Grease Monkey

Joseph has a wicked case of cradle cap in the middle of his noggin. We've been waiting it out for a long time, and I thought I got it all during nursing sessions, but I discovered this patch right on top of his head, where I never see it unless he's alseep in his sling. But EW. This isn't the dry skin of the past - it's gunked up oily flaky skin.

Being the primate that I am, I love to pick at it! Haha.

Should I be bathing him more than once a week to try to help with this? I hate giving him baths. Maybe I'll try to convince T.J. that that should be their "bonding" thing.

You should brush his hair as you wash it, and I would wash it more than once a week. You can also put olive oil on it, as gross as it sounds, or they have shampoo for cradle cap.

We were told to us olive oil on their heads for cradle cap in our Bradley class!

We used a soft bristle tooth brush on our son's head while we were shampooing (every three days). His cradle cap didn't last very long at all.
