baby powder Lock Rss

HI,
Should i be using baby powder on my 7 week old baby i've heard it may cause bacterial infections and even cancer.

Is this true? Should i use it or not??

Hi,
Thank you for your enquiry. Midwives don’t recommend the use of powders on baby’s bottoms. I don’t think that it causes what you state but it does tend to irritate the skin.
Best wishes,
Alex.
