Hi, my1 year old DD lips become very dry in this cold weather and she tends to rub them a lot lately and the lip skin become "flaky". Is there a lip balm specially for babies that I can get from the high street chemist? Do you use any particular brand? Is it safe if she licks them off confused?
Thanks for replying smile

I javent trued it but Would lanisoh or another nipple cream work? I know lanisoh doesn't have to be removed before feeding so shouldn't matter if she licks.

I use Epaderm for DD1's eczema on her face and around her lips. It is like a thick vaseline so acts as a barrier. I am sure she licks some of it off and she seems fine so far

Try QuenchTx Lip Butter. It was originally designed for children. With this cold weather kids tend to lick their lips which makes it worse. QuenchTx also smells good so kids don't mind having it put on.
