Best Baby Soaps, Shampoos And Washes

You want to use nothing but the best on baby. But with that huge wall of products at the store, it’s hard to know which baby shampoo and body wash to pick. These tried-and-true bath products are Bumpie-tested and approved.

Skinfix Gentle Body Wash

If your baby's skin or scalp is super sensitive, bath time is probably the opposite of soothing for baby and you. Skinfix's two-in-one mild cleanser can alleviate that stress. It's botanical-based ingredients are fragrance-free, sulfate-free, and best of all, tear-free to help soothe eczema flare-ups.
