My newborns vagina has a white odorless stuff that looks like a dried powder . What is that? Is it safe?

In brief: Don't worry

Newborn girls can get a sticky, white powder like debris that is dead skin cells that collects in the folds.
They also can get a sticky whitish secretion from their vaginas, but that is not powder like. Both are normal and go away without doing anythin.
