    I've heard good reports of moo goo cradle cap cream. I've used it a few times with my ds2 but he doesn't really have it badly so can't really comment on its effectiveness. With ds1 I used a medicated shampoo but I remember it taking a longtime to go away.

    I did the olive oil but using a cradle cap comb. Gently try to get under as much of the flakes after gently rubbing the oil in. I started from the outside tho and worked in.

    I used coconut oil and left it in for 10 mins, then combed her hair with a little plastic nit comb. It worked wonders.

    I found the Moogoo Shampoo was enough to get rid of it and keep it away for the most part. If it's really bad start with the Moogoo scalp cream and then just use the Moogoo shampoo regularly after that

    Use qv bath oil in her hair for a couple of days, use a soft baby brush to brush the area after each bath or even while in the bath. After a few days it will start to clear up

    We used the qv for ds3 when he was little as he had it quite bad also. The qv is great for their skin too so washed him and his hair with it

    I battled severe cradle cap in dd2 for three years before I finally used coconut oil. I literally rubbed a couple of handfuls into her scalp and left it there. Finally got rid of it.

    I did also try paw paw ointment, but it didn't work.
