I've been given all this J&J stuff for my baby by friends but now that I'm a natural ingredients psycho I feel weird putting these chemicals on my baby, especially if the body wash will be used on her head and her delicate hair, I now know how harmful SLSs are for people and now this will be used for baby's hair so I'm just wondering what do I do with all of these??

Do you use these on your newborns since becoming CG? Or did you find alternatives for your child?

    I'd donate them to a shelter myself. I found that some of the Aveeno has ingredients I do not wish to use either.
    I use California Baby products. I use the Super Sensitive wash as face wash and the Calming wash as shower gel. I gave my DIL a bundle of them when my granddaughter was born.
    Target carries some of the line. Whole Foods does as well.
    I also get some things from online places like Vitacost and luckyvitamin.com

    I usually use gaia baby but noticed more natural and organic products are being released at our local Coles and Woolworth's so its very convenient but I feel really bad throwing all these away..

    I might just see how I can use them on me or on some household stuff.. thanks though..

    FYI lots of common "natural ingredients" are just skin irritants. A good rule of thumb is, the fewer ingredients, the better.

    my oldest daughter was allergic to johnson and johnson baby products, so i used burt's bees baby product on her. with DD2 i was worried that she would have sensitive skin like her sister (i was right) so i skipped right to burt's bees, california baby, and episcencial products.
