Easy treatment for cradle cap

My baby had cradle cap. If yours has scaly scalp, it's cradle cap, all right.
When you googled cradle cap treatment, you'll find many hits. Some even said you can't do anything with it.

I went and asked our pediatrician about it.
She suggested me to rub baby oil liberally on the baby's scalp each night before sleeping. Leave it overnight.
The next day you can brush the scales away using the baby's hair comb. If you have no time, simply proceed to wash his hair. Repeat for a few days (2-3 days), and the cradle cap will disappear.
The doctor gave me Dentinox Cradle Cap Shampoo to wash the hair, but I found out that any baby shampoo would work magic.
Hope it helps.

Bonnie didn't have serious cradle cap prob. But I did the same anyway. :) Saw my sisters doing it.
