(Sorry it's not clicky!)
NandaB:My son had it. I rubbed gently with a washcloth during bathtime and the put baby oil on it. I used the soft baby brush to loosen it up. It went away pretty quickly.
This is what they told us to do in parenting class.
leasaj:I rubbed baby oil on head and let sit for 510 min before giving bath and washing hair. Then I used baby brush and brushed/massaged in all directions. Throughout day I would brush several times. Repeat following day. My LO was cleared up in less than a week but I caught it early
This. My midwife also told me that you can use olive oil. Wish I had known that with my first two. I bought baby oil to get rid of their cradle cap, and that is the only thing I have ever used it for. Still have a whole bottle laying around almost 4 years after the last use, lol!
ETA: Don't try to wait it out. I think I missed some when I was trying to clear up DD2's and I'm convinced she still has it. :(
I used baby oil and a very soft bristled tooth brush. I put the oil on the bristles and massaged his head in small circles. Once the dead skin loosened up I washed his head with baby shampoo to remove the oil and loose flakes. Did this the following night as well and it is all gone. He did lose some of his fine baby hair in the process but I'm sure that was going to fall out anyway. Good luck.
