Both of my children had Cradle Cap in their first few months, it’s harmless but if left untreated can hang around for a long time. I’m pretty sure I left my son’s to resolve itself but our daughter had it a bit worse so was keen to get it treated for her. There are cradle cap treatments available to buy online but I found the following, chemical free method worked wonders:
I gently rubbed in some coconut oil I had in the cupboard for cooking and left overnight.
The following morning I used a soft bristle brush to gently remove any loose flakes.
In the evening I washed her hair with baby shampoo and then reapplied coconut oil before bed.
I can’t believe that after 3 days of this routine it was pretty much all gone! Here are the before and after pics:
