My LO is 10 days old and started having red blotches on his cheeks last night. They seem to come and go and I've noticed they get worse while i'm BFing him. They are red blotches with a tiny white dot in the middle. They are on his cheeks and chin close to his mouth. Here's a pic. Is this normal? Any thoughts on what it might by?
I also noticed that his top inner lip is white. It's hard to touch, like a chapped/dry lip. Is this normal? Could it be from BFing?
TIA for any advice/help. I'm a first time mom and have no idea if these things are normal or not. I have a lot of food allergies/intolerance so i'm worried i've passed them on to LO. He's also having a lot of gas. His face turns bright red after BFing and he grunts, strains, cries and looks like he's in pain. It doesn't last too long, I hold him and tap his bottom a little and it seems to pass. But i'm worried he may be allergic to something i'm eating.
