Where's that Gerber face?
Still wondering where the soft pink skin and rosy cheeks are? While some babies are clear-skinned from day one, many newbies develop skin sensitivities like acne and eczema in their first month. Baby will probably outgrow these in a few months, but in the meantime, make sure to use gentle cleansers or (in severe cases) cortisone treatments as recommended by your doc.
[tip] Breastfeeding mommies: Apply a lanolin cream such as Lansinoh on your nipples between feedings to relieve any pain or dryness.
