DD2 has eczema, allergies and HAD cradle cap. Her cradle cap has been gone for some time now (many months) and I'm starting to see it reappear.

We still mostly nurse, I've just started introducing solids as she has just started gaining an interest in them. I'm wondering if any of these factors have anything to do with it. What gives??

bump :)


I'm sorry I don't have an answer to your questions.  I will just say that I just noticed a month ago that my daughter (2 yrs) and son (3 yrs) had "cradle cap" on the tops of their heads.  I doused it with olive oil and gently rubbed and combed it off.  It hasn't come back yet.  Neither of them have eczema, allergies, etc.  My thought was that maybe it was their scalps' reactions to being out in the sun all summer?


Good luck!
