I only use cornstarch powders, and I use them once every few months for bedtime when he has got bad nappy rash.
Talc powder has been linked to cancer. When looking at malignant ovarian tumors, doctors have found traces of talc powder in the tumours.

Why are you guys getting catty over powder? Ahhh I've missed bub hub.
On second thoughts... There was a reason for cattiness.. I take that back.

The it time I used it was when ds had dribble rash under his neck when he was a few months old. Never felt the need to use it when changing his nappy.

No I did not use it on mine when they were little. I was also told about the link with talc and cancer. My mother is a avid talc user down below and she has had cancer of the uterus. Is it what caused it, I have no idea, but to here that a link had been found and knowing what my mother does was enough for me.
I was told to use one that said pure cornstarch or not at all. I used sudocream or something or other (a while ago now).

Contrary to do many others, I stayed away from creams entirely and didn't think cream on bub was necessary at all. Only used very mild soap and mainly just water to bathe him too.
But always fluffed on a bit of baby powder and still do. Just to make sure his bottom was completely dry before dressing him and a fluff over his body for that lovely baby smell. Still do it! Not so much as a skin irritation or any redness since he was born

I know it's also bad for babies lungs if they inhale it..
Would it be bad for baby boys though?
