I washed all my baby girls clothes in this before she was born. I love how light the scent is but it last a long time. My husband loves sleeping on her boppy after I’ve washed it in this. It is a little pricey but when you can put your Baby’s clothes on with no worries of a rash because of harmful chemicals other detergent use, that peace of mind is better than the 9 dollars you spend on this.

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.

Me and my baby both have really sensitive skin. I personally can't use any laundry detergent unless it's unscented and all natural. But this one is inexpensive and doesn't cause any breakouts on me or baby! Plus it makes me smell like him where ever I go

This is my absolute favorite laundry detergent of all time. The smell is amazing and natural. I get compliments everywhere I go on the scent. Furthermore, it is hypoallergenic and you can tell just from looking at the detergent that it’s natural.

This detergent is great to use for washing all things baby. It smells really good and does great on getting everything clean and smelling fresh. The only problem I have with it is that it is expensive. Other than that it’s great!

This is my go to laundry detergent for my@baby boy. He had eczema so bad when he was born and his skin was red patchy flaky and irritated. We bought this laundry soap after using ALL and his skin cleared completely up

This was recommended by my pediatrician. It had a really pleasant smell but it wasn't special. It didn't help my baby with her eczema. It didn't make it worse but it  didn't really add to her getting better.

I never use anything else for my newborns. It protects their little bodies from dyes and perfumes found in our regular detergent. It is very pricey, but I feel it’s worth the price tag to keep my babies safe.

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!
