Want an All-Natural Remedy for Baby Cradle Cap Besides a Hat? Look in Your Pantry! by Cheryl Leahy

Many newborns get cradle cap, that unsightly, flaky skin in the scalp (my daughter included). There's an easy and all-natural way to get rid of it as opposed to harsh shampoos: olive oil! How?

  • Pour some olive oil on your little one's scalp, using enough to fully saturate. 
  • Let the oil soak in for a while, at least 30 minutes. This will loosen and soften the flakes. T
  • Take a stiffer bristled baby brush and brush the flakes out! 

The olive oil moisturizes, and won't harm the baby if it accidentally gets in their mouth. Baby's first hair treatment is a success!
