If you notice that your baby has chapped or cracked lips, chances are it has something to do with the dry, cold weather.
Soothe chapped lips easily with a little of your breast milk, or if you’re no longer feeding, petroleum jelly or nipple balm on a cotton bud applied to your baby’s chapped lips should do the trick.
Cracked lips are generally nothing to worry about, but if you don’t see an improvement after trying these remedies, check in with your GP.
