What is the best laundry detergent for a newborn? I went to buy Dreft, but didn't know it was so expensive. Any suggestions?

I'd use the ones that have no color or scent added. Costco or Sam's have their own brand in large jugs. All makes a variety of this called "free & clear".

Any dye and perfume free detergent is safe for baby clothes. I make my own detergent now, and it works well. I don't have a baby so I don't know how well it would work for you. My yongest is 2. 10 cups washing soda, 8 bars Zote soap, 10 cups borax. Grate the soap bars up and mix with the other two ingredients. Can be processed in food processor to make a fine powder. I don't have one so I put a cup or two at a time in my blender and blend unil smooth. Takes a little effort, but makes a huge batch, and very easy to store. Put in a bucket, canister, or tin. Or even measure out 1/4 cup into individual sandwich bags and add one to washer before clothes. It is supposed to be good for sensitive skin, and people with eczema or psoriasis. I'd give it a try. If you send me a message with your address I could send you a couple uses worth that I have made up already. It's about $15 to make a very large batch. I do at least ten loads of laundry a week, and if I use 1/4 cup every load it would last at least two months.

Years ago I used Dreft which was super gentle for baby clothes. Not sure if it's even for sale now, but you could Google choices for baby detergent now.
