    You can use the normal washing powders just use half as much. I use sensitive washing powder but I still didn't use a full scoop on my sons clothes until he was 6 months as he has sensitive skin. I have used normal washing powder as well and he had no reaction to it I just prefer the smell of the sensitive one I get

    Baby's skin is more sensitive. DS has eczema and his trigger is washing powder. I only use Eco Store, and have no issues.

    Lux Flakes are a popular option, but you can't use them in front loaders, so I haven't tried. Even "sensitive" versions of regular powders irritate DS.

    I'd definitely recommend Eco Store

    I just use normal detergent, the same stuff I wash my clothes with (the planet ark powder...Aware?).
