I have sensitive skin and I know that babies have sensitive skin. I used dreft for my babies clothes. One thing I wish I had done though...don't wash them ALL right off....my dd was born early. so a lot of her clothes were the wrong season...I could have traded them in or passed them off to someone else if I had left tags on them! anyway they did go to family later. but there were some things never worn by my daughter that hung in her closet. lol. I still try to wash everything before anyone wears it--but sometimes on vacation etc. it can't happen. I am glad I did wash them for the sensitive skin stuff.
