Default Bath time

Hello! I've noticed a lot of suggestions for Aveeno body wash but I was wondering if I could use this instead since I already have it for my daughter. Comparing the two ingredient lists, mine has a lot less items but I don't know if they are all hedgie safe.

Comforts for baby: Baby wash
Ingredients: Water, peg-80 sorbitan laurate, cocamidopropyl betaine, sodium laureth sulfate, peg-150 distearate, tetrasodium EDTA, sodium chloride, polyquaternium-10, fragrance, peg-175 diisostearate, phenoxyethanol, caprylyl glycol, sodium hydroxide.

Also after each bath I typically put oil from her previous owner on her. I'm not sure what brand as its unmarked. Would this be okay to switch to?

Comforts for baby: Baby oil
Other Ingredients: Mineral oil, aloe barbadensis leaf extract, fragrance, tocopherol (vitamin E).

One of the reasons Aveeno baby wash is recommended is because it has oat in it and is fragrance free. Personally I avoid anything with fragrance in it because they are so sensitive to smells.

As for the oil, mineral oil isn't actually very good for skin. Vitamin E oil or flaxseed oil is better.
