Baby BO?

My best friend has adopted a baby and we've noticed this summer that she get horrible BO! She is 10 months old now, but was 3 months premature. My friend has tried everything, baths her at least once a day, she's tried baby powder and constant wiping with baby wipes. Has anyone else experience this? Isn't it odd for her sweat to smell so bad before she's hit puberty?

  • Check with the Dr. Some diseases can make BO worse or it could be symptom of something.

  • that's so strange! is she a breastfed baby? maybe it's something the mother eats if so. If not, maybe it's the formula. I don't know, this is weird. It has to be some kind of imbalance.

  • My son had it his first summer too....nothing to worry about...this summer he is not a stinky baby. There is not much you can do for it other than what you are already doing! Write it down one day you will laugh about it!
