If your breastfeeding put some of your milk on it. Other than that nothing just leave it it will go away on its own.

Breastmilk is good for it if you have any. Otherwise just let it be, it eventually goes away (:

I made my own sugar scrub with coconut oil and lavender essential oil. Works great for cradle cap and the dry flaky skin babies get a week or so after birth.

Mittens on his hands and wash his face with mild baby soap once a day. I used these mutesla face wipes and it was gone in a couple of days. Its normal and will go away on its own.

Ohh poor sweet baby :( that just looks uncomfortable to me. I used to wipe down my sons face before bed with a wipe or a wash cloth and that helped clear his acne up very well.

Just leave it alone. It goes away eventually. His skin is to sensitive for anything.

Our LO had it too and it goes away on its own. Their skin heals very quickly so it lasts a lot shorter than when we get it at an older age.

Don't clean it with soap. Just use a warm wet wash cloth to keep it clean. I also slathered him in baby Aquaphor to keep it from being dry and uncomfortable! Aquaphor is what they use on babies in the NICU because it doesn't irritate!

Don't squeeze or apply anything is what I feel. It will go on its own. My LO had it too.

I used honest brand healing balm. It cleared after 10 days:) My peds doctor approved what's in it. It's all natural:)

The only thing I would say to put on there is breast milk. It's liquid gold!
