Hi all

Do you use talc?

After my baby has had a bath I always use talcum powder on him and quite a generous amount.

Now I'm worried after reading all the stories on the internet recently.

Do you use talcum powder?

Your son is hardly at risk of getting ovarian cancer.

The link between talc and cancer is not proven anyway.

No. Never used it for babies. I understand the powder isn't good for babies lungs.

I know my son is not at risk for ovarian cancer so no need for sarcasm just wanted to know people's thoughts generally.

No I never use it, TBH I don't see the need, a good rub down with a towel works fine

Never used the stuff. What is it for? Serious question.
