Stinky baby armpits anyone?

Hi guys, my son just turned 1 last week, and it is summer here and I have noticed if he has gotten really upset or run around alot on a hot day his armpits smell musty, I give him a bath everynight and powder his armpits before bed and its not everyday that they smell, is this normal or at least a little common? He is a big boy 27.5 pounds and very very active and its in the 90s here so I dont know if that makes a difference. Anybody else with stinky little boys lol?

  • Any fold of skin is going to get stinky. Under baby's chins or any of their little fat folds.

  • Clean it constantly. Talk to a Dr though, Maybe baby powder under the arms in the morning.
