  • Petroleum jelly mixed with medical grade lanolin (lansinoh) is safe for baby digestion. The lanolin is close to the moisture we have in our skin and the petroleum jelly will prevent evaporation.

  • If he has chapped lips, he needs more fluids. Whatever you use to heal them, give him extra fluids!
