Cradle cap

Lo has some cradle cap and a family member told me to put Vaseline on his head overnight and then wash it. Any one have any other tricks that have worked?

Re: Cradle cap

  • I was told oil. So if DD gets it I'll be using coconut oil. :)

  • I have been told to use aquaphor, Vasoline, baby oil, and scrub with head and shoulders. My doctor told me to use all but baby oil.

  • DS has it just a little bit so I've been using baby oil. However, I asked his pedi at his 2 month check up today and she recommended using a little bit of Selsen blue (not sure if I spelled it right). She just said to make sure not to get it near their eyes.

  • With DD we used olive oil. Put it on about 15 minutes before bath...then brushed with a fine tooth comb and washed.

    This is what my pedi recommended as well.

  • Coconut oil!!
  • My SIL was told by her pedi to use Selson Blue. She said it cleared it up within a day. I'm not sure how old her DS was though. He may have been older than yours.

  • Ugh. Tried the Vaseline and now we have gunk in what little hair he has left on the top of his head from newborn balding. Did just baby soap work for your LOs? We can't use selsen. He has bad allergies and has reactions to most baby soaps.
