    Default Dove

    Just wondering if anyone uses Dove on their baby?
    I don't really want to use any Johnson's etc...was thinking of using dove moisturing bar, it's all I use on my sensitive skin.

    I've always subscribed to the theory: `never put anything on your baby's skin that you wouldn't eat'

    Meaning babies have sensitive skin (and will generally not get dirty enough to warrant the use of soap) -I used olive oil with my babies.

    I never used anything but water on DS as a baby. Now I occasionally use QV oil. Products can strip their skin of essential oils.

    Default Re: Dove

    My baby bathes in eau du Older Brother so, sometimes some gaia bath wash, sometimes a bit of coconut oil, sometimes just water. But most probably some wee too

    Default Dove

    I actually use moo goo facial cleansing oil (the dry skin one) on my DD - it leaves her skin so soft and hydrated. It's basically a mix of jojoba and other lovely oils.

    Default Dove

    Johnsons might smell good, but has lots of chemicals etc bad for skin
