Does your baby have cradle cap? Poor little Jacob has lost his hair right on top of his head and it is so dry. Are you suppose to put lotion on it? I can't remember what we did with Jackson. I do remember Jackson's getting better really quickly so I'm hoping that Jacob's will also.

Thank you *Kiliki* for my beautiful siggy

JR has it but not very bad- I just wipe it off with a warm washcloth a couple of times a day. Allison had it really bad and I would use baby oil on her head and a baby comb to comb her hair to get it out. It lasted for quite a while, should have figured she was going to get my weird skin!

Thanks to Claire1979 for the terrific siggy!

Abby has it, but it's not nearly as bad as Aidan's was. Aidan's pediatrician told us we could wash his hair with head and shoulders to alleviate it, and we did (we were just super careful about not getting it in his face). It cleared up right away, so if Abby ever gets it bad I'll just use head and shoulders on her like I did with Aidan.

i always did a little bit of baby oil in the bathtub on their scalp, then use their baby brush in circular motions to break it up on the top, then use a fine tooth baby comb to help comb it out. It usually cleared up in a few days doing this.

Cole doesn't have it but Chase did until about age 2.5 :0!!!! We tried everything and finally a kids hair salon lady gave us a special cradle cap shampoo and it worked after regularly using it for a few weeks.

Thanks so much *Kiliki* for my awesome summer siggie!

I wash Hadley's hair with the little brush/sponge thing from the hospital. I rub it in circular motions and I do it every other day to keep her scalp free from flakes. It worked with DS. He never had cradle cap.
