Chapped cheeks and chin
January 21, 2013 at 9:45 PM
So my five month old drools like crazy and is always rubbing his face of toys and stuff so he has become very chapped. Aside from lotion, any ideas on how to get it healed? Its hard to do when he constantly drools! Lol

    Vaseline maybe? We were starting to have the same problem with my dd but it's gotten better, for now. We didn't do anything with it but I'd like to see other answers

    The doc told me vaseline but I never had the guts to try it.

    Vaseline (petroleum jelly)! Put a thin layer on it and it will clear right up! :)

    I used lanolin that I have from bfing. My DD sucks her thumb so I wanted something safe if it made it into her mouth and it cleared up in a day.

    Don't do vaseline, it's NOT edible and can be harmful if baby gets it in his mouth.
    Lansinoh lanolin nipple cream works awesome, and it's completely non toxic. I always used that for my dd when she was chapped from teething, cleared it right up. :)

    Nipple cream(same thing u would use for breast feeding) but applied to baby.  Lanolin.  I am allergic to that so I used Earth Mama Angel Baby Nipple Butter.  Other options would be coconut oil or olive oil.
