  • I have heard this! I try to use natural products as bub has sensative skin


  • I had lots of these as presents when my kids were babies and used it a lot. If it was a health hazard , they would take it off the shelves , so it should be safe .


  • i actually asked my midwife, ‘what is the deal with baby powder as people have been saying online to avoid it”. she told me that it is because the powder is so fine that it goes into the air and the baby breathes it in, which isn’t a good thing. She said that if you have to use it, put a little onto your hand and smooth it on to minimise the dust but she said it was best to avoid it all together . So i went home and threw mine out and it was a big bottle.


  • Don’t know. I always chose products with as few chemicals as possible.


  • I haven’t heard this yet – sounds interesting


  • Do you have the link to the article? Would be interesting to read it.
