Hi, There is something that is worrying me. I wanted to know what you all use for your babies after giving them a good bath, or after changing the diapers. Well, I use powders. But, I recently came across this article, . thelawfirm.com/talcum-powder-lawsuit/baby-powder-risks-for-babies.html. It is said that the use of talcum powder can cause ovarian cancer among women. And small amounts of talcum powder can be harmful for the baby’s tiny lungs. Now, could this be true? What do you all think about this? If not powder, then what else can we use for the babies, any other alternatives?
I thought this was common knowledge, about powders being harmful, it says on the tub about not breathing in and the cancer scare has been in the news for years now! I only use talc on holiday in hot countries after a shower or on the beach. I also don't see the need for it in babies.
