Is it safe to use baby powder on babies?

Contrary to the label, pediatricians recommend parents not to use the baby powder whether it was made with talc or not, for children and babies.

It can cause pneumoconiosis, a lung disease caused by inhalation of dust that may occur if the container accidentally spilled baby powder.

If the baby powder is used for preventing diaper rash, then, pediatricians recommend using as far as possible from the baby.

“Use as little as possible, maybe put it in your hands and then put it to the diaper area or gently sprinkle into the diaper area," says a pediatrician.
