Cradle cap is crusty dry patches on a childs head, and can even form around their eye brows. My second son, who is just 5 weeks hasn't got it bad, but after a wash he has dry patches through his head- it doesn't hurt to pick them off and get rid off them, well he doesn't complain when i do, and they clear up- i rubbed QV lotion on his head after, and then rinsed with fresh water, just to take the grease out of his hair. A friend mentined to me the other day that oat meal is a very good healing agent and there are products you can get with oatmeal in them to put in the bath to heal the cradle cap, havn't tried them or looked into getting any, but if my son gets it bad i'll chck for some, and let you know wether they work:)

Hope i've helped

Hi Akeira-Lea - my eldest daughter Arianna got cradle cap really badly! Even now I am still removing small patches that has been covered by hair. Apparently children who have lots of hair when they are born don't get it as bad! Arianna was a real baldy and even after we removed it all first time around it came back again! The best thing to use is Olive Oil - it isn't good for there hair when they do have it as it looks really greasy - but I used to rub it on after their night bath and let them sleep on it and rub it off in the morning - came off really easily! So far our latest addition Reagan hasn't had any - but she also has a full crop of hair! So fingers crossed she doesn't! lol

I found that using the J&J baby shampoo kept it away. When I got slack and didn't wash his hair with it for a few days he started to get cradle cap.
