    Default When can we stop using "baby" wash?

    As the topic says, when can we stop using baby products, I have 2 toddlers close to 2 & 4 years of age and I'm just over the baby washes. I would like to use what I use.... Is it too strong for them you think?

    Thank you

    Why don't you just use something like cetaphil etc that are gentle yet not 'baby'.

    I would definitely not use adult washes tbh. But then again I prefer the gentler ones for me too

    I still use a all natural baby wash on my almost 2 year old. My 5 year old uses what I do - regular soap and then a more natural shampoo & conditioner.

    It depends what u use, whatever u use find something all natural or organic on them. A lot of stuff is so full of nasty crap. Sukin are a good inexpensive brand - no parabens, glycol's, sodium laurel sulphates etc

    Adult washes are fine if the ingredients aren't full of chemicals. I would think cetaphil wouldn't be great.

    I think I stopped with the 'baby' washes when my DS was around 3. I ran out of it completely so I just squirted some normal body wash in the bath and it was fine.

    Now I just use whatever body wash we have on hand for DS as well.

    Why would cetaphil be a problem?

    I use Dermaveen for myself and DSS, and now use it for DD (2 weeks).
    DSD likes my fragrant "treat" washes but other than that uses oatmeal soap, which her dad uses. H uses the oatmeal soap on DD sometimes.

    Due to mine and my kids dry skin, we all use a gentle, soap free wash such as QV or Alpha Keri, Cetaphil etc. DD is 3 and I still use baby shampoo on her hair but as it's getting longer I'll occasionally use adult conditioner as well to combat the knots.

    I'm currently using an emu oil body moisturiser on her as well, first time we tried it and it's great.
