Cradle Cap Remedies

April 24, 2009

baby sleepingInstead of using baby oil on your baby's head for cradle cap, try using virgin organic coconut oil instead. As a natural product, coconut oil is much better for the skin than the chemical-laden lotions and oils most people slather on their children. If you don't care for the light coconut scent, just plain organic coconut oil may be used. You can find coconut oil in the health food store and some grocery stores.

My son had cradle cap until the day before his first birthday. The doctor kept telling me it would go away on its own. Well, I had had it by the time he was almost one so I found this home remedy.

Waxelene is a petroleum-free vaseline alternative. I used it with both of my kids for diaper rash and other skin problems. Recently, I used it on my daughter to help with her cradle cap and the cradle cap completely cleared up!

Olive oil is also great for the skin and helps with cradle cap. Simply massage a small amount of oil into the baby's scalp. Do this a couple times a day. I hope this helps.
