    My little one is 3 months old today & has cradle cap (really dry skin) on her head. Any tips for removing it or do I just leave it??

    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.

    Mine got this too - I got a shampoo, Dentinox & used to comb her hair in the bath to remove it all before washing it off :)

    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 did the olive oil thing, but didn't like my bubba looking greasy, so I moved to the shampoo, and brushed it gently with baby brush. Once their hair really grows, you don't tend to see it.

    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.
