Default Dr. Bronner's?

I got some Dr. Bronner's liquid castille soap - the "baby mild" variety (Dr. Bronner's Magic Soaps Retail Store: Baby Mild Liquid Soap - 32 oz.) and was wondering if I can use it the same way baby shampoo/body wash is used without worrying about hurting baby's eyes/delicate skin. I should probably just use it on myself and see how it works for me, but was wondering if anyone's used it on their baby here and how it worked out.

Any experience?

It's probably mild enough, but it will sting a baby's eyes. Unless a soap distinctly says "no more tears" or something to that effect, don't assume it won't sting just because it says "baby" on the label.

What RCW said. I've used it on my kids before and it is a gentle soap but I don't think it's tear free.

Blame it on the cell phone...

You will have ni regrets with using this soap as long as you don't get it in their eyes. It's mild and very moisturizing. I use it everyday myself and cannot imagine ever going back to regular body washes or soap (I love, love, love the hemp rose).

Just have to say...

Don't think you can keep soap out of baby's eyes. Sooner or later, no matter how careful you are, any soap WILL get in, and you will have a very upset and crying baby/toddler/child. I stuck to No-More-Tears types of soaps and shampoos for that reason. Even after my kids were older and doing their own baths and showers, I still bought them NMT products.

It is very hard to keep soap out of a wiggly baby/toddler's face. Even thiugh they aren't natural they are very mild. NMT are great.
