spa treatment anyone?





We are trying to do what we can to get rid of a really bad case of cradle cap. This poor babe has had it since he was weeks old. Recently, he has started to itch at it- which makes me feel terrible when he wakes up in the morning with a bloody scalp. So we have tried some special spa treatments at our house. First, olive oil. Next avacado. Last try, a special healing clay from Jess. Nothing has worked so far, at least not more than a few days! Any great suggestions for us?

Oh no, poor baby! Mia had cradle cap - we put baby oil on her head often. Yes, she was oily, but it worked!

Oh that sounds awful for him! I don't think Carter ever had cradle cap per se but his head was insanely flakey one winter and I used California Baby Tea Tree Oil and Lavender Shampoo (you can usually find it at Target). It seemed to make it disappear within a week. And you might find the CA baby better for him since it is free of common allergens and he's a little sensitive!
