Anyone got any suggestions to help - my dd keeps licking her lips. Think David Tennant in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. She keeps getting sore patches around her mouth, otherwise I would just let her grow out of it.
Mine's the same, it drives me mad. This winter she got really scabby lips (looked like herpes at one point) and they didn't get better until school finished and I could force her to put lip balm on constantly throughout the day. I also got her to drink loads, I'm not sure how much that helped but they got better.
I don't know what you can do to make her stop, other than saying don't do that every time you spot her doing it, but you can mitigate the effects.
Don't use vaseline, although it's effective it's still petrochemical shite. We used Burt's Bees for a while (beeswax based) but then found Yes to Carrots which also has coconut oil in and is more emollient.
