Max and I did some experimenting the other day… I read that olive oil could help get rid of cradle cap. Max doesn’t have it too bad, but every now and then it gets bad enough that it bothers me. I figured that olive oil couldn’t hurt my little man, so I got a bath all ready, undressed him, and set him up on his changing table (his favorite place.) I poured some oil on to a wash cloth and began rubbing it on his head. He LOVED it! It was like a little massage for him. I should have turned on some calming music and lit candles…

After the oil got a chance to soak in , we moved to the prepared tub. Because Max smelled like an italian eatery, we shampooed twice!

The end result was amazing! After we brushed his head with a soft bristled brush, there was no sign of cradle cap!
