In brief: Moisturizers

Aquaphor ointment is a better option than vaseline for dry chapped skin.
Also cream moisturizers are more lubricating than lotions. Cereve cream, acid manlte cream, and vanicream are very lubricating. Moisturise frequently for betterresults.

In brief: Mgt suggestion

I would suggest Eucerin or Cerave for babies several times per day as needed and avoiding products with fragrance.
Some babies at this age may develop atopic dermatitis which is a form of an allergic skin condition.
