    Cleansing liquid for baths for newborns

    What type of cleansing liquid for baths for newborns do people recommend? There are so many brands out there - Kiehls, Mustela, Johnson and Johnson, Sebamed, etc. etc., that I don't know which one to choose! I would like to choose the mildest one possible for sensitive skin because I have a history of excema and am afraid that my newborn will be prone to it too. Thanks!

    I also have a history of excema and dry skin, but for my newborn I don't use anything, just water. Newborns don't get dirty so I don't think there is any need for anything, maybe some baby shampoo if they have alot of hair. My LO is now 2 months and I'm still not using anything.

    If you want to use something try the organic brands like Green Baby (available at Mother Organic), Sanctum or Eco Store available at Bumps to Babes. These will have less chemicals which could irritate the skin.

    I don't have any first hand experience with what you asked. But My friend told me that she uses Sebamed for her daughter who has very sensitive skin ( had rash easily and quite often). She said it works better than J&J. The only other brand that she tried.

    So, I am leaning towards using Sebamed with my new born who comes in June.

    I used just water at first and then Oilatum which is a soap free, emollient - very good for excema and sensitive skin. Ecobaby do a nice 'sleepy time' wash with lavender also.
