Default Detergent for infant clothing

We use a very natural, dye free detergent because my husband has very sensitive skin (none of that super nice smelling stuff for us, alas!).

So I assumed I would keep on using the same thing to wash the clothes of my baby as well. But my friend, who doesn't have a child herself, insists that regular detergents are toxic to babies and I should make my own or buy one from a health food store. I'm all for protecting my baby but is this really necessary?

I don't think so. The detergent a lot of people turn to is Dreft, which is dye-free and fragrance-free. But it can be expensive and you can use any dye-free and fragrance-free detergent. We did use Dreft when our 1st was born, but we had received some as a gift. After that I switched to the Target brand of Dreft, much cheaper, lol. And now we use All Free & Clear for the whole family.

I don't think so. We use dreft however just because I'm paranoid lol. But as long as its fragrance and dye free it should be fine.
