    Default Baby Body Odour

    I've just noticed my baby has armpit odour! It smells like adult B.O. When I google this topic I get scared because it talks about hormone problems or metabolic diseases. Baby seems very healthy otherwise. I wash the armpits with soap and within an hour the smell is back. Has anyone's baby gone through this?

    Is there a possibility that it is yeast? Yeast has a very distinct smell though that I would not normally attribute to B.O. My chunky babies would get yeast in all of their creases if I wasn't careful. It thrives in warm, moist and dark locations. You can try corn starch and keeping them dry or try some topical yeast cream if it was.
