When my little girl was a newborn, I would catch people smelling her head. Weird, yes, but I knew exactly what smell they were looking for. That new baby smell – sweet, powdery, and soft. Baby Magic has been successful at bottling that “new baby scent” and they have been around since 1951! Their products are gentle for baby’s delicate skin – even the nursery where I delivered her used it to give babies their first bath!
I already knew that using powder was a no-no when it came to babies. This “trusted” formula that my own mother used on all her kids was no longer regarded as a safe solution to keeping baby’s diaper area dry. I was a little surprised when my daughter’s pediatrician recommended corn starch to heal a horrible diaper rash, and since he recommended it for occasional use, I use it every time she has a bad rash and it clears up within a day!
So, if he recommended it why is it so bad? Well, studies claim that loose powder can be hazardous when inhaled. We all know how messy powder is and breathing it in is very likely. Baby Magic came out with PattyCake. I like to call Patty Cake the “clean powder.” It is mess free and small enough to throw in the diaper bag! Here are some more features of Patty Cake:
