Anyone's baby have this right now? Do you leave it be or do you do anything about it?

DS did for a few months and I think Aniela is getting it now too, her scalp is dry and flaky. Gross!

Davids whole head started peeling a few weeks ago, what I do is use a warm
wet wash cloth every night and then put on bb lotion and brush it around, this
was how I GOT THE LIL MOHAWK MAN.. LOL But it has seemed to work..
Hope it helps

Yes, Mason hah the flaky scalp last week...I gave him a bath and then put CJs butter (you can also use lotion or baby oil) on his head and brushed it well, then put some more CJs on for the night with a cap on top. In the morning I repeated the brushing and a bath and now he is cradle cap free! Still has some baby acne though....

I think Brooklyn will get it. My first dd got it really bad. I'd get rid of it and it just came back again and again. My second dd didn't have a problem with it at all.

I thought Clayton wouldn't get it but I jinxed myself because the other day when we gave him bath it showed up real bad! It drives me crazy because I just want to peel the dry skin off. I have not used anything on it but most definitely will when we bath him again.

Mia has a really mild case of it. Should I be doing something to get it out or will it remedy on its own? Our pedi didnt seem concerned.

DS had terrible cradle cap. I used a little dandruff shampoo on it and it worked wonders. You have to be very, very careful though because it's very irritating to the eyes.

Rachel doesn't have it yet, but if she does I ditto the other ladies about baby oil. I used it for DD1, left it on for 15mins, combed it out and didn't ever have a problem with it coming back.

Nara had a light case of it and the pedi said to put baby oil or lotion on it and then take a soft brush and brush it out. I did the the oil and it went right away and hasn't been an issue since.
