Why any baby gets cradle cap is not clear and also who named it cradle cap.
The easiest way to understand that Scalp is also skin, albeit a different type of skin compared to other parts of the body.
Scalp skin can adjust to new life outside the baby’s safe womb and in the process it can end up greasy, patchy and yellow.
Cradle Cap is harmless.
It usually clears up on its own but you can improve.
Regular hair wash with any baby shampoo.
Put a thin layer of natural oil for skin like Olive Oil or Coconut Oil straight in to the scalp to losen the dry crust and nourish scalp skin.
If these have not helped, or it starts to grow to other parts of the body, if you notice swelling or fluid, definitely get in touch with us.
Take a photo of your baby’s affected issue or we can do a direct video call to your baby, whichever is easier for the littlen.
