My daughter has cradle cap that seems to be getting worse. Any tips to help? I have been putting baby oil on her head and brushing with a soft brush, but that does not seem to help.
I haven't had to deal with cradle cap, but other mom's have recommended this shampoo for it on another board I read
I bought it and use it as a preventative measure
Put baby oil on the scalp, brush the head with a soft baby brush then wash her hair. Worked like a charm for my son!
nealbl:My pedi told me yesterday to use selson blue once a week on her head
This is the hippie chick in me coming out, but I have a theory I haven't tested yet...breastmilk. It may seem totally crazy, but my thinking is that if if can help with blocked tear ducts and cuts and scrapes, it might as well be worth a shot at cradle cap! :)
I'd squirt some on LO's head, brush gently then wash as usual. Like I said, this is just a theory, but it certainly won't hurt to try!
LSU628:I swear by California Babies Tea Tree Oil shampoo. It cleared up even the eczema flakes on DD's head and she hasn't had any issues/flakes since. I tried the oil and all it did was make DD's hair gross and the flakes just clumped more.
