In brief: No

The baby acne is a common event that reflects hormones transferred during the pregnancy.
While the baby is floating in moisture, the skin is will not break out, but within 1-3 weeks after birth they do for many weeks until the hormone levels drop & the acne disappears. Although the acne is similar, it reflects maternal hormones, not what the kid may do > decade later.
