i have the same issue with Chelsea. The air is so dry in our house because of the heat blaring. Aveeno has a lotion for babies with extra dry skin or eczema...that seems to be working well.

It is at Walgreen's, Target, pretty much any store that has a good selection of lotion. I found it in with the regular lotion, not in the baby section. I got a tube of 1.75oz for $4.99 but a little goes a long way! They are greasy for a few minutes afterward but it has been the only thing that healed his rosy cheeks!

Well Aquaphor is it then! Do you know if they have it at CVS or Rite Aid? Its to cold to go all the way to Target.


Sincere came on his due date Nov 4th 2006. He is the best thing I have ever done.

I have/had the same issue with Olivia's cheeks. I tried other products, but have been using Aquaphor and her cheeks are as soft as day one. I am really pleased with this product.

CRUMBYSMOM: I went to Target last night and got Aquaphor, my cousin is a labor and delivery nurse and she said they use it on all the new babies when they have skin irritations. I put it on at about 7 last night and by bed time at 9:30, he was so soft!!! I could not believe it. It isn't too pricey either. Hope that helps!

PRESLEY93099- Sincere has the exact same thing. His little checks are so dry from the heat blasting in here. I am so worried he is cold I have the heat on high. It drys my dragon skin, my face feels like sand paper so his little skin didn't have a chance. Are bed is right in front of two vents. Please post which one you get and works. There is a whole foods down the street so I can get that one but let me know which one you decide on.

I buy Lobello for my lips in the winter - and one day smeared it all over my dd cheeks when we were out for a walk - her cheeks were so smooth and soft after that - My dh thinks it is crazy, and that our girls will be smearing chapstick all over their faces when they are older - but it worked!

There is also a company called California Baby that makes some awesome products. I use mostly their stuff on Georgie cuz she has such dry skin.

The pedi told me to use Aquaphor and I have a small tube of that from the hospital but I think I will order from Badger and just use the aquaphor until it gets here. Thanks!

I used the Aveeno on Max and it worked good. Sorry, can't help you here. Maybe call the pedi and see if they can suggest some baby friendly product?

Ryan has chapped cheeks from the bitter cold here in Chicago, not to mention the dryness from having the heat blasting in the house...

I have tried just about everything and nothing is working! Here is what I have used to no avail, anyone have something else that has helped them...

Aveeno Baby, baby oil, Johnson's Baby Lotion, Balmex, Desitin, Vaseline, Lubriderm (none of it is helping and I am not sure what else to do)

He doesn't seem to be in any pain or discomfort, but it is red and dry to the touch! Help...
