Braxton has a very delicate skin I have a hard time finding soap to us for him. Lately, I was using the Johnson's bubble bath and three days later I noticed a lot of red spots around his eyes, I feel so bad. Now I am using the cetaphil cleanser he is not allergic to it but I am not happy the result hygiene wise. Any advice out there?

Yes, there are other products you can use. Unforunately, many store bought products contain many chemicals that aren't good for our children. I hope your little one gets better. Below is a link that has more information about Johnson's harsh ingredients.

I use safer products in my home, I'm glad I don't have to worry about having any harsh chemicals in my home.

Another product that you can find at the local health food store is called Dr. Bronners pure castile Magic Soap. My children and I have extremely sensitive skin and I couldn't use anything but water on them until I found this stuff. They have one that is specifically for sensitive skin and babies but it's gentle enough for us that we are able to use the scented ones. Our favorites are citrus and rose. The one thing you do need to be cautious about is that it's not tear free. Good luck www.drbronner.com

My daughter had eczema as an infant and nothing in the mainstream stores seemed to work, even Burtsbee's, which was suprising. I found www.naturesbabyorganics.com that offers natural, organic, products and decided to give them a try. My daughter's skin cleared up within days. It has a great smell, my favorite is Vanilla-Tangerine. It is a little expensive but worth it. If you go to their website, you can type in your address to see if you can find a store near you that carries their products. Otherwise, you can purchase it directly from them online.

Hello Cris....

my girl - thanks God- have not being allergic to anything (so far), but I have been allergic to everythign all my life.... my solution : "water-it-down"..... basically, whatever you decide to use, or have available, add water to it.... I love Victorias Secret "Sweet Temptation", but I can't use it if I don't add at least 1/3 of water to the bottle....

I also have to change frequently soaps, so I have at least 2 or 3 soaps in the bathroom at all times, and don't use the same one 2 days in a row....

Aveeno products are wonderful.....

Ali, I used to work for Arbonne (in the call center, not as a rep) and so I got nice discounts on the Arbonne baby stuff (it's usually pretty expensive). But personally, I hated it! I even got some free from my boss for my baby shower and I ended up throwing it away. But I do have friends who swear by their sunscreen.

I like the aveeno creamy baby wash. I like the way it smells and the clean effect. I also like the organic soap I bought at wal-greens. it is very gentle on my skin and the baby's skin. I hope this helps.

I use Cetaphil for my daughter's face, but I just used the Dove bath bar for sensitive skin when she was a baby with excema, and it worked great for us.

Avoid synthetic chemicals/fragrances. Try your local health food or organic store, they should have a good range of options, even if it's not labelled 'baby'. I use MooGoo Milk Wash on my DD (www.moogoo.com.au), it's fantastic as unfortunately she inherited mummy's sensitive skin.

Avoid anything with SLS, Sodium Laureth or Laurel Sulphate. Its an agent that creates the bubbles and is drying and irritaing to sensitive skin. Also avoid products with 'fragrance or parfum' listed as it is synthetic and can be irritating. If it is scented read the label and find out if the scent is from a natural oil - that is fine. For my baby (13 months) I have only been using Weleda's Calendula baby wash. It is pricy and usually in a health food store but is super gentle. For my 3 yr old I use Kiss My Face kids shampoo & body wash, also gentle.
