  • Talcum powder is not to be used on babies or anyone, it clogs up your lungs!!!! get to the pediatrician or ER

  • Check the ingredients. The chances are that it isn't talc, it's cornstarch. If it is then there's no problem.

  • Watch your kid better.. and don't let your 16 month old type out your questions for you.

  • *sigh* These questions always make me wonder what I ever did when my kids were babies. I mean, I never had the internet to ask, so what did I do? Oh, that's right... I used common sense and called the doc or poison control.

    And I thought talcum powder was a big no no for babies. At least it was when mine were little, and that was over a decade ago.
