Could easily be chapped and dry due to cold weather. Lotion or something like coconut oil will help.

My son overheats easily & that’s the 1st sign

It’s usually due to the weather. The air being very cold dries out the skin, much like having chapped lips.


Can you poast pik , couldv bean hot , bit untill I see it I wouldn’t know

Could be from teething, wind burn, extreme temps, a skin reaction to fragrance in the home/laundry soap, or a food allergy. I wouldn’t be too concerned as long as your little one is acting normal, just bring it up at the doctors :grinning:


My daughters cheeks turn read when she’s teething

My sons cheeks turn red when he’s teething or when he’s too warm

  1. Chapped from the cold/weather.

  2. Too much sugar. I know you said they were only 9 months old but are you giving them apple juice?? If so, do half juice/half water.

  3. Teething.

Teething most likely :slight_smile:

Teething, fever, ear infection, so many reasons. Check for a temp,if none and it doesn’t bother him just ask the doctor tomorrow

Teething or just chapped from the cold! My son always had red cheeks when he was teething

Could be a anything but rest assured it’s 99% probably something simple I know my son did and he had eczema which was his cause use lotion that’s is eczema formed or just plain Vaseline a couple times a day

Fifth’s disease also known as slapped cheek syndrome. Both my kids had it when they were little. It’s a virus

Or are you starting him on baby food or trying people food yet. My daughters cheeks were red when she tried tomatoes and she’s not allergic. She’s 4 years old now and loves them. She eats them all the time and it doesn’t happen anymore but when she was a baby it would happen. Oh and strawberries too.

Weather, allergies, my daughter would get her cheeks red from eating certain food would irritate her skin or ezcema.

Could be hot,could have a fever,could just be windburn if outside and windy
,teething, or sunburn. Start by checking temperature. Go from there. Feel if cheeks feel dry or hot.

Probably teething!!!
