In brief: Definitely

Pretty much any oil based lubricant can lead to problems with condom. So use water based lubricants such as k-y or liquid silk.

In brief: Not break, slip off

Best to use water soluble lubricant or spermicidal jelly.
Baby oil could get inside the condom and cause it slip or slide off.
