I'd love to use it again, I love the smell of it.
No, it shouldn't affect them like non-dipe safe creams and ointments. I use a homemade medicated (herbal) one for ds to help keep his heiny as dry as possible and heal from his rashes that he is uber prone to.

I used J&J cornstarch powder all the time when we had my little one in sposies because she constantly had diaper rash. Once we switched to cloth, we didn't have diaper rash anymore, so we didn't need the powder.

I believe the cornstarch is safer for babies because they can inhale just regular talc powder.

We use corn starch by California Baby. Love it! Only at nights to keep him dry.

huh, I've never noticed pee smell while my dd's wearing her dipes (only when they're sitting in the pail & I need to do laundry!)
