He definitely produces saliva in excess (: Didn't think of that as an irritant though, so thanks. I'll try some lanolin too. I had used it when he was first born, but abandoned it as I didn't love the feel of it-- kinda makes me stick to my nursing top. I can use nursing pads to keep a barrier between my top & breasts though, but it's a bit bulky & I'm finally not leaking milk every time I see or hear a baby so I was kinda happy to be able to remove those from my wardrobe (:
