    Question Baby's lips...

    My babys lips look chapped? is this normal? what is it? Ive started using lansinoh's lan on my nipples hoping it would help his lips and it just makes his lips look they are raw or something, but the chap look comes back after a few hours.

    12 days old. His fingers and belly are peeling, I guess I never considered that his lips would too!

    my kids did that too,
    Breastmilk would be a good thing to put on it.
    If it get red and looks infected then maybe a call to the doctor!
    Does baby have white patches in their mouth? or you sore nipples.
    That can mean thrush.

    Could they be sucking blisters? My son has those and his lips look they are chapped and cracked but aren't. Sucking blisters are normal.

    His tongue is white but I think its just milk tongue, as it comes and goes, and my nipples are not bright pink or red or aggravated at all. Not sore. I thought maybe suckig blisters/suck pad. But of course I cant find any pics online to compare lol

    yea come to think about it one of my 4 got a sucking blister on their lip.
    I cann't think now who..
    It was round and the skin sort of pealed off. right in the center of thier top lip.
    glad you don't have any problems with thrush thats hard to kick!
