dont worry..I used abit of olive oil on my sons head left it for about 20min and then used a baby brush to gently loosen the scales and brush them off.

For my kids I used a soft bristled baby brush when I wash their hair. Just put the shampoo right on the brush and gently rub it in a circular motion right on the scalp.

My son is 16 weeks and my hubby uses a baby comb and basically scrapes it off! Sounds gross and it is but lil bambino laughs his silly head off every time and its only been a couple days and its almost gone :) then we just wash his hair really well Johnson's baby bedtime shampoo (bedtime bath obviously lol) and no more flakes! :D

Do not worry it is very common in young infants. I agree with what Gena has said. It works miracles. Good luck to you.
