Anyone got it? What are you doing with it - if anything at this point?

Jericho's is getting a lot better, but he still deals with it a little... pedi told us to put baby oil on his head 1/2 an hour before he takes a bath then wash it out and brush his hair.... while his head is still wet I'll gently run my nails through it to get the scalies out too

I was going to ask about cradle cap too! (or cradle crap as it's known in our house, I hate it so much). I've tried baby oil in the past and it never worked. Is there anything else that I could try?

Tea tree oil.

Canaan has it, ughhh. He has a lot of hair too, well did. It has fallen out some on the sides, but the cradle cap is gone there now. Its gotten a lot better since we started using the TT oil.

Beauden had it real bad and all his hair fell out with it it hasn't shown up on his head since then. But he still has it in his eye brows.....which oddly enough have not fallen out. We use a soft scrub brush to get the scales off during the bath

I do the gentle fingernail scrape in the tub, too, but never have had luck with baby oil. Eric and Danny both had it so long and so bad that, as toddlers, I finally was able to kick it by using Seltzen Blue on it! But there's no way I'd use it in a baby, and I'm really hoping to get rid of andrew's long before then. I'll have to try tt oil!

I got rid of Mia's with baby oil and her hair brush. I just dropped a little bit of oil on her head and then brushed in circles to remove the flaky skin. She loved it and grinned the whole time! I just took a towel to remove the oil and her head looked great! A few more times after several days I had to touch up a couple of small areas but now it's totally gone!
