    I was about to post this too.

    There are however several other natural powders without talc on the market now which are safe. I was recommended to put the powder in my hand then wipe on baby, rather than shaking it in the air.

    Don't beat yourself up hon, it's fair to say that it's not really common knowledge, so it's great that we can have threads like this to enlighten people of the *possible* risks or ramnifications.

    Agreed Uniquey. Plus it's such a huge part of our culture and it's very rare we're warned of the dangers but we're taught that it's such a great, necessary product.

    They still sell cigarettes. Kind of different, but some people would still use it even it it was potentially carcinogenic.

    Yep. I have a book, The Chemical Maze, that is an easy to read guide. It really is a maze and it's very tricky to navigate. I don't blame any parent for buying baby products from the baby aisle of the supermarket. We don't know that what's on the shelf can be potentially harmful.

    natural foods can be harmful as well, so I figure we just do the best with the knowledge we have. When we know better we do better…so as we learn we can cut out things that we find out are harmful. This forum is certainly good for that.

    Only thing that worked at the time, I'm not worried. They're in undies now so don't use it anymore.
