  • its cradle cap and its because of all the hormones they absorb in utero. Put baby oil on their head before they go to sleep and when they wake up in the morning the flakes should be loose enough to wash them out. It may take a few rinses because of the oil but it works like a charm

  • Cradle cap? Looks like ear wax.

    If its cradle cap they have tons of items for that

  • "sparklebug86" is right...I have been doing the oil treatments on my 4 month old and it works like a charm...and if your baby has lots of hair it will take a little longer (at least it is for me) but my 4 month old has "cool hair" because the oil acts like a "gel" somewhat and i can style it! ahhaha but use a baby comb to comb through it and it will pull all the dead skin--flakey skin out of their well! good luck...there are also baby shampoos for cradle cap...but the oil does work!
