slather it with warm baby oil, let it sit, and then comb it out with a fine tooth comb....that's what worked for me! good luck

nothing worked for my baby either until i used olive oil! rub it in the hair and leave it for about 5 minutes then shampoo as normal! after i did that two times it was all gone!

rub some baby oil through the hair, then comb it, and leave it over night, then rinse it with just water and not shampoo. it may be the type of shampoo that u use on your childs hair. just continue the baby oil thing over a couple of nights and see how you go. if u comb the hair after u put the baby oil in, that helps loosen the "cradle crap" as i like to call it. and makes it easier to get out. hope it helps.

well, my daughter's doctor said to use selsun blue (or similar shampoos) once a week when she had cradle cap. worked wonderfully!

Have you asked her doctor? All the other ladies are right; baby oil, combing, and super mild shampoo.

i found that after i gave my daughter a bath and washed her hair i used a comb and lightly ran it over her scalp and it all came out after 2 days.

Soft bristled brush and some patience and massaging the scalp softly with finger tips as many times a day as you can or inclined, alternate shampoo one night but not the next night.
