They’re no longer newborns, but they’re definitely still babies. They seem so small and fragile – parents often find themselves concerned about the effects of the world on their baby: Is this medication safe? Should he have this vaccine? Is she sick or just hungry?

Is he supposed to do that? Is she supposed to have that many poops in one day? Peruse the articles below, do a search, or ask Dr. Greene for advice if you don’t find the answer to your questions.

Infantile Acne

Dr. Greene, my son is now 17 months and still has a whitehead on his cheek, and he also has blackheads. If he got them from breast-feeding I sure won’t breast-feed the next one. I would really like his skin to clear up already, and the whitehead on his face is raised and very obvious. I have even tried to use pore strips to remove them. I am desperate and depressed to see my poor baby’s skin so teen-aged already. Help!!!!!!!!
