I am breast feeding my three week old, and he is getting alot of pimples, is this normal or is it something I am eating that is causing it?

Answer: Hi, It is normal for a newborn baby to get a pimply rash at around 3- 4 weeks. It will disappear without treatment – it doesn’t look too good but it goes away. Best wishes, Alex
