Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

Have you tried putting a little baby powder or corn startch in the crease? That will absorb most of what he drips and shouldn't cause any reaction.
I agree, a little baby powder. You should also wash his neck (just warm water on a cloth) each time you check him at night, for feedings or changings, so the milk doesn't sit there long. You might also want to try keeping him upright for a while after his feedings, so if he spits up, it's before you have gone back to sleep. I know that can be hard when you're tired, but try.
