Dry cracked hands

The cold weather and my baby sucking on her hands has caused them to become dry and cracked.Is it okay to put lotion on her hands since she puts them in her mouth?

  • lanolin is terrific for any kid of dry skin and since it can be used for nipples, it is very safe for little ones to have in their mouth
