DS2 came home from the hospital with dry flaky skin on his head, shoulders and feet. The nursery nurse told us to put Aquaphor on him to help combat the dry skin, so we did. His feet and shoulders cleared up in about 2 weeks, but his head stayed dry and flaky. If I brush his hair, so much dry skin flakes off his scalp it looks like someone dusted him with coconut flakes.

Can babies be born with cradle cap? Or is this just dry skin? We bathe every two days and I've been using the Aquaphor. What else can I do?
