Super Dry Skin in 6 Month Old

My son has such dry skin. The last couple of days I have put on coconut oil and Eucerin lotion a few times a day and he just soaks it up. He is breastfed and drinks enough, so I don't think he is dehydrated. My mom was saying it could be something like a thyroid problem causing it, due to the fact that he still wakes up 3-4 times a night. He does not sleep through the night, and he may be uncomfortable. Has anyone experienced this before or have any suggestions? I plan on calling the pediatrian on Monday, but until then....Thank you!!
