Also he has dry skin that's peeling in places, most noticeably on his scalp. I have some Eucerin ointment that I've tried but it just seems to make it feel greasy. Any suggestions there? Or should I just leave it alone?
And am I a terrible person because I haven't given him a proper bath yet? Wiped him down with a washcloth a few times but no full bath. He just doesn't seem that dirty.
as far as i know there is no safe way to get rid of milia, just have to wait it out. My baby's face is covered in it and it makes me sad. call me vain, but i want him to have beautiful skin. (doesn't stop me from smooching and nuzzling up on him, though.)

i don't know what gets rid of milia, it does disappear one day. for baby acne (they look like pimples), breastmilk gets rid of them

Evan had cradle cap and we used baby oil massaged into his scalp, though we didn't do it before bathtime. We did it DURING bath, then just let it soak itself into his skin overnight.
And I haven't really given Sadie a full bath either, yet. Sponge baths 1-2x per week, but that's about it. It's really, really dry in our house during the winter and I don't want her skin getting drier than it already is...I had that issue with Evan and was constantly massaging him with oil.
For the acne, honestly, leave it alone. It goes away.
