Clearly written by someone who's baby does not have sensitive skin.  While scented products may be all natural, they are not so good for the skin.  I prefer Dr. Bronners Baby Mild Liquid Soap.

I washed my baby in water. I still do (he's five!).  I also have never, ever bathed him every day. He has very sensitive skin, and baths dry it out - especially if there is soap involved! I don't think it's necessary or healthy to bathe every day - it's just our culture that says we must. 

When we need something more than water, I use vinegar and/or baking soda, diluted with water. These days he uses a Knotty Boy shampoo bar for his head. And when his skin gets in trouble, I throw a pantyhose foot, filled with oat flour and tied in a knot, into the bath with him - works wonders for his eczema!!!

And ditto Mrs Seb!! The FIRST thing you can do for baby's sensitive skin is go without any added stuff like fragrance or color!!!

I was wondering the same thing, Mrs. Seb.  I have a baby with REAL sensitive skin and I have found Mustela works well for him :).  Aveeno may have been good, but he's allergic to oats, so nope :/.  And anything scented is NO GO!  I got Mustela lotion and it was scented and ruined his skin :/.  I found babyganics cream for excema!  I want some of htat in my stocking for Christmas, it felt so good on my dry hands :)

I like Live Clean Baby and the Body Shop Burriti Baby products. Live Clean is sulfate, phlatalate and paraben free...Body Shop's line is advertised as "no nasties", and is great for sensitive skin (but it is scented).

I will use organic almond oil to bathe my little one in. It's a common thing to use in Germany for little ones. The best benefit is you don't need lotion after the bath :).
