I want to try this new baby powder! However, I am a little concerned about reusing the same sponge each time. This baby powder has been compared to a woman's compact. What are your thoughts?
FROM NBC: A new alternative to baby powder has hit the market, and the company that makes it says it's safer for babies and moms. Your baby is whining and needs his diaper changed.
"Here, let's clean you out because you're kind of smelly." Like many other moms, Jennifer Saenz does not use talcum baby powder. Jennifer Saenz, mother: "Certainly, as a mom, you want to avoid anything that's going to have a negative effect on your child." Doctors say the fine particles can get into a baby's lungs and cause asthma or pneumonia.
So moms like Jennifer have been using lotions instead, but complaining that lotions don't keep their baby dry. Peter Song, Naterra Executive V.P. "We're still a small company so we can listen to what moms are saying." So Dallas-based Naterra has created the first patented, dustless baby powder. The talc-free pressed powder is called "Baby Magic Patty Cake." Peter Song, Naterra Executive V.P. "They can just throw it in the diaper bag, don't have to worry about spilling anything."
The texture and the way you apply it is similar to makeup powder. Peter Song, Naterra Executive V.P. "You apply the powder very much like you would makeup on your face. all our products are made right here in the USA at our plant in Dallas, Texas." At a family-owned business, where other baby magic products are made. Doctors are starting to recommend Patty Cake, and so are moms.
Jennifer Saenz, mother: "It's very easy and clean on the go." Patty Cake is sold on Amazon.com and drugstore.com for about 8 dollars. It will be available in Walgreens and Babies-R-Us stores nationwide in late January.
