SHEA BUTTER!! its great for skin n natural good for bbys skin too... i usually use cocoa butter with shea butter for my own lips n its really gud, but for bby pure shea butter is better

try some white parraficin, my son was hospitalised when he was born adn thats what the hospitals use to keep the lips moist. Its a vaseline like substance.

I use vaseline, it usually helps heal the chapped lips/skin in no time and prevents the drool from continuing to dry out the skin. .
