  • More than likely he has a milk rash. Wipe his face after each feeding with a damp cloth. It will annoy him but a clean face is a happy face.
    I am assuming he has no fever or eating problems since you did not mention it.
    It never hurts to put a quick call in to your doctor and ask. If he has an appointment soon, ask then.
