Two weeks old and my baby has acne! How did this even happen? Not sure of the cause, I decided to start weeding out the possibilities. Tackling the situation head on, I stopped taking my pain medication and stopped eating spicy foods since something in my breastmilk could be the possible culprit. Next, I re-washed all of her already cleaned clothes in plain water, just to rinse off the detergent since I read somewhere that it could be too harsh for the baby. My last and final precaution was to not let her face touch any surface without using her blanket as a barrier. Nope, not even mommy’s chest. Skin to skin time would have to wait until her face cleared up. After doing all of this, I saw a tiny change in my baby’s face, but that was it. My first born also dealt with this so I knew it could take weeks or even months to clear up. After not seeing any real change, I decided to give up my “baby acne be gone” quest and just wait it out.
Then, the night that I decided to bathe my little bundle in Mustela’s 2 in 1 hair and body wash for babies, there was a major change in her face. The bumps were still there, but the redness was gone! Seeing the difference, I’ve decided to wash her face with this every night. Little by little, the bumps are fading and the redness is almost nonexistent. I’m almost certain that this product wasn’t created to treat baby acne, and my outcome is just a coincidence. However, I’m pretty sure that the fact that this product is hypoallergenic has something to do with it.
Even though it’s purpose is to wash the hair and body, this product has worked a miracle for my baby’s skin problem and I’m forever thankful! The Mustela hair and body wash for babies is simply amazing!
