  • Yes, drool will do that, as it kind of chaps them. Put some vaseline or a little baby oil on them.

  • Chapped or Teething cheeks
    My sons are bright red all of the time because he is teething (5 months old)

  • My daughter gets super rosy red cheeks right before she cuts a tooth ...its also the only time she gets diaper rash. If she isn't running a fever, it is very likely a teething thing.
