    Default Baby bath products

    I'm looking to stock up on bath wash products before bubs arrives, can anyone recommend a brand? I know I don't want to use Johnson and Johnson, does anyone have any opinions on the Gaia and/or Purity Sensitive (Natures Organics) brands? Or any others you recommend?

    I heard for the first few months using just water is good/better for bubs?
    After that I suggest the body shop baby range. ^___^
    I wouldn't use Johnson and Johnson, they use heaps of chemicals and stuff that I wouldn't on my skin let alone my baby's.

    I used nothing more than water and the odd drop of olive or almond oil for the first few months.
    After that it was a drop or 2 of the Gaia bath wash.

    Same here, water and olive oil. A couple of times that she's been particularly feral I've used a tiny bit of Gaia.

    Hi, my bub is 6 weeks old and I planned on just using water too. When we left the hospital though she had a really bad rash all over and even had little pimply type spots, she had never been bathed at this stage. They called the head midwife to check it out and she said it looks like a normal rash newborns get but she has it pretty bad and it probably means she will have very sensitive skin. But at home I used water for the first few baths then tried a drop of Gaia in the water and since using the Gaia her skin is beautiful. It even seems that when I don't use it she gets the pimply milk rash again?!?!
    I was all for using just water but her skin is loving a bit of the Gaia in the water.
    Sorry to ramble, haha

    Just water.

    The first time I did use anything DS broke out in eczema. Their skin doesn't need anything else and most things strip their skin of the natural oils.
