The whole reason I started making soap for our family was because I finally noticed the ingredients on the back of the baby wash that I had always used. I was shocked to find that it was made with petroleum based chemicals and other chemicals I couldn't pronounce. I decided then and there to make my own natural soap that would be good for my children's skin.
I used the Organic Castile on my babies until they were about 2 months old. Then I switched them to the Purity until they were about 6 months. My children didn't have any skin issues, so after 6 months they used whatever soap their older siblings were using in the tub. I used the soap on their hair as well as on their skin.
Some babies, depending on their skin, need to stick with the unscented (purity) soap. Some babies are able to use scented soaps. You should always test the soap on a small part of your baby's or child's skin (especially if they have skin sensitivities) to see how they react.
We always recommend washing your baby's clothes, sheets, towels, and blankets in the laundry soap because it rinses completely clean and won't leave any chemicals behind to irritate your baby's skin.
If you need to follow-up with a lotion (most babies don't), we also recommend the unscented lotion til they are at least 6-12 months old. Many people are tempted to want their babies to smell like baby powder, but it's best for their skin to avoid scent until they are older.
Here are some testimonials from people who have used Goat Milk Stuff soaps on their baby's skin. Below that you will find the items we recommend for babies.
"Dear Jonas Family, Thank you so much for making such wonderful products for my sweet baby boy. He suffered from excema and dry scalp and we tried several products before finally finding you. Once we started using the Purity soap and the goat milk shampoo bar all that vanished. That was about a year ago and we're still using your products and he's still excema free! Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU! Many blessings, "
"Once again GMS saves the day! Purity worked wonders with my son's sensitive baby skin and now I have a new one month old daughter with similar skin. We're dealing with some baby acne right now and after two days of using purity soap it's almost cleared up. Thank you Jonas family!!!"

I will be a life long customer!!! OH and the lotion tubs are the B.O.M.B. Thanks for the great service and products!!"
"Goat milk soap has done WONDERS for my daughters skin!! She is 17 months now. I've been using the traditional soaps like Baby Aveeno, Shea Moisture Baby, but her skin would always be dry before the end of the day. I've been using the Oatmeal Milk and Honey Soap for about 2 months and there has been such a dramatic transformation in her skin. It is so soft! Even the days without full baths it remains soft! I will DEFINITELY be repurchasing this for her! Great products!!!!"
