  • My son's pediatrician advised me to do NOTHING to the baby acne. Just be sure not to be lotion on it, because that will make it much worse. I would never pick and pop on my baby's face... That hurts!

    seriously, don't do that to your baby. it's useless and if it's hurting your baby, it is most certainly cruel.

  • I'm not sure that I think it is crule so much as gross and unesisary. It heals faster on it's own, and if you really don't like the looks of it AD works miricles. Cute baby pics. :)

    sorry for the spelling errors.

  • OMG!!!! Are you doing that???? Yes it is cruel and soooo unnessary. If your baby has acne then it b/c of what you are feeding him/her.

  • My babies never had acne, but popping it or picking it would most certainly cause it to spread. I would imagine that sensitivity to soap could also cause something like that.

  • Uhm no, i dont have my baby yet. Lets not say im doing it. I think its mean too...

  • Only once did I ever do something similar to that. He had a small pimple that had popped on its own, I just helped, rather with my nails picked the icky stuff off of his face, but no I would never pick his little baby zits.
