Craddle Cap ???????

I have a four month old that has a huge spot on her head of craddle cap. She has only had here and there spots befor. I thought to use a shampoo that says its just for that but for some reason I cant find it in stores again. Is there anything else I can do and is there anything to prevent it? I would even love some home remedies.

  • What I did when my daughter had craddle cap was get some baby oil and put it in her hair, then take a comb threw it. It mostly all camme out and never really came back, I had to do it twice and thats it. I hope it works for you, and good luck.

  • Baby oil and a soft toothbrush. Put the baby oil on and let it sit for a few mins and then take the soft toothbrush and GENTLY scrub. It came off after a couple baths.
