  Hello all moms, my newborn is 7 weeks today, and he has this rush on his left cheek for a few day now, and it look red, rounded. It's also sprat around, do any of you know what that is? I am not too sure that is a rush, cuz it look rounded, like a ring. Please help, he has a doctor apt till next month. many thanks~kids stocking

Newborns have very sensitive skin, especially this time of year. It is probably just eczema (sp). Make sure you are using a sensitive skin bath wash (I use Dove) and a good lotion. My pediatrition recommended Lubriderm.

  There is always some kind of funny newborn stuff like baby acne and what not..I would try not to worry about it unless it seems to be bothering him.embarrassed

sounds like your babys cheeks are chapped. don't worry its nothing serious. with my son i put baby oil on his cheeks he used to get that all the time. it works! hope that helps!

 Thanks, I'll put some baby oils on him when he's awake.
