baby acne

Baby's often get baby acne when they're a few weeks/months old - I believe it's caused by the change in the hormones but it goes after a few weeks/month. If you google it you should get some pics to compare.

DD's face was covered in spots. We found stopping using fabric conditioner when laundering her clothes sorted the problem.

I put Aveeno on DD2 spots and they cleared up almost overnight. Any good emollient for dry skin should do the same though.

DS had this and it cleared up by itself after a couple of weeks. It didn't seem to bother him though.
