A simple cure for cradle cap.

I found none of the special shampoos were working for us.

Finally what worked was his Triple Paste diaper ointment.

So now his diaper ointment does triple duty!

It works for his diaper rashes, my dry skin, and cradle cap.

Thanks to Paige for this Frugal Baby Tip!

    i use a soft toothbrush and baby oil.
    put decent amount of oil on babys head, wait a few minutes for it to absorb and make the cradle cap moist. rub soft toothbrush gently on babys head in circular motion. wipe with a wet cloth and re apply oil if needed.

    worked great for us.

    I used a scalp massager and baby shampoo once and to my surprise it was gone and hasn't returned!
