    Cradle crap (cap? Whatever it's called)

    Advertisements
    I think T has it a little bit. I know it's harmless but is this something I should call his doctor about or does it go away on its own?

    It's harmless, just not pleasing to look at. Just scrub his head with soapy water Even some of our NICU babies get cradle cap

    Totally harmless- no need to Call the doc unless you aren't sure it's cradle cap. I comb my babies' out with olive oil when it gets bad.

    Harmless. Anabelle got some, and we just washed her hair with her normal shampoo and used the soft bristle hair brush to "scrub" in circular motions. Got rid of it 100% (but ti took some hair with it )

    Dd has it right now and it just won't go away no matter how much I scrub her head (I don't scrub hard obviously). I even bought special shampoo to wash her hair with and it didn't do squat.

    DH: Thank you. ME: For what, babe? DH: For being you.

    It's not bad at all just like a few little spots.

    Yeah, dd has it on the top of her head, but not really anywhere else. Still, it doesn't look like I bathe her at all, lol. I bathe her every 3 or 4 days.

    Harmless! Aubs has slowly been going away-- it's almost 100% gone now. I use the little cradle cap brush and some baby shampoo when we're in the bath and gentle scrub it. It used to be on part of her upper face too, but it's totally gone from there now.

    DD had it bad (and still gets it even though she's two..she has her dad to thank for that) We just wash her hair with normal baby shampoo (there is cradle cap stuff you can buy) and we took one of those soft baby tooth brushes that come in the kits and scrubbed her noggin...having a removable shower head helped too!
