Olive oil. Massage it in and leave it on overnight.

Little innocents make a massage oil that's great for cradle cap, and smells lovely.

My Bub never got it bad , just slightly, I gave his scalp a 'scrub' with the soft baby brushes they sell for normal hair brushing, but in the bath when shampooing him. Then baby lotion on head after bath.

DS2 got cradle cap really bad, I frequently used olive oil overnight and then the next morning used a baby brush to get it off.
Made the mistake of using coconut oil once... *vomit*. It stank so bad, like literally vomit once I rubbed it in. Not sure why!

I'm a fan of coconut oil, I think it has anti fungal properties too. That's funny, I think olive oil smells worse than coconut oil!
Whichever you try, massage it in, let it soak for awhile, use a soft bristled brush to lift the scales, then wash out with a cloth and warm water.
For the ears, massage it and use a cloth.

i'm pretty sure i made up a paste with bi carb soda and put that on, let it dry and then the cradle cap flaked off with the dried bi carb.
