I use it on my 3.5 month old last night and about 5 mins after putting it on and getting her pj's on, she just started to scream like she was hurting soooooo bad, i mean real tears and all. My Mom was here and step dad and they were asking me if I did anything different and I mentioned the lotion and my step dad said, just give her another bath and wash it off. Sure enough she was fine a little after she settled down and got it all off of her. I threw that bottle away faster then I put it in my shopping cart. Is there something in there that would make her skin feel weird, maybe feel like ben gay or something?

I have never heard of this happening and I've never used that lotion myself, but I do use the Johnston's bath time drops (lavender for calming effects). IMO a lotion designed for babies should be hypo-allergenic. Does it say that on the bottle? Also, I only started using fragrance lotions and such when was ds was 4 months. He had sensitive skin and would break out on a rash. Obviously that lotion doesn't agree with your lo so I would stop using it and try another lotion. Or, in case it might have been a coincidence you could try using it again in a few days and see how she reacts.

Thats soo odd, I use this same lotion on my Lo he almost 5 mnts and I have been using it for about a month. I have never had any problems with it, It is a hypoallergenic lotion. Im soo sorry that you baby had to feel that. GL

I have been using just the plan old JJ baby lotion and that's just fine. Maybe I got a defective bottle, I have no idea. i just felt so awful and like the worst mother in the world.

I use the J&J bedtime lotion on my 4 month old and that has never happened to us. That must have been awful having your LO in such pain.

Dear Mrs Ireland, all babies are different. My dd reacted badly to all JJ products with red rashes under a minute. I immediately stopped them all and turned to huggies extra sensitive and gerber products, which she tolerated, so dont feel bad, just keep trying other brands until u find what she likes...
