  • Yes, I do, especially in her folds, but I always dry well first after her bath to prevent caking and redness. It seems to help keep her a little drier on hotter days, and she has some folds...

  • Nope. I use corn starch! Its cheaper and it works just as well. My kids have never had a diaper rash either

  • I use a bit on his butt, especially at night when he gets hot, or if we're going in the car. I use Johnson's Cucumber Melon, or any other Johnson kind. Just got the cucumber for a gift and we love it.

  • No, because it's dangerous if they inhale it.

  • " No, because it's dangerous if they inhale it. "
    That's why you put a little on your hand and pat it on, then there is none in the air :)

    I use it sometimes after baths, or if she had a big poop and I had to use alot of wipes
