  • This is common. Just use plan water.

  • It's normal. Pretty much every baby gets it. Do NOT put lotion on it, or anything else - just use a soft wet cloth to clean baby's face, no soap or anything. And do NOT pinch them! It'll go away in anywhere from a few days to a few weeks.

  • It's normal. My daughter had it bad when she was a baby, but it went away after a few months. Like PPs said, just don't put anything on it.

  • Oh, and the cause is hormonal. Baby's body still has your hormones for the first few months.

  • Breastmilk cleared it up overnight for my baby.

  • Both my girls got this. I was also told it was hormonal. I just washed their little faces with warm water and dried well. It did clear up in a few weeks.
