  • Couple of things - plain vaseline is really good at bedtime and REALLy safe. But it is pretty messing for the clothes during the day so I bought some Aveeno Baby (w Oatmeal) and it is working really well. My 10mo old drooled from 3mo t0 10mo when he finally got 2 teeth. Good luck.

  • We always dab (not rubbed) the area dry frequently and we also had a moisture stick from Johnson & Johnson that we would rub on.
