When is craddle cap supposed to end?

Usually clears up around 6 months. Make sure you brush your baby's hair, even if he or she is totally bald, a few times a day. Use a soft bristle brush and rub all over. that will help slough off the skin cells and other matter that makes up the cradle cap.
You don't need to shampoo everyday. If baby has patches of cradle cap, use baby oil and a fine tooth comb to gently scrape it off the head. Put the oil on first and let it sit to soften up the crusty bits and be very gentle with the comb.
