Babies are ultra-sensitive, and that’s why they are required to be handled with unadulterated love and care. Probably, that’s why every new mother thinks about opting for the best baby products for her little bundle of joy.
Be it the talcum powder, body lotion or diapers or even clothes, there is an endless number of options available in the market, promising themselves to be the safest of all.
But are these baby products really safe for your infant?
This concern has transformed into a major worry after witnessing the much-talked-about Johnson & Johnson baby talcum powder lawsuit.

Due to this, a lot of women have already lost their lives, whereas a high majority of women are still suffering from ovarian cancer.
