Hi looking for thread that I saw not long ago on ways of getting rid of craddle cap! Anyone know where I can find it? If not does anyone know of the best ways of getting rid of it?

I don't know where the thread is, or how to search. However, Sophie had awful cradle cap. We first of all tried putting oil on her head before bead and then shampooing it off in the morning but that didn't get rid of it completely. I then tried the Dentinox cradle cap shampoo and it was gone within about 3 washes. I put oil on her head every day and it hasn't come back.
Hope that helps a bit.

i cant find it either but i posted on it,
my advice (to have it gone in 5minutes) is to put a small blob of Oilatum straight onto the scalp and massage it in, leave it for 1-2 minutes and then rinse off, i then used a nit comb or other fine toothed comb and it all came completely off! it was amazing and revealed a mass of blond curls that had been under layers of horrid cradle cap!!

we used detonix for a while but it nothing for us so we started using a bit of baby oil before shampooing and conditioner afterwards and it cleared it right up.

I know the one you mean, it was only a week or so ago but I can't find it either. However I started one myself back in March and got loads of replies:
I ended up using Dentinox every night for about two weeks. After a week or so the cap starting drying up and then I naughtily started picking the dry stuff off - once it was all gone it never came back. For a while afterwards we used dentinox about twice a week as a preventer but after a month or so we didn't bother anymore.
So dentinox def worked for us, I know a lot of people are down on it but I do recommend it - you just have to persevere for a couple of weeks before you see real results.

You could do a search on google - put in cradle cap baby expert and then click on more results from baby expert and it should bring up all the old posts.

hi everyone, new here but desperate for advice! My son is 1 month old on Tuesday and has been bottle feeding for the past 2 weeks. He has had problems since. He is extremely irritable, I’m sure my Son doesn’t have anytime while awake not crying, he cries ALL the time and I try EVERYTHING with no success. I have been to the hospital and doctors and they are so very unhelpful, they just tell me he has colic and basically I have to deal with it. I am almost certain, and the hospital also said, he has reflux (silent) as he rarely spits up but it is getting far worse and he is becoming more and more irritable, coughing after feeds and in between and starting to refuse feeds, scream, want them, take them and scream again. He has had Carobel from the hospital as they didn’t want to give Gaviscon due to chance of constipation, but it did absolutely nothing for him. He is now simply on infacol but has trouble pooing, which causes him distress, but is very runny. I guess i am I am desperately looking for advice on what to do, as it is increasingly hard with a baby that cries all day and won’t sleep or settle due to milk coming back up. I feel like I’m missing something and not giving him what he needs? HE IS SUCH A HUNGRY BABY! I feed him, change his nappy, cuddle him, sing to him, wind him, put him in swinger, walk round house, car - I am lost! Health visitor has done a referral to dietician however who knows how long this will take! Dad is lactose intolerant. Also, how much does your baby eat, or did eat at 1 month? Mine wants food every 1.5/2 hours! Please help!
