My son (who is 5 weeks old) has these bumps all over his face it seems to be getting worse. He sees his doctor Feb. 15th for a six week check up.

It looks like baby acne to me. I could be wrong, but that's what it looks like. How long has he had them for? I was told that when a baby is born it has hormones from the mother which causes the acne. If that's what it is, it will go away on it's own over time and I don't believe there is anything you can really do to help it. My youngest had it pretty bad. But I would definitely make sure you ask your doctor.

Looks like baby acne or milk bumps as I call them.
Baby's hormones are shifting just as yours are.

My youngest is 5 weeks old and they come and go on her. They seem worse on days she cluster feeds

Does she have them in her mouth or on her hands?

Looks like baby acne. Most, if not all babie get it. Just leave it alone and it will go away.

No he doesn't. Just on his face.

Quoting PinkButterfly66:

I would call the doctor, mainly because it is something you aren't sure about. Please update us when you  find out?
