Quoting Rumpelstiltskin:" I used it on Novali's neck, underarms and diaper area when it was hot out. I never heard of it being ... [snip!] ... didn't know! I never just shook it down on her, though, I'd always put it on my hands and rub it on her. Is that safer?? "
That's what I always did.
I'm sure anybody inhaling any kind of powder is bad. I used cornstarch baby powder though. Never had any issues :)
Quoting Rumpelstiltskin:" I do the same thing!! It feels good under my arms too when it's super hot too! "
And under your b**bs so our bra doesn't rub :)

It's a little safer. But there are cornstarch based baby powders (ie not talc/talcum based) that would be totally safe when rubbed on.

Never heard of it. I cloth, so we didn't have rashes, really
i use it after baths and occasionally before putting on a new diaper. I put on my hands and rub it together on my hands then rub it on DS.
i use it on my daughter during diaper change and on my fat thighs sometimes.
I never used it on DD but i've been using it on DS. He had a little but rash and cream didnt really help it. Ive never heard if baby power being harmful til now :oops: I only use a little and gentle shake it out so it doesnt float everywhere and i only used it on his bottom. The bottle says Johnson's baby power, soothing aloe & vitamin e, pure cornstarch. Is that kind is ok or should i just buy real cornstarch?
Yes it can be a hazard, my pedi said it was totally okay to use as long as I didn't puff it all over the place, just put a little on my hands and keep away from the babies face. It's all about how you use the product.
Quoting P Pickle Pants:" It's a breathing hazard for little ones and is not recommended. You can use corn starch though. Works just as well with no harmful particles in the air and fewer chemicals."
Never knew it was hazardous. I'll have to go buy the cornstarch. DD doesn't get rashes but her rolls get red so I use it on them and her neck get really moist and gets occasional rashes. Thanks for all the responses!!
I use the talc free one, but only on her bottom, I don't want her to breathe it in!
with my first daughter i used it all the time didn't think there was anything wrong then with my second child which is 6 years younger they told me its not good because babies could inhaul it so then i started to put it on the diaper away from her before putting the diaper on that way she didn't suck it in have no problems with it
