formaldehyde are known carcinogens. For an in-depth look at Johnson and Johnson, type Johnson and Toxin into a search engine and find out more.

I wouldn't worry about it until they're older. I even use the body wash because I live in a place with really dry air.

I stopped using the baby products by the time they were a year old and never bought baby shampoo have always just used regular adult shampoo. I just leaned them back so they never got it in their eyes. I personally don't think the baby/kids products clean as well.

I think I would use them untill the kids were about 5-6
lol I used the body wash my self after I gave birth, I had 33 stiches and its the only thing I would dared to have put on my body and I even washed my hair with it in fear of the suds of my regular shampoo dripping down my body!!

My son is almost six and I still use baby products on him. Except for shampoo, just not effective anymore. i just feel that it is gentler on his skin, and it smells so nice! So my advise would be use it as long as he allows you to!

I usually go around 4 when they start to use the grown up soaps. However my 9 yr old son actually washes his hair with baby wash and always has. I tried the regular shampoos(and I have 3 girls and myself all with different hair textures so we've purchased quite a few) and the baby wash actually works the best and is overall inexpensive.

We probably won't stop using the tear-free products until all the kids are old enough to keep their eyes and mouths SHUT while they're getting rinsed. Unfortunately, I don't see that happening anytime soon.

I use it still on my son who is 2.5yrs old, but i also have a 10 month old daughter. I think even if we didn't have the baby i would still use it. He can pick out his stuff when he's a bit older.

I think use the Johnsons till they are in the shower and less likely to get it in thier eyes. My son is 4 and I still use all the Johnson products. I use the Loreal tear free shampoo/conditioner though.
