All I hear from anyone is Johnson and Johnson is full of poison.. Along with Aveeno Baby. My sister says California Baby is the way to go. Clean and Organic.. I have heard this about J+J for years now, and now that I am expecting my LO in November I do not know what to do.
What do you ladies use for you LO’s?
What good brands have you heard of?
Do you use J+J??

Yes I used J&J with my oldest, my stepchildren used it, and I am using it on my infant son. I think it is up to each parent what is best for their child. Just keep that in mind!
ETA: I will also (gasp) use store brand products as well.

I use J+J baby shampoo every day to take off my makeup. No tears 😉 My eyeballs aren’t poisioned lol

Well, my parents used J&J on both my sister and I and we managed to survive. I would love when people say stuff like this to cite real, credible scientific studies proving it. Fear mongering does no one any good.

@Kkaattii: I do this as well. I really hope it’s not poisonous, that would suck! I’d like to have eyes for my wedding…

Well I mean J&J did poison kids with Tylenol in the 80s
I think the shampoo contains known carcinogens (doesn’t everything these days?)

Your sister needs to take off her tin foil hat. As a company they have been around for like 150 years. That would mean millions of people who have used their products would be “poisoned” by now. What did people ever do before “organic”?

@eeniebeans: Obviously we all died becuase our parents didn’t feed us all natural, organic, locally grown food and bathe us in soap made from the tears of fairies. I am all for using real science to determin stuff that is better for us, otherwise lots more people would be dying from lead poisioning from the pipes and paint we didn’t know was making us crazy. But there is a line between “lets be safer” and “lets be so worried we live in a free range, organic bubble”

LGenz No, J&J did not poison people in the 80’s- some nutjob who tampered with the packaging and added cyanide poisoned the people. That’s like blaming American Airlines for what the terrorists did on 9/11.

OP, check out the environmental working group – they have good, scientific info on the chemicals in various products. Go here and click on “babies and moms”:

Solely the dose determines the poison… i.e. it all depends how you use it and how much. Presciptions save lives, until you take them the wrong way or too much.
This is a little alarmist. Trust me, J&J would not be on the market if it was known to be dangerous. And many, many things are accused of being carcinogens with little to no evidence.
Your post reminds me of this meme I saw the other day:
A Short History of Medicine
2000 B.C. -Here, eat this root.
1000 A.D. -That root is heathen. Here, say this prayer.
1850 A.D. -That prayer is superstition. Here, drink this potion.
1940 A.D. -That potion is snake oil. Here, swallow this pill.
1985 A.D. -That pill is ineffective. Here, take this antibiotic.
2000 A.D. -That antibiotic is artificial. Here, eat this root.
