Oh I should say what can I eat to get this yucky stuff off of him. I just heard on Good Morning American Green tea will heal the fast reproduction of cells. I jsut made some I will bathe him in it tomorrow morning. Any other remedies for massive cradle cap.

If you're B-feeding, squirt milk on it numerous times a day...also works for eye infections & diaper rash! Breast milk is incredible!

this well known remedy worked great for my daughter's cradle cap:
apply raw unfiltered apple cider vinegar to the scalp with a cotton ball. allow to sit for 10 minutes. then use a (new) soft toothbrush gently massage olive oil into the scalp in little circles, loosening up as much of the dead skin as possible. rinse with warm water.
a few nights of this treatment, and it will be GONE.

One of my kids had this pretty badly. I massaged olive oil into her head and then let her sit in the bath for awhile. After it was nice and warm in the bathroom I took a brush that was like a nail brush and scrubbed in circles. It came off pretty well but I had to do it about three different times because I didn't want her head to get too red. :D She didn't mind though.

My baby is cradle cap free. I did the green tea soaked a bag for ten minutes, the apple cider soak ten minutes, apricot oil soak in tube a feW mintues / It all melted away.
Yeah I DID NOT WANT TO HAVE TO EAT THE OUT OF CONTROL CELLS OFF HIS HEAD MYSELF,,,,YUCKIIIEEEE
THANKS EVERY ONE AGAIN:p
cradle cap doesn't bother the baby and isn't harmful except in some very extreme cases so why bother baby's skin scrubbing it off without need? perhaps it's there for a reason, like to protect the delicate scalp (from sun, etc.).

Virgin coconut oil. Eat a few spoons of it a day, rub it on your baby's head. Also, get your omega-3's.

extra virgin coconut oil works like a charm. This cured my 6 months old head in 2 weeks. I massaged it in every night and washed her hair weekly with aveeno
Also refrain from using shampoo or baby wash on baby's scalp. I only used olive oil soap on ds' head, when I had to use soap at all, and his cradle cap was very, very mild and went away quickly. Since then I usually don't even wet his hair.

I just wondered if you might have any suggestions. A friend of mine's young chihuahua (spelling?) has parvo and the vet wanted to charge her 600$ to treat it. She couldn't afford that and went home with an IV bag and rehydrating solution which after the diagnoses cost a total of 100$. I gave her a few pointers on how I saved some puppies once but it's been SEVERAL
