  • I don't think it is acne, it is usually caused by their sensitive skin being rubbed on fabrics that have been washed in a detergent with irritant elements, or even heat sometimes will do this, keep the area clean and let it be.

  • Noooooo! Don't wash her face too much it makes it worse!! You should only wash baby's face once per day with warm water and a very gentle soap.

  • Just leave it alone. As she grows older, it will go away on it's own. Washing it, putting lotion on it, or anything else will probably just irritate it. Make sure you're using some kind of hypoallergenic laundry detergent, or any "free & clear" version thereof that way it doesn't make it worse.

  • Just wash her face with a wet washcloth, there really isn't much you can do other then that. It is just all the hormones from you coming out of her body, at least that is what my pedi always told me!
