The smell first off let me say is so soft and lovely like a newborn baby girl. I’m big on smells and being clean so I had to start with that. When I had my daughter it was just getting to major stores in Florida like Walmart so it was so cheap to get I was paying half of what I paid for tide. It has since then gone up in price to about $10 average however I do get the one that’s like 75fl oz. which makes about 48 loads per wash. But baby clothes are only so big so when it’s time to wash she only has like two loads (colors and whites) but for the most part it’s one loads. So for the price compared to tide I think this is a better deal considering you don’t wash babies clothes as much. It’s light and lovely in smell again and it fades out rather quickly leaving a light scent so if your worried about it being to strong for a newborn it won’t be a problem. I originally brought this when my daughter was about 2 months and she just turned months now and I just ran out. So it does stretch and last.

When I was younger one of my favorite scents was the scent of a newborn baby. I think everyone can agree that there’s just something mesmerizing about the smell of a baby. Being younger I thought that was just the smell that babies were born with, so to my surprise when I had the pleasure of doing my first load of laundry with this product I understood where these babies were getting their signature scents! Instant nostalgia! I was a little reluctant on its stain fighting power but I was very surprised at how strong this product is. Tough on stains but delicate on your baby. What more could a mom ask for! Love it and highly recommend it!

I’m not going to say I don’t like this product. I definitely liked it a lot at one time. When my daughter was just a little newborn it was perfect. It worked well if she had sensitive skin. But I’ve discovered there are detergents out there that you can use for the whole family and it just saves so much time and money! This product is also a little sensitive and high for a lot of people’s budgets. But as a start out for the “first time over protective moms”, that was me for a long time, I would definitely recommend.

I bought this because I wanted something gentle for my baby’s clothing. I did not realize it was highly fragranced. I did not expect that because most advice says to wash baby clothes without dyes or perfumes so I figured that a detergent meant specifically for babies would not have fragrance. It smells nice but that was not what I wanted. It cleaned regular clothes fine but did not remove major stains.

This was the only detergent I used when my kids were newborns. I love that it is hypoallergenic and it eased my mind tremendously! There is a notable scent, but it's not overwhelming at all. I don't think it works well by itself with removing stains though, which is why I deducted a star. I will continue purchasing this if I extend my family and even to give as a gift for a baby shower!

My mom convinced me to buy this when I was pregnant. I rolled my eyes at the price but picked it up anyway. Turns out it was a great buy because my son has eczema! This is the only detergent I use for his clothes that doesn’t further irritate his tender skin. It cleans so beautifully and really gets food stains out well. Definitely a great product.

Love Dreft for my baby’s clothing! Used it with my older son as well & there is nothing better than the fresh smell of baby clothes out of the washer when washed with this! Unfortunately it hasn’t gotten all stains out of their things on its own without using a stain lifter in conjunction with it, but otherwise I feel like it cleans effectively!

I work with kids and have to wash sheets that they sleep on and this is one laundry detergent that none of the kids have had a reaction to. It is costly to use but for my kids at work it is worth the higher price.

Little pricey but what else can I expect for a newborn specific anything, an I right? I love the baby smell but when we first started washing our clothes with this detergent, my son's skin started breaking out. He's 6 months now and we started slowly introducing the dreft back into our laundry and its fine now. But to be a product specifically formulated for newborn skin, why use any perfumes or harmful chemicals?

Is this detergent sensitive on skin? My baby is due in July and both dad and I have sensitive skin so we wanted to make sure this was the best for our little girl, just in case!

Is there a difference between the newborn formula of this detergent compared to the regular dreft?
