Hi there~ I am new and glad to be here! I have a 4 month old who had a really stubborn case of cradle cap. I did a few things to help it, although I'm not really sure if any one thing or combination of things did the trick, or if it finally just ran its course.
1. Brush DC hair daily.
2. We used olive oil on the scalp, let it sit for 15 mins., brushed it w/ a very soft bristle toothbrush (it came in the babycare kit), and shampooed out thoroughly. You have to make sure you're rinsing out all of the oil or else the pores will become even more clogged.
3. Cut dairy out of your diet if you are BF (a doc suggested this... I did it, but am not sure if it actually worked... )
4. I used California Baby tea tree oil and lavendar shampoo/body wash every other day... it's a bit drying but I think it really helped clear things up.
Cradle cap is no fun... hope it goes away soon!
