Anyone else dealing with this plague? tips? Alice is coated! All across her face, neck, chest...
we have it too! phoenix is a month old tomorrow and it doesn't seem to be going anywhere... i heard it can take up to a couple of months...but hopefully it'll clear up soon. he's got it on his face, but also on his belly, legs, i can even see it under his hair...though they are just red dots there....he doesn't seem to be at all bothered by it. so i'm just being patient. i only rinse with water. and on his face i gently pass a wash cloth over. that's my own regime, so i figure it's fine for him too!
hugs mamas and babies.
Eliot's is just clearing, and he was 6 weeks yesterday. He's still a bit spotty, though! I wipe him gently with warm water and a soft washcloth, and will wash his face with a tiny amount of our baby mild Dr. Bronners on bath days (which are about twice a week, since we bathe together and that's not easy with a two year old!).
I actually popped one of his pimples . It was just so huge and green and really awful looking - so I washed my hands and just nicked it with the edge of my pinky nail so it could drain. I know you are never ever supposed to, but it was there for days and I just couldn't stand it anymore. I'm a horrible mother.
I've been doing Aveeno baby wash at bath time or on a wash cloth and A&D ointment on Claira's face. Has helped a ton so far. I think her's might have been more of a rash style acne though. I accidentally made her face breakout by putting baby oil on her face when it was dry. Then the bumps starting trying out and flaking so I started with the A&D.
Kelley! I've been tempted to do the same.
Allora also has the baby acne. She's had some since she was a couple days old, just a bit here and there, but a week or so ago she started getting quite a bit more. Now it looks like it's toning down some (she's 6 1/2 weeks now) but we'll see how it goes. It's not aesthetically pleasing but oh well, I suppose it's the normal course of things.
