I use this for me. Good price point compared to other non-talc powders and will last a long time. I mainly use a little underneath "the girls" (women will understand that). My Dr. told me, after I brought it up to him, that I tend toward a type of 'yeast' issue there causing itching. Yes, it's possible! This powder is perfect to help that situation; every day and especially hot weather. (fyi-Dr. also suggested using a plain bar of soap-Dial for that particular area) My skin is very sensitive and this powder does not give me any problems. I would think this would be great for a baby's bum.

I once calculated how much I'd spent in diapers between my children. The price was staggering. In the beginning, I bought the crunchiest disposable diapers available. After that messy lesson, I switched to a popular brand that cost nearly as much. I never really thought about what I would do if I couldn't pay for them, but where can you get free diapers for your baby? It makes sense to wonder — it cost me thousands of dollars to hold my baby's crap.
