    Default Washing baby clothes

    Hi all, I'm almost 33 weeks and want to start washing baby clothes so that I can get my bags ready. I know baby's have sensitive skin is there any washing powder that I should be using for baby's clothes or can i use any brand thats sensitive? Thanks

    All depends on your personal ethos. Me, I used the sensitive natural ones.... After I did more reading and got more "hippy" i stopped all commercial powders/liquids and used soap nuts instead.

    Only now at 5 years old have I switched back to commercial "green" powder.

    Some people use whatever... Some are a bit more careful. It's up to you.

    I used some sensitive liquid. I couldn't tell you which as my mum bought it just for bubs clothes. I will be using omo sensitive when it runs out. Can't tell you if it is fine for bub yet as I'm still pregnant. But when my step daughter was 1 I used omo sensitive and she didn't react. It's what I have to use

    With both dd's I just used regular Omo. Dd2 has sensitive skin and has a little bit of eczema so then I switched to sensitive Omo (DH has eczema so was hereditary) we have had no issue

    I use the planet ark sensitive as it's a bit more environmentally friendly.

    I use earth choice. No problems EXCEPT with her cloth nappies she had a really awful rash for ages. I now wash her nappies in just a hot wash and hang them in the sun and they are perfect. But no problems using the earth choice liquid on her clothes, their fabric softener smells lovely too
