Wind Burn

My dd is 7 months old. Her cheeks are really red. I am assuming that this is either because she is getting her upper teeth and/or because of the cold wind when I take her in and out of the car.
Is there anything I can safely put on her cheeks to get the dryness out?

  • I use Aquaphor or vaseline for that. It won't sting like lotion.

  • I always used Eucerin cream. Get the cheeks damp first then rub it in. Vaseline stains clothes thats why I never used it when they were babies except on their bottom as a barrier
