Anyone else's LOs have this?

After about a week, it appeared on his one cheek, and now its moved over to his other cheek and some on his chin.

Googling says to wash their face every day with mild baby soap and water...I have just been wiping it and not using soap since I don't want it to go in the other direction of dry skin, but its spreading and not going away.

Any advice or what has worked for you now or in the past?

Ava has it on her noise/forehead/under eyes
I've been wiping her face down daily too as I read the same thing. Liz said she asked her ped (i believe) and its just a matter of time to clear up.

Yup ped said to give it time unless it's really bad then he would dispense something.

I know some seen on Facebook... but Summer has it as well. I noticed it's mainly on one cheek, and it's the one my hand is usually on (or the one she lays on) when I feed her. She's always on the same one because the right boob I hold football hold when I feed her, leaving the right cheek down... and the left boob I hold a cradle hold, also leaving her right cheek down. I try to wipe her face after nursing but it doesn't seem to help too much. UGH I just hate how ugly it is LOL

His doctor told me it's just something babies go through and generally fades by the second month. There's not much we can do about it but it will pass. I'm only washing his face with cleanser when we give him baths. Otherwise I just wipe his face with a wet cloth. He already has dry skin on his forehead so I don't want to make it worse. And since it's driven by hormones, I don't think that any amount of cleansing will make it go away. Just time.

Noah has it on hi face and chest - it comes up in different places each day and is only really noticeable when hes cross or crying, when hes sleeping and quiet the bumps are still there but they are a more neutral color.
The health nurse said not to use any baby soaps or creams on them and just wash with warm water - we can use silcocks base if it looks like he getting dry skin but thats it. Hopefully it will go away soon

Madeline had it for about a week, but it's gone now. It's just the hormones getting out of their systems

Pippa has it on her forehead. I put breast milk on it, which seems to help.

Melanie had it bad, it was all over her face, especially her chin. It started getting better last week and looks much better now. Her brother had it too so I know it will go away on it's own. I was told by their doctors and my dermatologist not to use any soap (including baby wash) on it because it can irritate it more.

I'll remember this in case Michaela gets it.

I was told breast milk helps it but I haven't tried it yet.
