I've heard olive oil isn't good because it's a protein and feeds the yeast that causes cradle cap. Emily used to get it pretty bad and I bought a Little Remedies lotion for it that you rub on, comb and loosen the scales and shampoo. I've also used mineral oil and that worked just as well. I was using J&J shampoo for a while but I heard that can contribute to cradle cap so I switched to an organic baby shampoo. I think it's Aveeno. You can also mix in a little bit of dandruff shampoo. She's been flake free for about a month now.
