  • I agree, most likely just baby acne. It's super common and should clear up in a couple more weeks.

  • Well 40% of babies get newborn acne between 2 wks and 6 mos. You will know if it is Acne.. Now if it is just little white bumps, that don't really look like pimples, they are called milk bumps. They are harmless, and will go away on their own. Not to worry. I hope this helped :)

  • Just like everyone else said its baby ance. Pimples are known to show up between 2 weeks and 2 months of age. This baby acne can last until the child is 4 to 6 months old. Its actually cause by the hormones mothers milk or from thw womb. Once you stop breast feeding or around 6 month, it should clear up. :) Hope that helps. My daughter only last a few weeks. Best of luck.

  • "baby acne" They are normal for that age of baby, and are not really acne. Just wash the baby's face and add mild baby lotion. It will go away on it's own.
