    Default Washing baby clothes / bedding

    I'm almost due with my first bub, and ppl have been giving me gifts of new clothes, muslins, linen etc for months. I've been progressively washing everything as i go with our usual washing products (biozet, sard, fabric softener).
    My MIL is helping me out a fair bit and asked what i'm washing with.
    It didn't occur to me to use anything different, unless when bub arrives he has sensitive skin....
    Is it just the norm to wash bubs items separately with a different product? If so, what do you use?
    Ta.

    I wash ours all together but I use sensitive stuff anyway because my 3 yr old gets eczema.

    I only seperate now when DP has too many clothes because his are generally dirtier from work/soccer.

    The first 6 months of DS's life, I used a liquid laundry washfor babies with sensitive skin.. I don't remember what it was called.. As he got older, I washed his clothes with ours so we just used normal laundry powder.

    I just use regular sensitive wash, we are washing separately at the moment because hubby bought the pod capsule things and I don't wasn't to wash her clothes in them.

    The sard and fabric softener are more likely to cause irritation as they leave a residue on the clothes. I just do an extra rinse cycle on dd's clothes and it stops them being crunchy.

    I have washed all of bubbys stuff with our normal washing powder. I am allergic to most brands of washing powder so I think its safer that I use the same one so I dont get a rash from simply holding my baby while its wearing something washed in different powder.
    I washed DS baby stuff with the same powder we used and he never had skin issues.
