Hello Mommies! For tonight's #TanongNiMommy, we'd like to know your thoughts on using powder on your babies.

There are some who say that using powder may cause asthma, lung problems etc. Are you pro or anti powder? Have you consulted your pedia about the use of powder before actually using it on your baby?

Share your thoughts, reactions, or concerns! We'd love to hear your inputs (or maybe some research you have found online?)

takot ako gumamit ng powder sa baby ko nung maliliit pa sila, kasi sabi nga nila, baka magka asthma. na baka pumasok sa lungs yung mga particles ng powder pag na inhale.

pero nakakaawa naman makita na pawis saka di comfortable lalo na pag mainit ang panahon. :(

so, nag ask ako sa pedia ko about using powder, di naman daw nagkakacause ng asthma, basta, tama yung pag lagay kay baby.

sabi niya  sa akin, lagay muna sa hands, i spread ng onti (basta pag gagawin ito wag sa harap ni baby) tapos saka mo siya lagyan ng powder.

Hello,

I tried before on my 1st born, and yes I am afraid too na baka mag-cause ng asthma or ma-triger asthma ng baby ko but I would agree on how you properly use the powder and ways how you will apply or put it on your baby's body. This time, ang ginagamit ko is baby wipes na merun powder scent although I think putting a powder on baby's skin is soothing. I might try again :-) since I have a 24 day old baby. <3 <3 <3

i don't think powder causes asthma but it does trigger asthma sa mga baby na may asthma na. when my kids were younger since may asthma sila bawal talaga powder so i used yung baby spa liquid powder. liquid upon application pero dries up like a powder super bango pa medyo pricey nga lang saka mahirap mahanap. pero now my kids are bigger kahit naglalaro pa sila ng powder di naman na sila hinihika.

Great inputs mommies @julietgeslani @annamariemomof3 @MommyAnne!

Applying Powder on babies should be made with caution. :)

Are there other myths out there about using baby powder aside from it causing asthma? Feel free to share it with us!

Hello Mommies, I'm a newbie here. Here's my input about baby powder. Eversince kasi hindi ako gumagamit nun, advice ng pedia ng cousin ko hindi daw maganda un sa balat ng baby. Mas nagiging makinis daw ang balat ng  baby pag hindi sanay sa baby powder. Pansin ko din kasi sa mga babies niya ang gaganda ng kutis kasi never din sya gumamit ng baby powder sa mga bata. Totoo kaya un?

First thing na hndi pwedeng mawala samen ang baby powder.. i remebered when my 6 yo daughter played b.powder, 2 yo lang siya noon. nalimutan ko itaas, nagkalat talaga sa room as in' tapos yung mukha niya ang dami. sobrang kinabahan ako dahil sabi nga nila nakaka asthma..happily wala naman nangyare... na ubos lang ang powder  :-[ after taking bath i put some b.powder na. maybe 4 times a day then pag naka tulog na sila nilalagyan ko sila ulit  :)

Baby ko may skin asthma so doble takot kong lagyan siya ng powder since sensitive na talaga balat niya. At ayaw din ng mama ko na lagyan ng powder si baby dahil nga daw magkaka-lung asthma pag nasinghot.

Wag daw sabi ng pedia namin kasi daw baka mapunta sa lungs ng baby yung powder. Hindi naman niya sinabi na nakaka asma. Hindi ko na din tinanong kasi alam ko naman na namamana ang asma o kaya sa exposure sa pollution, hindi sa baby powder. Ginagamitan ko pa rin ng powder pag lampin ang gamit ko. Mas presko ang pakiramdan ni baby, ingat lang ako na hindi niya mahinga. Pero hanggang ngayon wala naman akong nababalitaang kaso na nakasama nga sa lungs ng baby ang pulbos.
