You & Your Baby, The Early Weeks –


Part 4 Cradle Cap


CRADLE CAP usually occurs in the first three months. The effected areas are around the ears, hair line and eye brows.

There are many shampoos available over the counter but depending on the age of your baby you may wish to try rubbing some olive oil on your baby’s scalp then leave for around 20 minutes before washing off thoroughly to avoid making the cradle cap worse. Before using the olive oil use a baby brush to remove any loose scales and resist the temptation to pick!
