Baby: The Tool Every New Mom Needs For Cradle Cap
If there are not enough things to stress a new mom out, one of them could be the dreaded “cradle cap.” At first, I thought we had escaped the dreaded cradle cap but, to my surprise, Baby E had it.
I remember the day I noticed it. We were at the doctor for a weight check appointment and I looked down at her and noticed the flaky layers of skin on her scalp. While talking to her pediatrician I asked him what I was looking at, indeed, cradle cap? He responded…
I would be lying if I said that I wasn’t freaking out a little bit. For those of you who are unsure as to what cradle cap actually is, here is the definition.
It presents as dry flaky skin on the baby’s head. Some may say it favors dandruff. Cradle cap Is common and is harmless to the baby. It usually shows up around 2 weeks and can last up to 12 months. Today I wanted to share a tool that I found that has helped tremendously with Baby E’s cradle cap.
One thing about it, it is a tool that I use when I give Baby E a bath. A baby’s skin is sensitive, so I never want to scrape or pick at the flaky skin on her scalp. Instead, I try to remove a little bit at a time with the Safety 1st Cradle Cap brush.
I stumbled on the brush while shopping for breastmilk storage bags, and I knew it was something I had to try. Baby E loves it too! Here are a few features that I love about the brush the most.

When my sister came to town, I decided to film a quick video on How To Use Cradle Cap Brush For Newborns. This gives you a quick idea of what this brush is like in action. Remember, it will take a few washes before the cradle cap is gone. Don’t give up and remember is just a part of the process.
Have you experienced cradle cap with your little one? What has worked for you?
