BABY CARE TIP
If your baby’s face is covered in little pimples, don’t be tempted to pop or exfoliate them. This is quite common and a result of your hormones leaving her body. They should disappear after about two weeks. Also, if your baby’s scalp has flaky, dry skin that looks like dandruff, or thick, oily, yellowish or brown scaling or crusting patches, it’s probably cradle cap. It’s very common – especially in the first three months. It’s not caused by poor hygiene, and if it doesn’t clear up on its own, rub some olive oil on your baby’s head and comb it out. Never pick it, as this could cause infection.
