Dry baby scalp

My 1 month old daughter has been having white flakes like dandruff coming off of her scalp when I brush her hair.... Idk if is it cradle cap because there are t any brown or yellow patches, or patched at all. It looks like of you or me were to get dandruff???

    Aveeno baby wash and shampoo work well for us and Selena hasn't had dry scalp since. Also try using the brush on her hair in the tub to exfoliate the excess skin, make small circles and then shampoo and rinse.

      Get a fragrance free lotion. Or put a little coconut oil on, rub it in at least 5 minutes before her bath then wash like normal. Take a fine tooth comb and lightly comb through every direction. It will come off and this way won't hurt her. :)

      oh lol. Yes, olive oil would work. So would baby oil. I'm so used to my crunchy mama groups I forget to switch modes on here, sorry.

        Sounds like cradle cap to me too. It isn't always yellow or brown, it can be white flakes, especially at the onset.
