Jaren never had it much.
Jonah had it more often. We treated his with a little baby oil right before bathtime on his scalp. Then we would take a rougher type brush and run it through his hair. A few times of doing that cleared it right up and I haven't seen it since.

Caden doesn't have it, but our doctor said if he gets it, we should wash his hair everyday. He said most people think the scalp is dry when babies get it, but that it's not. Not sure what causes it, but he recommended washing it daily.

Both of my boys had it, but my first born had it worse... I would use a soft bristle toothbrush and brush the shampoo on his scalp while in the bathtub, and then rub Vaseline on his head afterward, and cover it with a baby cap. Worked like a charm!

Millie did. We put some baby oil on her head and carefully brushed it away.

Rosie hasn't got it yet.
