  • I have used it before. It works as a barrier. I prefer to use Auqaphor though. It has been the only thing that has worked for my daughter. It is more expensive but our whole family uses it for cuts, scrapes, rashes, and dry skin because it helps things heal faster.

  • Sure... I like basic cosmetics--- Vaseline, Pond's Cold Cream, Noxema...

    And, Vaseline is good for sore little baby butts, ---great for any type of chapping.

    I melt a little of my favorite lipstick in it, then put it in a jar. This mix gives it a touch of color that's very flattering, plus it doesn't come off on your guy !

  • No. Vaseline is a petroleum product and especially for baby use, the skin cannot breathe.

  • I use it in to protect my daughter's skin at night. It's much cheaper than using diaper rash cream.
