In brief: Gentle body wash

A gentle body wash and shampoo are all you need.
Avoid heavy perfumed soaps which could be drying to baby's skin. Light baby lotion is a great way to mosturize and give baby a nice relaxing massage.

In brief: Baby supplies

Look at the label.
Try to minimize exposure to anything with parabens and sodium lauryl sulfate or sls. Parabens are absorbed in the skin and can disrupt hormonal functions. Sls is harsh to the skin of a newborn. I recommend that you read dr. Mercola's website regarding this topic. His website is www.Mercola.Com.
