  • Baby acne is common. don't do anything other than wiping her face down after feeding. It will go away. Resist the urge to pick at them or they can scar.

  • We call it kissing bumps...babies skin is very sensitive...I would stop people from kissing her on the cheek and tell them to kiss her on her hands...
