So, I know the topic of flying in diapers comes up periodically. I've done it a number of times now, and never had any problems. However, I noticed something interesting flying this past weekend.
Although diapers had never attracted any attention (neither on me nor in my bag), security seemed oddly interested in my baby powder. Normally I don't take much powder with me, but I'd just bought a fresh bottle and decided to stash it in my bag for the trip. Both ways, the bag that had the powder in it was flagged for check, and both times they pulled out the powder for a closer look. They ran it past some other machines and dusted it and put it in yet some others.
In the end, they just handed it back to me and I moved along. Now, I was traveling alone, so I didn't much care. However, I thought this might be an interesting tidbit for anyone planning on flying with diapers in a group, especially if the others don't know about said diapers.
I'm not sure if the attraction was to the shape/density, or the fact it was powdery, etc. This particular batch is cornstarch based. Anyone else run into this?
