Our baby daughter Sophie had cradle cap for quite a while after she was born. At the time it felt like she had it forever, but in hindsight it was quite a short time really. But nevertheless it was something that I wasn’t quite sure how to deal with it and – most importantly – how to ‘cure’ it. Until my GP said in passing that using a lice comb had helped with the cradle cap of her kids. After that it was just a matter of time for the cradle cap to disappear.
Every evening after the bath we put some olive oil onto Sophie’s scalp and let it sink in for a little while. Then we’d take our lice comb and carefully comb off the looser skin flakes. With time there was less and less build-up and it eventually stopped to re-appear at all. If just everything was as easily dealt with as this. 🙂
What has worked for you to deal with cradle cap? Have you tried the olive oil & lice comb combo? How did you get on?
