My kids have not had it but I have had to treat it in other kids in the past . Put a bit of baby oil on babies scalp. Let it sit for a bit and then use a soft scrubby brush to loosen it all up and then wash with warm water and baby shampoo . To keep baby from getting it again use the soft scrubby brush and some soap on babies head and scalp every time you bath them .


While it's bothering that you see a cradle cap on your baby's scalp, it doesn't seem to bother them.

To cure the cradle cap, massage oil onto their head and leave it for 15 minutes to soften and then remove them with a soft baby brush.
