My 6 week old has cradle cap on her scalp and eyebrows! How do I get rid of this?

Use baby oil, or even mineral oil (which is unscented). Rub it in all over the scalp and massage it for a bit, use a fine toothed comb and lightly scrape it off, then shampoo baby's head well. Use a cotton swab for the eyebrows, and you can probably use your fingernail to gently scrape the cradle cap from the eyebrows. Using a soft bristle brush every day, even if your baby is bald will help prevent it from building back up.
