    Does your baby or has your baby ever suffered from baby acne?

    Tristan has quite a lot of red bumps/spots on his cheeks and chin and the midwife has said that it is baby acne and that it should clear up in a couple of weeks.

    Is there anything I can do for it in the meantime? At times, the spots look quite angry - especially after he has been crying or has been feeding.

    My lil man did have spots for a week, midwife said it was because of some of my hormones still running through him?? and said they will be worse after he sleeps or crys as he is warmer then and this cause it to look worse and not to worry about it. :)

    Hopefully it will start to clear soon :) XxX

    Jay has this too :( A few spots started to appear about a week ago and within a couple of days he had them all over his face. The HV also told me not to worry about them and apparently they can be caused by their skin adjusting to the environment.

    They are starting to go down now and look a lot less sore, I just wish there was something we could use to make them disappear, but I don't think there is :shrug:

    Amelia had this when she was a few weeks old, its does look sooo sore and angry. The best thing is to just leave it, you could put some olive oil on it if it looks dry.

    I will post a pic of Amelia with spots and now without, her skin is perfect!

    My baby had bumps all over her body just like Whispers baby, but not really too many on her face. I freaked out and called the nurses and they said its completely normal and just happens because the baby is used to living in water and when they are out in the air their skin reacts. Its all gone now, didn't last too long. I didn't put anything on it.

    They can also get the little pimples on and off if you are breastfeeding.
