    Default Cradle cap remedies?

    What are your tried and tested cradle cap remedies?



    DS has had it for over a month now, and I want to get rid of it!

    apply a paste of sodium bicarb, let it dry, then wash off, the cradle cap should lift off

    Sorbelene. Lather it on.. leave for an hour.. vigerously wash off with baby shampoo and vigerously towel dry and repeat if need to. Only needed to repeat once for DS.

    I put baby oil on H's head, leave it for a few hours, then while she resting in my arms, I VERY gently use a brush and in a circular motion with T's soft hair brush and work off the flakey bits. Also in the bath I leave a wet washer over her head to soften it some more then do the same thing with the brush. I have found it works really well.

    ego egozite cradle cap lotion,you can get it from chemist just on shelf,my DD had the worst alot of people said theyd seen,you have to leave it on if i remember for like 3 days so we did it while we on holiday as its greasy but it was the only thing that worked i think i used a baby comb to help with getting it off,i also tried the olive oil that helped also but this was the only thing that got it all off.

    QV Oil!! My DS had cradle cap when he was younger. We just washed his head with it at each bathtime and it was completely gone within a week.

    With DS, he had it for months.

    I shaved all his hair off with a razor at 9 months as it was over 3 inches long, and it tok his cradle cap with it. He is now 20 months and hasn't had it since.

    The only problem with using razors is that you have to be careful that you don't cut their scalps.
