Are there any considerations when buying baby laundry and cleaning products for the safety of my baby?
I'm a first time mother and I have heard that it's important to choose the right laundry and cleaning product for the safety of my baby. Are there any special considerations I should have?
Thank you for the question. It is important to choose the correct laundry detergent for your child, especially if he or she has eczema or sensitive skin.
Choose detergents that are fragrance-free and hypoallergenic as these reduce the tendency to irritate the skin. There are some laundry detergents that are specially formulated for eczema prone skin.
It is also important to ensure that the detergents are thoroughly rinsed off from the clothes to minimize their contact on the skin.
