Use baby shampoo. Babies heads are too tender for the ingredients in regular shampoo.

You really should use a non-toxic laundry soap. Normal household detergents have chemicals in them that is in contact with your baby's skin all the time, which in turn can give your baby's skin and respiratory system a work out and maybe a reaction to. Use non-toxic soaps and your baby will love you for it!!!
