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.

I used this for my kids when they were newborns. It's a great and sensitive detergent, but pricey for its size. Smells good too. There are other clear, unscented detergents if money if an issue but you still want a gentle detergent for your babies clothing. After my babies outgrow newborn and I know they don't have extra sensitive skin, I use our regular detergent on their clothes. I use Dreft just as a precaution in the beginning weeks, but I do like the detergent.. Just not a fan of the price.

This smells heavenly as for baby detergent .. it works even better. I have mentioned before I use the travel size when I travel and this I use at home. It does so well washing baby clothes. And baby cloths can be really dirty with many berry straining and such and this does miracle. I was actually shocked how well it washes . I can scrub with soap on something for hours and won't get it out ones one cycle with this it cleans it of. I recommend it to mama's 😁😁

This detergent smells amazing. Like a fresh ocean breeze. It’s a bit pricey, but worth it for my baby’s fragile skin. After I wash my babies clothes and dry it... man it’s crazy soft even without a fabric softener. This detergent is very gentle and I am currently using Stage 1 for my newborn. I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a baby detergent that is safe, gentle but also gets rid of those tough stains.

Before bringing my daughter home I worried about her being allergic to certain products because sometimes I break out I lost all of her baby clothes in dreft and haven't had an issue it brings out any kind of stain and or milk and she's not had a breakout yet definitely give it a 10 out of 10 and a big thumbs up would recommend to new moms that are anxious about using other products.

Review for: Dreft Stage 1: Newborn Liquid Detergent (HEC): 40 fl oz, 25 loads more...
Love this product. It has been so helpful in so many situations, not only does it smell delightful, it works well for me (as I'm allergic to MANY detergents) and the little kiddos, but also I have used this for the older folks in nursing homes I've worked at, and they really seem to like how it makes their blankets and towels specifically smell and feel on their thinning skin.

Having a newborn is a lot of work and as a mom I want the best for my babies. I remember overthinking everything with my first from what detergent I should use to what I should feed her as a toddler. This detergent is so gentle on their baby skin and it smells amazing! I had to use it with my second born as well. They both smelled to good in their direct-washed clothes and no reaction to it.

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!

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 use Dreft for both of my babies. My eldest has eczema and the sentiviness of this product really helps her to develop less breakouts. The power of this detergent is great cause everything comes out! The smell of this detergent is so good! I use this and the Dreft stain remover spray and the clothes always come out perfect.

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!
