Better not to use powder

Thanks for writing to us.
It is better to avoid any powder for the baby.
Lotion - Always go for trusted ones , i usllaly recommend for my patients lotions like XXXXXXX or dermadew baby lotion.
I usually advice to use lotion sparingly .
Lotion can be used once daily after bath.
Powder makes skin more dry by absorbing moisture .
