    Olive oil worked for us to help get rid if it but it kept coming back I was using a Johnson's shampoo on her at the time. I changed to mustella foam shampoo for newborns and it has now stayed away. The bottle says to leave it on for 2 mins for cradle cap so I put her in the bath wet her hair and wash with shampoo then leave the shampoo foam on while we wash everywhere else and rinse when she's ready to get out of the bath. Can be hard to find though. In my area only terry white chemists stock it and 1 baby shop.

    I meant to also add... avoid soaps and shampoos that contain sulphates (Johnson's is sulphate based) as sulphates are skin irritants and no good for cradle cap.

    I've been told Sunsilk anti-dandruff shampoo.
    I haven't needed to use it ... But apparently it works wonders .... Although I am not sure what is in it and how you feel about using it on baby ... I assume you'd have to be super careful not to get any near their face / eyes ....

    I use olive oil, let it sit for about 10 mins, then wash off with Gaia baby shampoo in the bath. I use a flannel and scrub hard! I like to scrape the flakes loose with my fingernail while I'm nursing him (gross, I know), then brush them out with an old toothbrush. Luckily his isn't too bad and just seems to flare up every now and then.

    Someone told me if you dry their head really vigorously after bathtime it helps too. My baby has a lot of thick, dark, hair (has since birth) so I'm not sure if that makes them more prone to cradle cap since the oils sort of get trapped in the scalp?

    At our last feed last night, I rubbed almond oil in. It all absorbed really fast, so I put paw paw ointment over the top.

    Today it does look better, but definitely still there. I'm going to bath her this evening then I'll try the bi carb. I really want it gone.

    Thanks again for the replies, will let you know what works.

    I know athlete's foot cream isn't natural. But it worked so fast, so if you get desperate, give it a go
