Baby Powder?? Rss

Hi, I heard that using baby powder can cause cancer. What's the go should I use it or not??

Thanks

Hi Amy

Im not sure about cancer but it can be abig breeder of nacteria. It is not recomended that you use powder in moist areas-ie. the bottom or underarms as when it is moist it breeds bacteria which can cause not only nappy rash but infection. its fine for use on tummy and arms and legs but steer clear from using on babies bottoms!!

hope this helps a little!

No, I would not use talc-based powder, but there are talc-free powders and I use one by MADE OF. It is great and works just as well as the old stuff.
