Cradle Cap

I'm not sure how many of you have battled cradle cap, but hopefully you can relate. When B was about a month old, I noticed that his head was flaky. C never had cradle cap, so I wasn't exactly sure of what to do. I did remember my friend, Lisa, saying that her little girl had cradle cap and she was picking up a cream from T@rget. So, we headed to T@rget. Any time I go to T@rget or W@l-mart for one specific item, they are always out. Such was the case on this day. I waited a couple of days and went back. Thankfully they had the cream and we started the process that night. The first time we used it, B's head smelled awful. I remember thinking that if it smelled that bad every time, we might just have to deal with the flakes. After a couple more uses, his little head smelled normal again. All of that to say, I think we have beat the cradle cap! I was snuggling B this morning and noticed that his scalp was nice and clear. This was a small thing to deal with, but I'm glad it's over. Sometimes cradle cap can get pretty nasty. So, I'm glad it's all cleared up!

Glad it went away so quickly! Addison's was much more difficult to get rid of. I also had cradle cap really bad when I was little; I even remember having it when I was a toddler. Yucky stuff!!
