Bathing baby - safe products

I would like to know what baby soap you recommend for washing a newborn baby. At my antenatal class, the midwife recommended only using water. A few of my friends recommend using acqueous cream. I would like to prevent my baby from having skin rashes and / or dry skin.

The recommendation these days is to avoid using any soaps for babies. Baby aqueous cream is a good idea to use after bathing him.Apply only a thin layer and rub in well.

Elizabeth Anne se Special baby Shampoo (for hair &  body - soap free). Jy kan hare &  lyfie met dit was, is ' n baie ' sagte produk'  of hulle lyfies. Jy kry ' n 500ml druk kannetjie in dit, werk beter as die houer met die doppie wat jy albei hande nodig het om dit te kan gebruik.
