so long as it's not giving her a reaction it's fine

the real q is why would you need too - she's too small to crawl around getting grubby and she's not eating anything except milk, which doesn't stain. Save your money till she's getting covered in carrot / mud / paint.

(and there's no need to do a separate 'baby wash' either - just stick her stuff in with your clothes. Use nonbio for everything if you're worried but there's normally no problem with it)

I didnt even use non-bio for my lo's after the first few weeks. Their clothes go in with ours and are all washed with biological powder/liquid. I have never had problems with their skin.

Like the others, I think it's fine as long as baby's skin isn't reacting. However, it might not be necessary in every wash. I've found I get good results if I just soak the pooey clothes (also have small baby) in vanish before adding them to normal wash using non-bio.
