Goodbye Baby Acne, Hello Cradle Cap

April 3, 2010
Baby acne has finally cleared up. I think all the breastmilk may have helped! However, it has been replaced by very dry skin and cradle cap. Cradle cap is like an extreme case of dandruff in babies. It is also caused by my hormones. It looks like she is shedding her scalp and replacing it with a new one. I'm glad she has hair to hide it. Google says to just brush it out with a soft bristle brush, so that is what I have been doing. I also read that breastmilk can help it as well, although I don't really have enough milk to rub into her scalp. I might try a little, though.
