My toddler is allergic to peanuts, eggs, cotton fluff and dog/cat fur. My son’s allergy doctor told me that he should bathe with unscented soap and use unscented shampoo and that we should not use scented fabric conditioner. Perfume is not allowed either. She recommended Dove soap or Perla. I used Dove soap on him and he did not develop any reactions towards it. He smelled good even after a whole day of playing. However, I wanted to use something else that’s specifically made for babies. Since I also have a one-month-old baby, I wanted to use a product that both of them can share.
My husband bought the Aveeno Baby Cleansing Therapy Moisturizing Wash from the Johnson & Johnson store (since he works there) and I tried it on my two children. It is quite expensive at Php 300+ for 236ml (8 fl. oz) but I think it’s worth it. A little goes a long way! The consistency is creamy, and it you only need to use one to two squirts to clean the entire face and body. I also use it as a shampoo. I also like that it is fragrance-free, dye-free, and alcohol-free.
It moisturizes as well, so I did not need to put lotion on my toddler’s skin (which is a good thing, since he’s not allowed to have lotion either). This product is Made in the USA, so it is assumed to be a high-quality product. It also claims to be pediatrician recommended and it is accepted by the National Eczema Association. I also use this on my one-month-old baby, and it is gentle enough on his delicate skin.
Would I recommend it? Yes. Would I repurchase? Yes!
Have you tried this Aveeno product, mommas? What do you think of it?
