Could be infection.: Very young infants don't give us good clues to how sick they are. If the cheek is really swollen and red, it may be an infection. It may just be eczema. Never guess with any baby under 3 months of age. If you are concerned, have her checked.

Swollen cheek: Although your baby seems fine, i recommend that she be seen by her pediatrician. The swelling can caused by trauma, infection, cyst among other things.
