Baby powder is no longer recommended. When applying baby powder it becomes airborne and can be inhaled into the baby's lungs. It can cause health problems in the baby if inhaled. Corn starch baby powder will make a diaper rash caused by a yeast infection worse because the corn starch will feed the yeast infection. Due to the risks associated with baby powder it is no longer recommended.
