  • My son had cradle cap until he was 10 poor kid it was bad. Mineral oil worked best for us. I put it on and let it stay for a day or so then washed it off did it twice a week or more as needed.. It didnt totally go away but helped better than anything else. Good luck!

  • There's some cradle cap ointment from Disney that works really well... you apply and then brush out the dry pieces with a fine tooth comb. good luck!

  • the best thing I found was this. after bath, coat his head in plain old vaseline, then gently rub it in with a brush, soon you will be able to just 'scrape" it off in layers, sounds gross but I SWEAR THATS HOW IT HAPPENED. MY BABY HAD IT TERRIBLYA ND AFTER A SHORT TIME DOING THE VASELINE, IT ALL PEELED UP AT ONCE. AND VASELINE IS CHEAP! shoot sorry to yell, and too lazy to redo it lol.
