Hi all was just looking for a bit of advice my little boy is 2 month old has as you can tell by my profile pic he has barely any hair lol but has bits of cradle cap on the front of his head not loads but enough to be noticeable, i bath him with baby bath and wash his head with it too (no point shampooing..... is there?)
anything you can suggest to help get rid ??
thanks in advance x

I found the dentinox cream to be useless! The cradle cap shampoo worked ok but was terrible when it got in LO's eyes, the best thing I found was putting some baby oil on a cotton wool ball and rubbing it into your babies head and then gently peeling it away
My LO had awful, thick stubborn cradle cap. I tried baby oil a couple of hours before her bath. It did ger lots of flakes out but in the end I bought Dentinox shampoo & it finally did the trick now she's 8 months old it still keeps trying to come back but Dentinox is keeping it at bay. I don't want her hair coming out again!
I'd recommend the dentinox shampoo. Also try massaging in some cooking oil with some cotton wool before a bath, you should be able to gently peel the worst away. The dentinox should eventually take care of the rest!
My LO had real bad cradle cap, the health visitor told me to use some cradle cap shampoo so I went straight to boots and bought dentinox cradle cap shampoo and my god it helped instantly, he scalp looks soo much healthier, I'd advise the use of that shampoo
Also rubbing in some olive oil x
