  • boil bottles and pacifiers regularly between washing. I do it every 3 days. Or just throw it all away and buy new stuff it may be an allergy. If that still doesnt help see the doctor

  • I also sterilize my sons bottles and nipples, but I think what you're talking about is chapped skin. When my son gets this, I use a moisturizing lip balm on him. It seems to work just fine. He's also around the same age as your daughter.

  • that happened to my daughter. this was when she was younger, i took her to the dr and they told me its caused by things like dirty bottle nipples or toys going in her mouth....
