do you use baby powder in your CD's?

i use it to cover up the smell of urine if we are out and about but i was wondering what mama's do? i havnt heard that its bad for the diapers ( i know how people "say" its bad for baby but that isnt what im asking about) and they seem to have NO effect on them. i just wanted to know if other mama's use baby powder???

talc free
not talc free
cornstarch
or whatever (let us know) brand

I have never tried it but I might now that you have mentioned it! My husband was using A&D on DD's bottom, which I did not know he was doing until I started smelling this gosh awful smell in her diapers! Then I realized it was made with COD OIl!

There's a difference between baby powder and baby cornstarch powder. The cornstarch is not harmful.

Re: do you use baby powder in your CD's?

I never used powder with my DS. I think the main reason is my MIL drowns my nephew in powder after every change and I hated it so it made me not want to use any. Also, my MIL watched my DS and I was able to say nicely not to use powder by telling her, "Oh, you can't use any creams or powder with the cloth diapers." My little white lie to stop the powder cloud.

Re: do you use baby powder in your CD's?

I should add that I did not powder my daughter. I was too worried about it getting caked in the "bits n' pieces" and causing an infection or something. I used/use it on my boys though.

I really like it with cd's in the summer when he doesn't get a lot of time to air out. It smells sweet too.
