I know this is an older thread, but....

I have a 3.5 month old. He has less hair then DS did at this age and hid cradle cap is most noticable outside in the daylight/sunlight. It is an orange-ish color.
LoveChild - your response was like a light bulb for me. I take a BF multivitamin that has the Omega's in it. But in the past week I have started adding a minimum of 2 tbl of Flax seed to my daily routine. Flax seed/oil is an awesome source for the Omega's.
Anywho... I have noticed over the past few days, that his cradle cap has slowly started flaking off on it's own. I have been wondering about this and why it was happening (thus my search and finding this thread). He doesn't have any other dry skin issues. Finding your post was certainly an "Ah Ha" moment. The Omega's must be speeding up the cellular process!
Too, I have been using Ojon oil a couple of times a week on his scalp. This is helpful. It is natural and smells yummy (you cand get it at Nordstrom and I believe one or two other places). It is pricey but the tiniest bit goes a long way. I really think it is also helping to decrease my post-pregnancy hair loss. The people at Ojon have said that it can accelerate hair growth - We'll see if it helps my lil' guy in that area too
