3 week old baby lips are peeling

Everytime she breastfeeds her lips start to peel I know its because her mouth is moist sucking on the breast for so long but is there a way I can prevent this from happening

  • No. It will form a little callous then come off. Normal.

  • Is it chapped lips? If so a little vaseline would help.
