Talc-free powders are made with products such as corn or tapioca starch, arrowroot or rice powder, baking soda, and kaolin or bentonite clay. These all have bigger particles than talcum powder, meaning that they are less likely to be inhaled or absorbed into the body. In addition, these products are all non-carcinogenic and are unlikely to cause any kind of allergic response.
We know from our own experience that checking out baby magazines is a highly effective way to find free offers. Many baby product companies are eager to get new customers by letting them try the products before they buy, and a baby magazine is the best place to find their target audience. So even if you don’t subscribe, pick up a few baby magazines at the checkout counter and see what you can find!
@ccoon17 Just to add on to the Amazon welcome box - I *think* you have to be a prime member (I remember another post where someone said that; I'm prime so I can't confirm that) and $10 minimum needs to be purchased from your registry - you can buy it yourself lol there is something I'm sure you'll need that's cheap. Can also set the registry to private if you'd like. My welcome box came with a TON of stuff - diaper, huge pack of wipes, pacifiers, muslin swaddle, tub of lysol wipes, a onesie, coupons, lil travel sized soaps and washes, body suit and a bottle. Totally worth it. Reply

**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.
Dried Herbs – Dried herbs are also a fabulous addition, and may be a better option for very young babies. They can be ground into a powder in a coffee/spice grinder, and can be used in lieu of, or in addition to, essential oils. Some herbs are great for deodorizing, while others are nice for their skin-soothing benefits. Note: Be sure to thoroughly sift your dried herbs after grinding to catch any pieces that were not finely ground into a powder or it could be rough and irritating to baby’s skin.
