my HV told me to put olive oil on my daughters head over night to soften it and then wash it in the morning and it should come off.
hence, i never did and left it and its clearing up slowly.

daughters 1 an 2 had it and i didn't fancy the olive oil thing and the shampoo smells baaad i just left it and gently brushed their hair after washing it and bits came away some times. the rest just semmed to clear up by its self, daughter 3 hasn't had any so far! but she has way less hair than the other 2 did!


Keep on Truckin'
I was told the olive oil thing too and I gave it much thought and by the time I had done thinking the cradle cap had all gone! The only conclusion I can draw from this is thinking clears cradle cap - particularly slow deliberated thinking! So have a ponder! :D :p

I didn't like the olive oil either so just had some shampoo. Definitely don't pick it off though (tempting though it is!) It soon goes.
