Coleen Garcia just had her first moment of panic as a new mother.
In her Instagram Stories, Coleen shares that her son Amari started having rashes all over his face a few days after his birth.
Amari had what is called newborn acne, which is common among babies.
Coleen got "so praning" she immediately called her midwife and doctors.
And even when they all assured her that baby rashes are normal and will "go away... after some time," the ABS-CBN actress still "felt sorry" for her son.
Coleen decided to slather breast milk all over Amari's face, except for the eyes.
Here's what happened, according to the new mom, "Everything disppeared, except for the rashes sa eyes!"
She then dabbed some breast milk around her baby's eyes, and the acne faded as well.
Now, Amari is "so makinisssssssss."
Coleen affirms that breast milk is an effective home remedy for newborn acne as well as diaper rashes.
Coleen's breastfeeding journey
In her posts, the Kapamilya star reveals she has been "breastfeeding non-stop."
She relishes breastfeeding Amari, watching him fall asleep as he feeds until "he wakes up to feed again."
Coleen says she's been trying to put Amari to sleep so she can "get back to doing stuff."
But the new mother admits she just "can't resist him," and has a hard time leaving her baby alone.
Coleen and husband Billy Crawford welcomed Amari on September 10, 2020.
She gave birth at home.
