Dr bronners liquid Castile soap. It may seem expensive but a little goes a long way. Clean out an old soap dispenser put in 1-2 tbs of soap and fill the rest with water. It is perfect for shampoo and body wash for your LO.
As for lotion you can use just unrefined, coldpressed coconut oil. It is a bit more oily but it is absorbs fast. You could also try Hugo's Naturals.

Don't know where you live, but here in Europe Weleda & Lavera have reasonably priced products. You can also just use less products, I use no soap and shampoo only very rarely (probably 4 or 5 times since DD is born, she's 20 months now). Or thin them down with water. Like this they will last much longer.

I also almost never use soap or lotion. It's the cheapest option!

Anyone know how safe the j& j natural line is?

Or babyganics?

I third Dr. Bronners and coconut oil! They seem expensive to buy, but you use such a small amount at a time that they last forever! I'm sure my one bottle of Dr. Bronners will last at least a year...maybe more!

I just got a bar of goat milk soap. (it's from Goat Milk Stuff, made in my state on a family goat farm and it's completely natural!) It cost about 6 bucks but again, it will last a long time.

A lot of natural or organic stuff is expensive, but my advice is to use less. Babies don't get that dirty and just plain water does the trick between baths.

As for J&J Naturals, it's no better than the original. Just filled with stuff you don't want to put on your baby. I'd steer clear.

There's nothing natural about J&J Natural stuff. It's just marketing and it's still terrible stuff. (And so is most shampoo, soap, etc, that is for adults)

I too use dr bronners! Baby uses the baby mild, I use the lavender and daddy uses the citrus :) ya were a fan! I love how easily it rinses out of Los hair! I use coconut oil on her bum and around her mouth ( it's always so dry) but I use live clean lotion and it smells so good!!

I like weleda and burt's bees. I just ordered a miamoo travel kit which is pretty good value and has great reviews. My lo spits up sooooo much (of real food too) that she gets quite smelly and plain water doesn't cut it!

Can't stand the smell of dr brooners or Castile soap. We use Babyganics and mostly the Honest company products after doing the math and comparison to other organic natural lines it's not as expensive as I first thought.

@gypsydawn I dilute Doc Bronners a lot. I put a tiny amount in an old shampoo bottle and fill it up with water. Then I squirt a tiny amount of the diluted solution into the bath water. It's really strong so a little goes a long way.
