I have a 9 week old son and he has a bad case of cradle cap. As all of you know, I LOVE DIY home remedies. I have found a couple of things that will work for you if you have this issue with your newest addition.
Breastmilk- This is a wonder cure that works on so many things. For cradle cap you express some milk, massage it into the scalp, comb through and wash away in the bath.
Coconut oil- Is a necessity to have in every home. It works for your (adults) insides as well as being a great moisturizer. For babies, massage into scalp, comb through and wash in the bath
Olive oil- Is also a great necessity to have in your home- Massage into scalp,comb through and wash in the bath
Shea butter-This is a great product that is essential to my household. You can use it for massages, moisturizing, healing cuts , sunburn ,eczema, psoriasis, cradle cap and so much more !!
Tea tree oil- Tea tree oil is a strong antiseptic and anti-fungal. I wouldn’t use it alone on a babies scalp but would add it to Shea butter (along with lavender for a calming scent) it works wonders !!
