  • Do you mean cradle cap? Dry scalp, or deposits on baby's scalp. It's been almost 15 years since I had to deal with this, but we always used baby oil to losen it and brush it while baby was sleeping. I'm sure there are natural oils you can use to loosen it too.

  • How often do you wash your baby's hair. If you wash it too often, it could create dryness on the scalp. Try washing it less frequently and see if it helps.

  • We would buy scented baby oil, put it on baby's head, and then after about 15 minutes gently comb the dry parts out.
