Re: baby powder?

  • From what I've read, baby powder shouldn't be used at all, regardless of if you're using cloth or sposies. AAP's stance is to avoid it.

  • Yes you can use it. I don't use it but my parents LOVE to cake it on my kids. My son loves it on his feet after a bath. But yes. You can use it with cloth.

  • I think baby powder is usually cautioned against due to the risk of inhaling the talc, especially when shaken directly on LO. I use a talc-free version on DD with no negative effect on the CD's. There are natural versions you can buy or make yourself.

  • Hmm. I might have to look into those natural or homemade versions.

    Basically I was using it to try to keep the California Baby butt cream on longer. Like making a sort of barrier so it didnt just wipe right off as soon as I put the diaper one.  I love CA baby butt cream, but its not very "sticky" .  Shes had a rash the past few days and the pedi was recommeding the 40% Desitin. And I have no liners either.  sooooo, yeah. thats that.

  • It's not hard to find baby powder without talc. I've also heard you can use straight corn starch. Unfortunately, it will feed yeast infections, so I would be careful.

  • Yeah I'm definitely avoiding cornstarch because we have recurrent yeast (maybe).

     

    She seems to have cleared up pretty nicely though over the past two days. I'm hoping straight up cream w/out the powder will do ok for keeping it at bay.
