  • Mustela makes a wonderful shampoo that will help. Babies R Us sells it. I use it every couple weeks (it's a little more pricey) and Aidin's scalp is so much better. It was one of the best bath gifts I received. I tried oil but it was too messy and never really cleared it up. GOOD LUCK

  • Have you tried tar shampoo?

  • Are you sure it's cradle cap and not exczema/psorraisis (sp?)??? I'd check with the pedi to be sure.

  • It is cradel cap.. the only problem with getting rid of it, is bc he hair is so thick and long.. We've done the baby oil and combing it out, we've done the lightly combing of it.. I just don't kno what else to do for it! As far as I know there's nothing on the market to help cradle cap?

  • I used head and shoulders and it went away for good. I know they say not to use that, but another mom told me and I was desperate so I did it and that was the end of cradle cap. Just be really careful not to get in her eyes (like you don't know that.)
