Baby acne is a common thing among infants, it's caused by immature pores and over production of oils. Somethings can also cause it to be worse, such as hormones from breastfeeding, eating oily, high-fat foods, and being overly hot. The good news is while it's not pretty, it doesn't hurt the baby, though it can be a tad irritating. To naturally help clear it up, simply rub warm breastmilk on baby's face every few hours. I usually do it each time he nurses in the day since I pump the opposite side. Here are the 24 hour results so feel free to check them out and give them a try! As always we thank you for joining us today, and till next time, keep raising a sustainable future!
High five to all moms who gave or tried to give their little ones the very best start! We are almost 1 month in and going strong, I'm so thankful to my nurse in the hospital who supported me and was great encouragement and to my husband and best friend Chrystal for being my biggest supporters.
If you could give other moms, and moms-to-be, one piece of advice on breastfeeding, what would it be?
Stuffy noses can be a common and annoying problem for infants. Often times it can make nursing difficult and sleep, even harder. There are many, many amazing things that breast milk can do aside from helping a baby grow. Breast milk is natural and a great alternative to medications, which might even make the situation worse. For this common issue we use breast milk to completely cure the stuffy nose. Just squirt a few drops of breast milk into your baby’s nose while he, or she, is lying down. They should start sneezing like crazy in a moment which will help them sneeze out all of the stuff that was causing their poor little nose to be stuffy. When this happens, use a bulb to suction the stuffies out from the nose. Repeat suction and possibly the breast milk, for those really stuffy occasions, till the baby sounds clear and can breathe easily again. Voila! Happy baby not worrying about trying to breathe when nursing or playing. Till next time, raise a sustainable future!
