DD (15 months old) has gotten bright red cheeks the last two days while nursing in the evening. They don't seem to bother her. When it first happened last night we called the nurse line and were told she probably has fifth disease. I noticed a bumpy rash on her arm later last night so that seemed to confirm it.

I just wonder why she gets the red cheeks only while nursing? They fade within minutes. Is it possible she's allergic to something in my breast milk?

Thanks for any advice.

Your body + her body + fifth disease = one hot baby. Just happens. That's normal. It can also happen when they get other viral nuisances.

Two of our children get bright red cheeks when they get a cold, and even a day or two before it becomes obvious that they have come down with something....

Warm wishes,
Tonya
