  • Me, but just on myself in hot weather. It's not good for babies; they breathe it in.

  • Same as SWasson - I use it on myself. Have never used it on my son. Diaper rash cream is all he needs and perhaps I need to start using that too, now that I think about it, lol.

  • I use it for my son in every diaper or he will get such a bad rash that he will start bleeding.

  • i use baby powder only because i dont wash my hair everyday( stripes it of the healthy minerals) so on the secon day of not washing my hair sometimes it can get a little oily so i toss some baby powder in my hair not only does it look like u just washed your hair it smells good too, but be worned u have to rub it in or u will have white hair! lol

  • Haven't used it on myself in years, LOL. And I've never used it on my son. I was told by the nurse after having him that baby powder is bad for them because they can inhale it (which makes sense), so I chose not to use it. However, there is liquid baby powder by Huggies and I'd gotten that as a shower gift, so I did use that on occasion. My son has never really suffered from diaper rash fortunately so I haven't had to use it much.

  • Same here Jaydn. I do live in a hot climate, and I have big boobs. But I am not a sweaty person otherwise, and the underboob dampness really does get old. It ruins bras too. Someone needs to invent a solution for this problem, lol.
