Baby powder makes me wheeze. My pedi also said not to use it. No powder in our house.

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

I have used it with 3 kids. Eddie has gotten powder at every change since his pee-pee healed after birth, and he has not had a rash yet. I swear by it. We usually use J&J or Burts Bee's but have been know to use staight corn starch from the kitchen too. lol

Note: when DS #1 and DD would get rashes my mom would tell me to put straight corn starch in the frig, get it nice and cold and then use it. She swore it was very soothing when cool on their rashed bums. Also my sister gave me a great recipe for that burned antibiotic poopy bum rash. Mix cornstarch and mylanta until it forms a paste and it works like magic!

Now you tell me that I can use it. LOL! My DS needs it, cuz he gets way too much wetness down there which causes rashes and etc. I will start using my J&J cornstarch baby powder again though. Thanks for the info!!!

Me too, plain ol' cornstarch to keep dd dry, but the idea to use it after putting on ointment is a good one, I gotta try that!

talc free
not talc free
cornstarch
or whatever (let us know) brand
I never have smelled urine on dd while out, usually it's only the first morning change after she wakes up do I ever smell anything strong...Yes, talc is bad. I don't use it.

Do they even make talc powder anymore. I thought they figured out it was bad and stopped. I've been wanting to try Burt's Bees but it's been sold out at my local store for ages now. I guess I could go to a different store. LOL

I love using powder on my little one. I use cornstarch from the baking section, not "baby powder". I don't see any problems with it.

I just use plain old cornstarch from Sam's Club. You can buy a 3# tub for like 2 bucks in the spices department.

It has no effects on the dipes...unless you count that poo does not stick to the dipes as much so there is less staining.
