Hello. Needing a little recommendations. I've been using Tesco Love Baby Soap to top and tail my DD with since 4 weeks old ( she had new born baby acne so was adviced to use soap ). Now Tesco has stopped producing this soap and my stash has almost gone. My DD is 16 months old now. I'm wondering what I can use to replace it. What do you use to top and tail your little ones?

Thank You

Do you still top and tail a 16 month old? I'm confused.

Surely you can use any baby wash you like? Is there something specific that meant you used the tesco one?

As a child and still now I'm allergic to all except 1 wash product in my lower area and I've just been playing it safe in case DD is the same. I've not looked into other baby washes yet especially for the more sensitive areas and I'm just wondering what people use on their little ones bits. Yes I still top and tail in mornings and before evening bath time. I've never thought about any other way as she doesn't stand alone yet. When she starts standing unaided I'll change to wash clothes etc

I never used it. Baby wipes were good enough here tbh

Water wipes might be of interest to you then, as they are literally just water and a wipe. Or reusable ones like Cheeky wipes, instead of a wash cloth.

It's a long time since mine were babies!

But if you're looking for gentle products, I suggest trying either Simple or Waitrose-own Pure ranges.

Child's Farm do some lovely bath stuff, shampoo and conditioner which we use for ds who has had really bad eczema in the past and still has quite sensitive skin. I just use asda wipes for a quick face wipe in the morning and bath at night-I haven't top and tailed since he was about 3 months oldblush.
