Calling on all Moms - need your help again. Jane has suddenly gotten a little bit of a dry scalp - a.k.a. cradle cap. Jane's scalp gets quite oily within a day of washing her hair and apparently that's what causes cradle cap, excess oil production which seems insane that excess oil causes dry skin!
My girlfriend, Kristie, recommended baby oil on her scalp, which I'm sure will work but kinda sucks as I don't want to ruin all her clothes, my clothes, bedding, and furniture with grease stains. I know when she was first born and had a little dry skin on her feet, the baby oil cleared it up within a few days. Will it do the same with her scalp or will I have to apply baby oil every day forever? If you click the link above it says to do baby oil before the bath and then wash it out, does this work? Found another website that says washing baby's hair more frequently will help get rid of the oil but, obviously, won't affect oil production. Also, is it best to brush the flakes out or leave them as is? HELP! ha ha ha.
If anybody has any tips-n-tricks for dealing with cradle cap, please leave a comment! :)
Thanks as always,
PS - Had to attach a pic of her in her hat today as I thought it might help the baby oil absorb better. Too cute. Oh, and that smiley pic is just too cute to keep to myself ;) ha ha ha.
