I bought baby All to wash all of her newborn stuff in, but now I just use regular detergent after we found her skin is not sensitive. It's way cheaper then dreft and smells nice too!

We use Arm & Hammer sensitive skin. With most babies sensitive skin detergents are fine. To me it was not worth the extra money to buy baby detergent and I have never had a problem.

I've been using baby oxiclean. It's concentrated so one bottle (about 4$) last me 3-6 months. IT works wonders on stains 8O . Last night it took out a 5 month old formula stain 8O 8O, I was storing Jenna's preemie clothes 'for next time' when I noticed the stain. I've also tried Dreft and its nice but its way more expensive. The only problem with baby oxiclean is finding stores that sell it. I buy mine a few bottles at a time whenever Big Lots has it in stock. I think BRU sells it too.

We use environmentally friendly detergent, with no additives so it's safe to use with cloth diapers and doesn't build up too much.

Baby All for us...Dreft is just too darn expensive. However, as soon as this bottle is done I'm just going to use regular detergent since he isn't showing any allergies. The Baby All smells pretty much the same as Dreft anyway IMO.

With my DD I used Dreft and thought it was great. That was 6 yrs ago.

Now with DS I have a front loader machine and they don't make a high efficiency version of Dreft so I use Tide Free and Clear HE. I highly recommend this detergent over Dreft. I have switched to the regular high efficiency Tide for his clothes now as he's showing no signs of any allergic reactions. I have NOT ONE formula stain on anything of his. It's awesome.

From what I've heard about Ivory Snow is not to use it. Apparently it reduces the flame retardency in clothing. So if you're one to use the polyester pajamas for your child you may want to consider that. I use cotton both of my kids sweat too darn much for that hot polyester.

I haven't used the baby soaps, but I will say that I got a really terrible bladder infection after using the All Free & Clear.

I went to the doctor and one of the first things she asked me was if I had been in a hot tub or if I recently changed my laundry soap. Dr said A LOT of her patients have experienced bladder infections and UTIs after using the All Free & Clear. Apparently, it doesn't rinse out of clothes as easily as other soaps, so if you are sensitive and prone to UTIs, I might try something else.

Some people love it, but it gave me issues!

We are using Method Baby. It smells awesome and I think it cost slightly less than Dreft. They sell it at BRU!

Fortunately no one in our family has sensitive skin so we just use Kirkland (Costco's brand) powder because it's the cheapest and I still like the smell. I also use it on the CDs and don't have big issues with build up. I strip them every few months. I'm not sure if that's more than what most people do, but it doesn't seem excessive to me.

I only used Dreft with DS for the first month or so because it was given to me as a baby shower gift. I've never bought expensive baby detergent.
