Hello all! Its my first pregnancy and I'm trying to get my head around everything.
Can anyone tell me which fabric conditioner I ought to use on my babies clothes (or am I supposed to use one at all??!)
So hard to know which one to choose and why - how did you go about it?
Any thoughts hugely appreciated.

Entirely up to you. I use comfort pure.

Comfort Pure here too, as is non-bio.

its not necessary

use fairy washing powder for babies skin.

I used Comfort Pure but even that affected DD's skin and she came out in a spotty rash. Now I put white distilled vinegar and lavedner oil in her nappy wash and occassionally in with her clothes/bedding too. The vinegar softens and the oil smells nice

Fairy or Comfort Pure for me too.

Steer clear of chemical crap as much as poss.
They don't need anything in their baths either and i will personally come and shoot you if your use that pink gloop known as 'baby lotion.'

But Moondog, how do you get them clean if you can't use anything at bathtime?

I know current advice is not to use anything, but personally I found plain water pretty useless at keeping dd clean

Ecover - no nasties in it.

Blimey, I never even thought about using fabric conditioner...more of an excema risk, I thought
(And don't use anything in baths still, and ds is 3 1/2 ... he manages to get fairly clean...
