That is our next move. We had asked a mentor and she said it looked normal that sometimes the kittens get those bumps but that they go away as the kittens begin to age but it worries me still.

@Misty0414 It's not uncommon for babies to have lumpy skin like that. I've seen it multiple times. First time it happened my vet recommended rinsing the baby with dilute chlorhexadine but honestly I've seen it enough times since that I don't think it's a problem at all and it clears up on its own.
Congrats on the babies & happy mom!

I absolutely appreciate the responses. I’ve been a nervous wreck. Thank you for your help.

Bumps are subsiding but skin feels dry. I don’t want to bathe them yet as they are only 3 weeks old. I feel like they need some sort of moisturizer.

You could try some olive oil massage?

I just personally feel like olive oil soaked into the skin better, but that’s just my preference.
