    As long as it is Non-Bio and fragrance free they're all pretty much the same from cheaper brands to higher end. Most supermarket branded ones are actually made in the same factory as the higher end brands.

    Non bio as it doesn't have any enzymes to irritate delicate skin :)

    I mix it up abit, get whatever is on offer at the time x

    Aldi has some of their mamia non bio baby brand in their last baby event. Not sure of they r re stocking again Thurs when event is back on.
    It smells gorgeous though and less than half the price of fairy!
    So i bought a few of them.

    But asda had a huge box of fairy powder on offer so also grabbed that lol..
    Hoping thatll do me for a little while and its all about 200 washes with what ive bought :shock: LOL!!! But i tend to always add an extra scoop or cup of liquid im terrible! X

    I use Surcare non-bio, one for sensitive skin/eczema (since partner and I both have eczema, and I'm sure LO will probably inherit it!) It has no scent though, but I don't know if that's an important factor for you! ;)

    Fairy non bio powder & fairy conditioner or comfort pure. I have always used these on my own sensitive skin (to the point I have to take a pillowcase washed in fairy if I go to hotel etc or I wake up with a rash on my face!) and my babies & not had any problems x

    You are not meant to use non bio anymore. It's changed. Apparently if you use non bio then the babies will be allergic to the normal one later in life. I used normal washing powder with my daughter and have had no problems xx
