mommy talk my bulletin

Last week, I my baby Solana cried incessantly because of itchiness in her back. When I checked to see the cause, I was surprised to see her whole back with tons of red spots.

I was all of a sudden transported to my childhood and this came to mind- ‘bungang araw’. It was so automatic for me to try to find powder as what my mom and grandmother would immediately reach out for at the first sign of ‘bungang araw’ or prickly heat.

When I realized I didn’t have any in the house, I felt helpless. I didn’t know what to do. Since I knew that the cause of prickly heat is exposure to hot temperatures, I got an ice pack, which I used to cool Solana’s poor back. Thank God, she was relieved.

This got me thinking. I had gotten rid of powders for our children after reading all sorts of things about it and had mixed reactions towards powder. I didn’t bother to research more about it and just got rid of it so I won’t have to worry.

After this episode happened to Solana (mind you-this lasted a week), I now revisited this notion I have about powders.

The thought of powders brought back happy memories of my grandmother, ending my daily baths with it and then her assurance I smelled really good after she sniffed me. She would smile to herself as if to give her a pat in the back that she had bathed me well and half of her day’s work is almost done.

The picture of powder in my mind reminded of how it made me feel fresh all day long when it is hot and humid outside and a fresh pouring after playing in the streets re-energized me to keep playing until it was too dark to continue.

So what is all the fuss about powders? There’s a lot of concern about talc. Merriam-Webster describes talc as a very soft a very soft mineral that is a basic silicate of magnesium, has a soapy feel, and is used especially in making talcum powder.

According to the American Cancer Society, there are two kinds of talc, one that contains asbestos and the other that is used in modern consumer products, which is not necessarily carcinogenic, as it does not contain asbestos. To pacify the public about talc, here’s what the American Cancer Society has to say:

There is very little evidence at this time that any other forms of cancer are linked with consumer use of talcum powder.

Until more information is available, people concerned about using talcum powder may want to avoid or limit their use of consumer products that contain it.

With that being said, I am happy to find that there are natural talc-free alternatives that will allow me to have powder in our home.   It is such a delight to be introduced to Belo Baby Talc-free Powder. It smells really good and it comes with a guarantee! Belo Baby’s promise is that their products are crafted with care for the most delicate skin and for the most meticulous moms.

    Thank you for posting about this, Mommy Maricel. I’ve got no more babies in the house but I am sure that the Belo Baby Talc-Free Powder is also perfect for my kids who have sensitive skin, as they are the most active ones in the family.

    My son, who is currently living apart from me for college, frequently goes outdoors, and is constantly exposed to the extreme heat from our country — baby powders are always great for him to use as a quick relief from any rashes/skin infections that he has whenever I’m not around. My daughter, who is an all-around girly-girl, uses baby powder on her neck and arms all the time after she showers or washes up to make her skin smooth and soft. She loves the refreshing feeling that baby powders bring, and she likes the fragrances that come with baby powders.

    No doubt, my kids are heavy users of baby powder. However, ever since talk about baby powders with talc being cancerous started circulating, I’ve been worried about the welfare of my children. No mother would want her children to be in contact with harmful chemicals, and definitely, no mother would want her children to develop sickness, much more cancer.

    But I’m so glad that Belo has come up with another brilliant product: this all-natural and talc-free baby powder. It is greatly reassuring that this product has so many advantages. It’s such a relief that the product is talc-free; I’m free from worry from harmful chemicals and conditions that might result from them. I’m sure that this product will be regularly used and enjoyed by my kids and also by my husband and me.

    I always want my toddler to feel fresh all day by using a powder but im afraid she might have skin problems because of the harmful chemicals.

    But now that Belo baby has a “talc free” powder that is hypoallergenic and dermatologist tested I will definitely use it as our daily after bath routine to stay fresh all day!:)

    Good to know that Belo has come up with a powder that is safe for babies. I have a very active toddler and he recently suffered from a heat rash. I was hesitant to use the usual baby powder since asthma runs in the family. Do you know where can I buy them? I’ve looked for them in Mercury Drug, Landmark Dept Store and SM Dept Store but I am unable to get one.

    Hi I am first time mom.. being a mother is never ending duties, I always wanted to have my baby a fresh & rash free filling. I used Belo Baby “talc Free” powder everyday, when I go every time to groceries even dept store I buy 3 pcs because its difficult to find .
