  • Baby oil and a comb. There is also a cradle cap remover kit from Gerber that my cousin used on her sons that worked well.

  • Rub baby oil on the scalp. It will help loosen it up. Then gently wash your baby's hair.

  • My twins had it really bad. The Dr. had me rub baby oil into their scalps, which moisturizes them & comb it out of thier hair with a very fine toothed comb. Kinda like a nit comb, actually. Worked wonders!

  • Baby oil and then rub it with a toothbrush, wash cloth or comb to get it out.

  • Pure Olive Oil and a toothbrush :)

  • Whoa, not baby oil. olive oil or coconut oil. Let it sit, then use a baby brush to massage the scalp.

    Baby oil is mineral oil and not a "healthy" natural thing.
