I have never used this on a infant.... but for my dry skin I use almond oil.  It is very moisturizing for the skin and soaks in fairly quickly and does not leave a greasy feel to the skin like baby oil.....I would imagine it would also be great for cradle cap on a baby as it is a natural product. You can find almond oil at most health food stores.

If none of the above works, you might try T-Gel.  That worked for both me and my daughter.

Kazmira, cradle cap is a dermatitis on the scalp.  It's a bit similar to dandruff.
