I've been brushing her hair as instructed but this morning i noticed a patch of flaky dry looking skin that I'm assuming is cradle cap. I worked at it with a brush for awhile but couldn't get it to go completely away. How do i stop it from getting worse and how do i get rid of what she already has?
As weird as this sounds, I read about somewhere and gave it a try on my third baby, who had pretty nasty cradle cap - making a baking soda paste (water and baking soda to a paste consistency) and put it on the affected areas and let it sit a couple minutes. Then gently rinse it out and wash the hair gently. It did wonders for my son - I think I repeated it maybe three or four times over a couple weeks.
