A 46-year-old member asked:
Will baby powder cause any problem with my new nipple piercings?

No but not advised: New nipple piercings should be kept moist with antibiotic ointment or petroleum jelly for the first 6 weeks for the best healing. Although baby powder will not cause any problems, it is not recommended.
