Dylan is 12 weeks and has alot of hair. I have just noticed he has a lot of cradle cap. Anyone got any tips on how to get rid of it?xxxx

olive/sunflower oil, works wonders!!! just massage a little bit in and then when he has his bath just rinse it out, only had to use it a couple of times with ds and it never came back xx

I used every shampoo going for cradle cap on my twins 4 years ago but nothing worked. I then used olive oil which I rubbed on to their heads and left it for half an hour before washing it off. After a few times it completley went and never came back.

my son had it terribly at about 10 weeks old, i also used olive oil, massages it in and left it on over night, it did take a while to get rid of completely but it loosened the cradel cap a bit at a time, and also massaging in vaseline worked really well for the very stubborn bits.

I used Olive Oil when Kara was smaller and left it on overnight. It worked great and I was able to remove it easie the next day. It did take a few times though before it worked.

Yup, definately olive oil, leave it to soften and then comb it through with a fine tooth comb.

Hi - I'll be the odd one out and say that Dentinox worked for us. We used it every night for about two weeks - took a while to see a difference but then it started drying up and flaking off (with a bit of help from me, naughty mummy!). Once it was gone it never came back.

Trying to conceive with PCOS.
Hi, I hope I’m posting this in the right place. I’m new to this so bare with me 🙈. Background - I was diagnosed with PCOS a little over a year ago and have been trying to conceive for just over 2 years. I have been to fertility appointments who haven’t found any additional problems (e.g. hcg scan came back clear) and my partners tests were all ok. I understand weight is a big factor with PCOS and I have lost 10% of my body weight as recommended and keep trying to loose more. The more time goes on the more deflated and useless I feel. Each time I get excited thinking it might be my time then I get a false test 🤦♀️ The fertility appointments are far apart and the months in between each one just seem longer and longer. I was was wondering if anyone had been through similar experiences and have any advice? I have also read online that ovulation sticks don’t always work for women with PCOS. Anyone have any advice on this? Thank you for taking the time to read this. x
