  • Actually those little bumps are baby acne because the are going through hormonal changes. I've learned just to wash their face 2-3 times a day with warm water and it helps alot. Try to avoid milk on their face because it can cause it to get worse, so make sure you wipe it off as soon as possible.

  • It might be infantile acne. It should clear up on its own. Don't scrub or use anything on it, and don't pop them.

    My little one's went away in a couple of weeks.

  • My baby girl had these for like 3 weeks. My pedi said it was normal and to leave it alone it would go away on its own. Just hormonal changes.

  • Time. Nothing is going to get rid of baby acne but time. Your hormones have to work their way out of baby's system, and that takes time.
