  • My granddaughter's armpits and feet stink! After I bathe her I put some Johnson's cornstarch powder on those areas and keep them clean and airy (exposed to air). You can lightly brush a small amount of cornstarch powder onto your son's head to absorb sweat and odors. I recommend that you first wash his head/hair with baby shampoo, allow do dry, brush in a little cornstarch powder, clean your son's head throughout the day with a wet washcloth and reapply the cornstarch powder once completely dry. Hopefully our babies won't grow up with these overactive sweat glands that smell so funky. :)

  • Yes she does! Lol. She sweats and also had acid reflux so she is always spitting up. I usually rub some baby powder on her and it helps tons. I also put some on a brush and run it through her hair. Your baby may not have enough hair to do that...but it wouldn't hurt to maybe rub some in. :D
