Dry Scalp

His head is dry and flaky. I don't know if I should put lotion on it or anything to keep it from cracking. When we give him baths we use that brush thing they gave us at the hospital. looks like this

Is it something I should worry about?

  • Sounds like cradle cap - I used vaseline and combed it out -then washed his hair with regular baby shampoo the next night -
