Check Ingredients: Read the ingredient list carefully, avoiding powders containing fragrances, dyes, or other potentially irritating or harmful additives.

Apply Sparingly: Use baby powder sparingly to avoid inhalation or skin irritation. Apply a small amount to your hands first, then gently pat onto the baby’s skin.

Keep Out of Reach: Store baby powder out of reach of children to prevent accidental ingestion or inhalation.
