This is a really random question...When did you stop washing your baby's clothes in dreft or other baby/sensitive laundry detergent and start washing with regular detergent? My LO is almost 5 months old and I still wash with dreft but I was just curious when it's ok to start washing with regular detergent.

As soon as I finished the first bottle of Dreft I switched to All free & clear (which I then used on everyone's laundry)

I did use regular detergent from day 1 and my LO never had an issue.

Honestly as soon as I ran out of the first dreft bottle I used regular detergent. My son only showed signs of irration when he was 1-2 months old. After that he seemed less sensitive.

You can switch anytime but just make sure baby's skin isn't irritated

I never used it. Just always bought something that wasn't scented. He's 1 now and I don't even bother.

I have always washed my husbands and mine with all free and clear so when baby was born we continued with that. I would recommend using anything free and clear until at least 1 to make sure they aren't too sensitive to others

I have always used regular laundry detergent with LO's clothes, even the clothes I got from his baby shower! Never had an issue. :)

I used it until she was almost 3 because she has sensitive skin. Now I use All Free & Clear because the Dreft won't get the stains out.

I started using All free & clear when my dd was born. I'm thinking about switching though (now 16 months). I really miss the fresh clothes smell that was my reward for doing laundry

I never did. From day 1 I have been washing in our regular detergent. I make my own laundry detergent. But I decided not to use the speciality detergents for my LO unless I found he had a reaction and needed it. So far so good I have even used fabric softener on some of his and he's fine. 6 months old by the way

I only had a sample so when I first washed my babies clothes then I watched for a reaction and I just use regular from probably week one.
