Cracked, bleeding lips

Lately my six month old's lips have gotten so dry that they crack and bleed and he seems pretty uncomfortable, especially when eating. Is there anything that I can safely put on them to help him out, seeing as how whatever is on his lips he'll end up swallowing?

Aquaphor is not petroleum based, it is water based. The hospital used it on my preemie when he was in the hospital and on oxygen and it was making his lips really dry. So, I'd say if it's safe for a 2 pound baby, your little guy should be ok. I think it's a little expensive but well worth it and it lasts a long time. I had a trial size of it forever.
