    so my midwife was right. She advised against Johnson & Johnson products, but I thought;

    - would anything be sold that was harmful to babies?
    - parents have been using J&J for years and years with no issues!!

    so I bath her in Bedtime baby bath, and use the bedtime no tears shampoo.

    WELL NOT ANY BLOODY MORE!! all getting binned pronto....

    they have finally admitted that their products are NOT SAFE and contain CANCER giving
    formaldehyde

    The article says 'hopefully other big brands will follow' in removing the chemical. So how would we know all the other brands don't contain it?

    Also there doesn't seem to be any proof the chemical causes cancer. Not saying it doesn't, but perhaps other products are just as bad?

    Oh wow, thanks for sharing!
    Goes to show how these big corporations fool us. I rarely trust these companies and its disgusting they sell this kind of stuff for babies.

    Anybody know of any other products that are 'safe' to use? That is shocking that they are allowed to hide stuff like that, all products should be clearly labelled with ingredients so people can make informed decisions as to whether to buy something or not...

    It was in 2012 they admitted it. They said the chemicals will be phased out of baby products by end of 2013, and adult by 2015

    I bought loads when I was pregnant. And who knows how long that sat in shelves and store warehouse for?

    To be honest I've always found Johnson's stuff to be too harsh for my son's skin so don't use it anyway. He has eczema and my gp told me to never use it as its 'horrible stuff and full of chemicals'! I'm pretty sure other brands also have nasty chemicals in them too though, in fact I'm going to check the label of the infacare I use on DS as although it is gentle on his skin who knows what could be hiding in there!

    I really don't know what other things are safe. Burts bees is good, but am not keen on the honey smelling shampoo. Can't get a bit sickly.

    Aveeno is even made by Johnsons and Johnsons!

    If anyone knows of other natural organic baby care ranges, please let us know! X
