Anyone remember what shampoo works best for cradle cap?

the only thing that ever helped ellie was apricot oil (and you don't need a lot, so maybe just buy one of those little burts bees travel packs). i would just massage it in very gently, let it sit, rub with a baby wash cloth, then comb and pick until i got the big chunks. gross, i know, but it helped.

maybe try olive oil before you go buy something?

I agree with the Burt's Bees. I followed up with the shampoo bar.

I couldn't find a travel pack so I just bought the full size apricot oil. Thanks for the info. It really worked better than what I was doing!!

California Baby did wonders for us and cradle cap. Astrid had cradle cap really bad until we started using this stuff when she was like 3-4 months old :) We haven't used anything other than CB since then!

Do you mean the CB shampoo or the CB cream? The cream specifically mentions cradle cap but the shampoo I found does not.

How long did it take to get rid of the cradle cap?

Yes, the shampoo is what I meant! I actually got the idea from one of the Mama's here way back when our toddlers were young babies :)

Honestly, it's been so long ago, I don't remember. I'm thinking a few weeks at most though. It's incredibly moisturizing!

You can find stuff at hair salons for kids too. I think the last time we went to Kid to Kid they tried to get me to buy some tear free shampoo of theirs that worked on cradle cap. I bet it would work pretty well, although it'll cost a pretty penny coming from a salon.

(I passed it up though because I'm cheap so I can't tell you how well it works.)
