If baby has a rash use a diaper cream or other remedy (like just giving their little bum some fresh air). If there is no rash then you (or baby, rather) is good to go - no extras needed.
I was going to say same thing. Baby powered is not safe to breathe in. I never put cream unless there is a rash. If there is then I used triple paste or A&D for overnight and during the day. Also airing out is great too. I know some mommies who have used breast milk on a rash and they swear by it. So that is also a thing to use if there is a rash.
