Eta, I have found that the Lansinoh brand works the best...Medela is too thin, IMO.
Yes! My son sometimes gets into the habit of licking his top lip until he has a red mustache. Lanolin protects his skin and makes it less likely for him to lick it. I also have an all natural healing balm that works well too, and we've found that Aquaphor works well in a pinch. I actually think that chap stick can make it worse when it is really bad.
