Is it necessary to buy the laundry detergent geared toward infant clothing or is regular detergent alright? I'm sure the sensitive soap is always a plus, but if I use the regular kind, do you think my baby will get a rash?

You don't have to use Dreft but it's advisable to use something free of perfumes and dyes for the first couple of months.

I used my regualr detergent (dd is 3 mos, 2 weeks). I asked my doctor and its actually rare to get rashes, babies just have sensitive skin. I say try yours and if baby gets rash, get the baby detergent.
