Any miracle tips? I know it's normal, but ick. My daughter never got it this bad. Today I put a few drops of tea tree oil in a little water and cleaned his face with a cotton ball, and that seems to have helped a little. Any other tricks?

I thought breastmilk at first but he has breastmilk all over his cheeks all the time anyway, and it just seems sticky!

So you don't think diluted tea tree oil is okay? Could it be harmful?

I would just leave it alone...it's just your hormones working through his system and it'll go away when it's ready. No amount of tea tree oil will help...not to mention, that, even diluted, it can be harsh stuff.

Grey had pretty bad too- it went away on its own after a week. My skin went crazy right before I had him so we matched for a while. :LOL I put some breast milk on his- maybe that helped it go away?
