What Laundry Detergent Should I Use For My Baby? | 22 Moms Share Their Answers
We love doing a weekly question on Instagram! It helps us understand more and more about how others raise their children. Plus it helps the rest of us who are struggling with these same questions. So last week we asked:
What Laundry Detergent Do You Use On Your Kids Clothes?
22 Moms share their answers below!
Jennifer Makayla Nathan Says: Arm and Hammer. Always gets the stink out
jessicanpatterson Says: Dreft or seventh generation. They both are fragrance and dye free and good for my babies skin
dianaschlabach Says: Melaleuca laundry detergent for the whole family !!! All of their products are all natural and safe! Love that company!
picturealmostperfect Says: We use seventh generation, Norwex, and the FelsNaptha soap bar (greatest invention ever🙌) and they’re all fragrance free, gentle on sensitive skin and as natural as possible with still be convenient to buy.
bakers611 Says: We use Persil on all our clothes. It only takes a little bit so it lasts a long time.
jkteske Says: The target brand of sensitive detg. No fabric softener/dryer sheets. She’s got Super sensitive skin.
amyjill09I Says: use @mygreenfills on cloth diapers and homemade, 4 parts washing soda to one part bar of soap (I like using Dr. Bronner's Castile soap), on the rest of our laundry. I try to stay as natural as possible and cost effective.
lookachavarromamaI Says: cloth diaper and went through a lot of detergents before landing on seventh generation ultra power plus for the whole family. It’s on target subscription so I don’t even have to think about it
akcoutuI Says: use any free and clear/unscented on all of our clothes. Right now I’m using Tide free & clear, but I’ve used the aldi brand, All, and arm & hammer. I have semi-sensitive skin and I know babies can have more sensitive skin, so I choose to use something without scents. I’m slowly transitioning to more natural cleaning products like Method and Seventh Generation.
theameeraprimm Says: Tide. One word: enzymes.
thegcap Says: used Dreft when my little guy was a baby because it was made just for delicate skin 😊
mommatomooreboys Says: I like ALL free and clear ...I’ve used a lot and always come back to it:)! And i have dirty 3 boys💙
rebel_green Says: Did we mention we're women-owned by two moms? 😉
heatherbquinn Says: ECOS Free and Clear because the ingredients are plant based and its hypoallergenic
sheila_rosado23 Says: Seven Generation! I love because is natural and no scent !!!
sahmsg_jaimi Says: Thieves laundry soap because it does not contain any synthetic ingredients or fragrances. It is a plant-based totally natural detergent.
Dad here! I have looked at these fun little cars from day 1 of finding out we had Blakey on the way. I think it's the little boy in me that makes me want to get one and probably try to ride it myself. And I understand that it makes me little kiddish, but let's embrace that for the moment! Am I right guys?
I had the opportunity to test out the Arm’s Reach Mini 2-in-1 Ezee Co-Sleeper Bassinet recently with our precious four-month-old boy. The bassinet was tremendously easy to assemble, and it couldn’t have taken more than 10 minutes to assemble (that’s total time, with multiple interruptions from my favorite little “helping” hands).

When your baby first came out of the womb their little baby fingers were the cutest things ever! Don't get me wrong, they still are cute two months later, but they now might have changed into tiny cute daggers.
This is a common question for many parents. When should I actually start brushing my child’s teeth? And the answer certainly ranges, but 6 months seems like a good time to start! Brushing their gums isn’t a bad idea either!
What laundry detergent do you use on your kid's clothes, and why?
A little over a year and a half ago, I decided it was time to make a change in my life. I was close to 240 lbs and felt gross all the time. Molly and I had Blakey on the way, and I might have been coming out of a quarter-life crisis, who really knows? So I decided that day (October 31st, 2016 to be exact) to set a goal to run a marathon, I signed up for the 19th Flying Pig Marathon and started training... kind of.

Last week we asked you specifically about your child’s sleep and we have some answers we'd like to share with you about baby sleep habits.
It isn't always easy to find the perfect gift for your mom...the person who would do absolutely anything for you. We thought we could help you by putting together a list of items that your mother is sure to love!
We know you have excellent opinions and those opinions help others make significant decisions for their families and kiddos. So why not start asking via polls each week? This weekly activity will help us all make better-informed decisions; it's like being able to ask tons of mom friends for their quick opinions!
After 16 months of breastfeeding, I feel like I have learned a ton about what works, what doesn't work, and what items you need to have on hand for each and every nursing session. I definitely don't know everything there is to know about breastfeeding and I am not a medical professional, but after nursing for this long, I have some tips to share with you!
We do a weekly post asking questions of our friends on Instagram! Every Wednesday we do "Question Wednesday" a not so catchy title as Molly tells me. But we wanted to start doing more round-ups here to help show the answers moms are sharing with us! We hope they help you. Comment your own answers below!
As we were looking for places to stay in the St. Petersburg area, we consistently were seeing high priced hotels and condos. Sadly for a short five day, four night, family vacation we weren’t able to stomach paying seven or eight hundred dollars just for an eighth story room without a view of the ocean. Although we would have loved to be able to see the ocean from our room, we decided to look away from the beach for an affordable place to stay.

We love food, plain and simple. Food is the core of our family gatherings; it is the three times or more per day that we all celebrate tastes and flavors and it is something we enjoy passing down through our families. So you know in advance, these recipes are not family secrets, they are just recipes that we got from our grandma, parents or some other family relative.
Holidays are such a fun time to make keepsake crafts with your kiddos. This is only Blake's second Easter and she already has a handful of Easter crafts that we have saved in her keepsake box. From the Easter egg painting from the library, to the wooden Easter egg magnets, there is so much we want to save for Blake to look back on later!
The past several months I have been challenged to live in the present, finding joy in each moment. I’m finding that this is not as easy as it sounds.
We moved into our house more than two years ago. At that point, it was freshly painted and carpeted, and we decided to not customize the design much more at that time. But, when we found out that little Blakey was on the way, we knew that we needed to update her (We didn't know gender at that time) bedroom into the perfect relaxation space and beautiful nursery, just for baby. We decided early on that we'd go a bit more neutral with the walls and design as we weren't finding out the gender until birth. We did a two-tone gray wall with a wood rail to separate it.
There is no exact science to this, and I know that's probably not what you wanted to hear right out of the starting gate. But the beauty of starting this process is that it's happening during one of the most exciting times of your life. You don't need to worry too much about when you get rolling on your registry, you just need to get it in motion before...
