  • I think both of my girls' bad cases of it cleared up on their own by around 8 weeks.

  • Just make sure you wipe the face with a disposable damp cloth rather than the same spit-uppy burp cloth all day long... beyond that, nothing you can do, the rest is hormonal.

  • At first we thought our son had baby acne or even heat rash, it ended up being eczema. Watch out for dry patches!
