I am pregnant and not keen on the thought of using products on my baby that are harsh or have parabans or SLSs in. The only product I have found like this is welleda baby, but is is £10 a bottle!!!

Does anyone know of gentle products that aren't expensive?

Thanks x

I agree have used Weleda before and Burts Bees but so expensive. I'm now using Halos and Horns much cheaper I think it's widely available I got in tesco or boots.

I wouldn't bother using anything but water for the first few months, there's no need.

There are a few independent places that sell natural children's products; purenuffstuff in Cornwall (they have a website) and I think Child's Farm is very gentle. I don't think we used anything much before six months though; water was adequate.

Halo and horns is very good.

Wow thank you, I have just had a look its like £8 cheaper than a bottle from weleda. So many baby products yet so many chemicals wow. However Its a bit far off yet though I was wondering out of curiously x

Weleda is good but very pricy, although if you keep an eye out, boots often have it on 3 for 2.

We use earth friendly baby here. The first 6-12 months you don't need to use any anyway, then just a tiny bit. We have prob brought only 3 bottle of the shampoo/ wash combo since ds1 was born 5 years ago!

We used water only until 2 yrs, but DD was quite slow to grow hair.
