Baby lotions, soaps and shampoos

This is one of the only things I'm picky about! Usually I shop cheaply or at dollar stores, but for lotion I have to have Johnson's. To me, a few dollar store kinds have had a greasy feel to them and I just end up using them for hand lotion. Shampoo I'm not picky on, but I like to get Johnson's baby wash also mainly because I like the smell.

My little one is super allergic to any kind of lotions, the only things she's fine with are pure olive oil and Aveeno. Aveeno is fine I guess but not that moisturizing. There is another brand you can try, it's the only thing I've used on my baby and hasn't caused any allergies. It's called Aeolo Organic or something like that. And their baby lotion is called Baby Elin. It's all natural. But it's a little pricey. You can order samples first.

I love J&J, Aveeno Baby, Huggies, Parent's Choice and Burt's Bees.. But my son couldn't handle anything like that :( He has really bad eczema and sensitive skin. My MIL bought a Yu-Be skin polish for me to try out on him and that really helps slough off the dead skin (he doesn't get more than 3 baths/week per the doctor's orders b/c that makes eczema worse) and it's not too harsh. For his diaper area, though (didn't think he'd appreciate skin polish there), I had been using Huggie's for sensitive skin, but that wasn't really helping. I FINALLY found Phisoderm Baby and that helps tremendously. And for Shampoo, he can handle J&J original shampoo. Lotion, we use Equate (WalMart brand) petroleum jelly and a prescription cream (it's the lowest steroid cream that I've been able to find). So we're all over the place. Whatever we can find that works for him, that's what we buy. The cheaper, the better as long as it works.

I always used burts bees with my two year old...but Mayah's sensitive skin can't handle it for some reason...with her we have been using the Aveeno oatmeal wash and lotion...if her skin is really broken out and I don't want to use any soap at all, I use the Aveeno oat bath (plain old powdered oatmeal)....

I use the Dollar Store brand. It's cheaper, smells about the same, and I've never had a problem with it getting in my son's eyes.

I haven't heard of QV either. I've used Aveeno, Goats Milk, Burts Bees and still love J&J! The smell is def, "Baby" and the no tears thing is awesome to!

My Mum works in a pharmacy and highly recommends QV as it's good for delicate skin. I used to like the Curash products.

I have always used J&J mostly because I love the smell and the no tears thing, but recently I have been using the QV brand they don't smell as nice but I love the results, her skin is so soft.
