    Hey ladies, good evening.

    Just bathed the rugrat and when I picked her up and kissed her cheek I noticed a cheesy smell.

    I thought it might be her neck rolls (even though I do these a millions times in the bath with a sponge and loads of baby wash so was a little surprised.....) so I cleaned then again with cotton wool balls making sure I got right in there!

    Anyway, I then fed her and picked her up to burp her and could stil smell it. It turns out it is her ear. Only one ear, the other smells fresh as a daisy.

    So I have cleaned this out thoroughly but it still whiffs of cheese. I cannot see any wax.

    She has been a bit fussy past 3 days, could she maybe have something wrong with it? I haven't noticed anything abnormal with it i.e. discharge?

    I have checked behind, and cleaned the whole area inside and out and behind!

    Any thoughts?:flower:

    Oh yes! this is the milk under the neck rolls and when it drips around the ears too, turns all cheesey! loverly :D ( If you use formula that is, if not could be a bit of sick)
    I found LO stopped getting this problem at around 5 months, she had better control of the bottle
