  • It will go away on its own, just be patient and don't pick at it! :)

  • it will go away on its own. baby skin has to get used to our environment, my daughter had a few bumps, but not many. and it went away and never came back.

  • Don't use any soap on her face. Are you breastfeeding? The doctor told me it happens, because of all of your hormones and the babies hormones are all wild. Dd got acne right around 1 month and it was gone by 2 months. I know it sucks to see these little blemishes all over your baby's beautiful face, but they will be gone soon enough, mama!
