Our daughter, like the majority of infants, has a bit of cradle cap. Being the techno-savvy mom that I am, I looked up some remedies on all the baby sites. When the regular shampoo and brush off the flakes method didn’t work too well, I decided to try another- rub vaseline on your baby’s scalp to soften the flakes, then shampoo and brush as usual.
Apparently I used too much vaseline. It. Would. Not. Wash. Out.
I found ANOTHER remedy- dust her head with a little cornstarch and the wash with baby shampoo and a pinch of baking soda. That sort of worked. I ended up blotting her hair with tissues while nursing for the rest of the night.
I feel I am making it up to her with the Cabled Baby Coat with Hood, from Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino. I cast on yesterday for the 6-9 month size and from what I’ve read, most kids can wear it for a long time due to the style of the coat.
