    Yep, we wash with normal detergent, no problems! If you're concerned you can do an extra rinse (I do that with my MCNs but not because I'm worried about the detergent on bub's skin).

    thanks, thats good to know. i was following my mils advice (she said something to do with allergies and sensitive skin) but i dont want to be buying seperate stuff (too exy) and i need to get all the washing done now. so i thought i'd check with you ladies and see what you all do.

    thanks again

    Yep you certainly can, but everywhere I have read has recommended only using half the amount of detergent so the clothes don't get that "clean chemical" smell... As apparently less that smell the better
