is mine the only baby still with baby acne?

Aidan is 6 weeks old and still has a good bit of it. I was told by a doctor friend with baby #3 that it peaks around 7 weeks... so that'd be next week for us but I'm looking at all of the baby pics... and everyone's baby seems so clear-skinned!

Can't wait for the rash to go away completely on my lil guy... it's not such fun for the pics!

my kids always seem to have clear skin for the first four weeks, then get baby acne for the next three or so weeks (cradle cap, too--fun!). For me, that's an excuse to take lots of hands and feet pictures.

Dd is almost 5 weeks old and starting to get little red spots everywhere...here we go!

Ozzy is 7 weeks old today (OMG has it already been 7 weeks), and he's still got a bit of lingering acne. His big sis had it bad, too. It's definitely improved and is clearing up (although he also has a touch of cradle cap on his eyebrows, same as Em did). I can't wait for it clear up all the way, but *shrug* just a part of babyhood.

Ellie had pretty significant baby acne from about 5-6.5 weeks; she's 7.5 weeks now (holy cow!) and it seems mostly cleared up...

DS still has it pretty bad at almost 7 weeks.

well I know we all are looking forward to clear skinned babies but I do feel better for not being alone!

Clayton's comes and goes. If he gets hot or mad it'll flare up then when he's calm and happy it'll go down. It's odd.

DS1 and DS2 both had it bad at 4-6 weeks. DS2 is 6 1/2 weeks now and it's clearing, it only really is noticable now when he's mad and his face flushes.

Tso has (had?) it, he's 4 weeks though. We just got back from the doc and it's 'become eczema' - it looks so sore shame.
