i have a cradle cap shampoo here...cant remember the name (ill go look later) but it has winnie the pooh on the bottle. i used it twice and that was it for my son, it cleared right up!
The baby oil and/or olive oil is used to moisturize the dead skin making it easier to brush away. This should help. You could work the oil into Riley's hair, brush, wash using a gentle head message, and rinse. That way the hair is clean and less oily.
They also have a cradle cap shampoo that you can get next to the regular baby shampoos. I can't remember the name of it, but it is specifically for cradle cap. But some of the above remedies may also work. The shampoo maybe a bit expensive. I think it's like 5 or 6 dollars but you won't have to buy anymore ever. The cradle cap shouldn't last too terribly long and a little bit of that shampoo goes a long way; especially on their little heads :)
yes, baby oil or anything else the ladies suggested. you leave it on for a few minutes to absorb and lightly brush with a baby brush. there is also a special cradle cap stuff made, you can buy it at walmart of target and it has winnie the pooh on the front and it is for cradle cap.
olive oil is great, natural and inexpensive...
Sounds like he does have it. Apricot oil gently rubbed into his scalp should work a treat.
Or even just regular baby oil. Try not to scrub too much or too hard as this may aggravate it. Good luck.
