Aquaphor

This is one of the greatest products I have used in a really long time. My SIL told me about Aquaphor one day when I was telling her about Maddox. She said she thought that Every Mom knew about Aquaphor. What? I have NEVER heard of the stuff! I'm hoping I'm not the only Mom out there who hasn't heard of Aquaphor.

At the time, Maddox had a really red, chapped, painful looking circle around his mouth where his binkie touches his skin. He only had his binkie when he was put down for a nap or bedtime and we would take it has soon as he was asleep. That didn't help.

I tried putting chapstick on him and vasoline. Nothing was working. So when I was told about this I was a little skeptical that it would actually work. But she said she swears by it, and it keeps her kids chap-free. She always buys the tubs Aquaphor comes in-but I thought I'd try the chapstick size.

I put it on Maddox as soon as we got in the car. He LOVES having this stuff put on! I put it on him before I gave him his binkie to "create a seal" as my SIL suggested. By the same time the next day he was looking remarkably better. Within 3 days his chapped circle was gone.

I had fought for several months to get rid of Max's chapped mouth to no avail. I now have a tube of Aquaphor in several of my bags and one in the boys sleep room. It always seems like when I need one it is nowhere to be found. Acutally, Maddox really likes to hold it when he sleeps. I pulled his crib out last month and found 3 of our tubes.

So there it is. If you haven't heard of it before go try it. And if you have heard of it . . . why didn't you tell me about it!

I LOVE Aquaphor! I can't believe you haven't seen me whip my tube of it out of my purse before! I use it for my own lips and put it under my eyes at night. I have used it since high school when I was on Accutane. Amazing miracle stuff!

I've heard of the greatness of this product, though have never went and bought some. I'll have to try it sometime.
