  • They could be chapped, it could be eczema, hot, cold, or about a dozen other things.

  • My sons cheeks are red and chapped. It started when he started teething... I think they are some times called Teething Cheeks... so if it seems like it might be that, we have started using Nipple cream! It works great and is safe to use on baby

  • If the only thing you're noticing is the red cheeks, it's normal. Sometimes their skin gets flushed because they are tired, or because it's cold.

    If you notice other symptoms like a rash, irritability, lethargy, or other behavior changes - you can always google those symptom groups. There are so many different things that "could" be wrong, even if it's nothing at all, that I always try to find info online before talking to my doctor. :)
