Available in many states and most of Canada, a goody box of coupons and samples is available for those that attend a free baby class that covers pregnancy, baby care and health and safety issues. Taking this class could be in addition to or in place of hospital maternity classes (which also hand out a bag of goodies once you complete it). But even just signing up puts you on a list for promotions.
So! Awareness is key (no thanks to Johnson & Johnson, which according to prosecutors, has known of the potential risks of talc since the ’80s yet failed to share the facts with consumers), and the moral of the story is that you should probably ditch any and all talc-based beauty products posthaste, especially if you’re putting them close to your vagina. Opt for one of these eight talc-free body powders instead—with prices ranging from less than $5 to $27, there’s something for everyone. Some of them were probably actually made for balls, but hey, it’s all the same.
Medical institutions such as the doctor’s offices and hospitals frequently get free samples of diapers from manufacturers to distribute to patients. Since those samples are usually samples of new products, there is no guarantee of what types or sizes are available, but if you call local doctors and hospitals in your area, you can find out what’s currently available.
Erica, I was very happy to see that you noted that the science on a talc/ ovarian cancer risk is inconclusive at best. It might be nice to move it closer to the start of this article. It’s important, because “evidence based science” is increasingly getting kicked to the curb and that’s a bad thing (don’t vaccinate your kids because one disproved study said they were linked and now people have died from measles). That said, J &J started making cornstarch baby powder years ago, it’s what we use.
Believe Organics Talc Free Powder freshens, deodorizes, and absorbs moisture safely. This talc free loose powder handmade in small batches with organic rosemary & lavender essential oils. The ingredients including, certified organic cornstarch, certified organic arrowroot, certified organic tapioca, sweet rice, kaolin clay, saleratus, certified organic lavender, certified organic rosemary, and other certified organic essential oils. I love using this powder to keep drying during heavy workouts or during the summer to ward off chafing. When you sweat, light lavender and rosemary scents cover up body odor.
Sometimes a parent will buy a brand of diapers that gives their child a rash, leaving them stuck with dozens, maybe even hundreds, of diapers that they cannot use for fear of massive diaper rash. These people then take to online groups like Craiglist, FreeCycle, or local Facebook yard sale or freebie groups. Even if they aren’t giving the diapers away, many of them drastically slice the cost of the diapers.
We plan on using our Farmstead Milk Soap when bathing our babe after lots of great feedback from happy parent customers (apparently it also removes poop and puke stains from fabric - good to know!), but hadn't thought much about other baby care products until recently. After some research, I decided to add baby powder and a diaper cream to my project list.
What exactly are you looking for? I received the baby safety items in the mail for free right away and they are fantastic. I also just posted about free Gerber formula. I’ve received many free samples of diapers and wipes in the mail from Costco and Huggies. I also received free formula and nice coupons from Enfamil Family Beginnings. I am about to get a free baby book in the mail too. If you follow along, you will get some great freebies.

It is not clear if consumer products containing talcum powder increase cancer risk. Studies of personal use of talcum powder have had mixed results, although there is some suggestion of a possible increase in ovarian cancer risk. There is very little evidence at this time that any other forms of cancer are linked with consumer use of talcum powder.

**Please note: Some people are opposed to using essential oils when caring for children and babies. I've found that most popular natural baby skincare lines use them safely and successfully for their healing and sensory qualities and have chosen to do so as well. This is something for you to research yourself and decide what is best for you and your baby.
