    Yes I use baby powder, not all the time though and not a heap of it

    The IARC classifies carcinogens as 1) carcinogenic
    2a) Probably carcinogenic
    2b) Possibly carcinogenic
    3) not classifiable
    4) not carcinogenic

    Talc based powders are in the 2b category. There were some links found between talc based powders and ovarian cancer but the links were found in women who used the product prior to its regulation in the 70s. http://www.cancerwa.asn.au/resources...m-powder-myth/

    Incidentally the 2b category also contains coffee, mobile phones and dry cleaning! http://monographs.iarc.fr/ENG/Classi...AlphaOrder.pdf

    OP, I think that as long as the powders ate not talc based they will be fine. But maybe wait till bubs' skin is not dry before using. I used an oatmeal cream on my DD when she had dry skin.

    Nope never used it! My dd gets a thrush nappy rash sometimes and I use dektozin for it. If she appears a bit chafed or pinkish in her nappy area I use paw paw cream. For dry skin I use olive oil in the bath water. I never use anything else.

    Nope, I threw them on the bin. Knowing what I know about it I couldn't even bring myself to give it away!

    I thought that stuff was extinct these days lol
