  • All babies get it. It's fine. Make sure it isn't too hot, and as long as your baby gets bathed, you'll be fine. This is just left over hormones from you. Hope it helps!

  • They always told me to leave it alone because in time it will heal itself just make sure your baby gets bathedd at the right times.

  • Yep, just let it run its course. Go easy on the lotion or find a baby-safe oil free lotion for the affected areas

  • The best thing for baby acne is time. As time goes by itll go away on its own. Its annoying while its here, but it will most definatley go away. ~Kristin~

  • Just keep the area clean and dry and it'll run its course. They say it's actually mommies hormones that are still in the baby's system and that's the bodies way of working them out. If it looks red and irritated though my dr. suggested putting a little 1% Hydrocortisone cream on the area. I used it on my daughter and it helped when it was really flared up.
