Baby skin needs extra care

 

Health Visitor's cradle cap tips

Baby skin is more delicate than ours. Try to limit the amount of products you use on their skin and never leave your baby out in the sun.

Cradle cap needs no specific treatment, although gently washing the baby’s hair and scalp may stop build-up of the scale. Use just a small amount of a pure, natural oil - such as vegetable oil - on your baby's scalp and leave it on at least 15 minutes before washing it off.

The above information cannot replace specialist treatment. If you are worried contact your GP.
