Avent has a special lotion for dryness or chapness for babies. Also when their face gets chaped if you put vasoline on it it is safe and really helps.

All of my kids had dry cheeks as babies.  It was from the drool I think.  I used Aquaphor and it worked well

Baby oil or vasoline will work a lot better.  Don't use excessive amounts as a little bit goes a long way.  Regular baby lotion doesn't work very well for kids with dry skin.  Aveeno is also really good for dry skin.  They have Aveeno baby products out now that are perfect for the little ones senstive skin.  I believe Aveeno even has one made for dry skin.  I would check that out.  I've seen the Aveeno products at Babies R Us and Target.

 

Best of Luck

Aquaphor.  Lotion can actually dry babies faces out

We used Aveeno Baby. It comes with a dark blue cap...Soothing Relief Moisture Cream. They also make a Soothing Relief Creamy Wash. It's gentler than regular baby shampoo/wash.

Vaseline works well, too, but it does wipe of easily, especially if they're rolling around on the sheet/blanket.

It's also important to apply the lotion after a bath. That's a critical time to use it.

eurcerine cream. in the big bucket its kinda expensive but it works wonders and lasts forever. i used it on all of my babies cuz they got eczema really bad.

I'm an aesthetician ( I do skin) and I'm tellin ya anything with petroleum (aka vaseline) in it will seem to moisturize but it actually ends up drying skin out MORE in the end. (that's why chapstick is addictive) look around for something WITHOUT petroleum,..it's works GREAT as a skin PROTECTANT but not as a moisturizer. I use cetaphil moisturizer for dry or sensitive skin on my baby and I never have any problems. Btw the cetaphil cleanser is also good for babies who have baby acne(mine had it BADLY 4 weeks after he was born, poor thing). Take a pea sized amount and gently rub it all over the area and then use a very soft wet cloth and wipe it off, but be gentle.

Eucerin and Aquaphor(made by Eucerin) are both good products as well.  Aquaphor DOES have petroleum in it but if your babies problem is from drool then it will work wonders, but it sounds from your post like it's from the dry winter air. So if that's the case, a cream or lotion type thing will work better.
