What comes to mind when you hear the word newborn? For me thoughts of that sweet baby smell and soft, rosy skin. But there is a condition that babies often get shortly after birth called cradle cap. This ugly, yellow, rough, scaly patch forms on your sweet baby’s head. It is unsightly, even if we all know it is common and will go away. It still is a bit unnerving. Although cradle cap usually appears on infants, hence the term ‘cradle cap’, toddlers get it too. Cradle cap is most common on the baby’s head, but can happen on the face and neck. Yes…it is unsightly, but there is no need for alarm. Simply put, cradle cap is an infant form of dandruff. Cradle cap is not part of any illness and does not imply that baby is not being well cared for.
How many parents have come to your store looking for products to get rid of cradle cap? May I share a solution?
An all-natural oil: we recommend olive or coconut
A New People Perfect Baby Brush
Gentle all-natural baby shampoo
Your tender loving care
- An hour before bath-time, rub baby’s scalp with olive or coconut to help lift the crusts and loosen scales.
- At bath-time, first get the scalp wet, then gently scrub the scalp with the perfect brush…the New People Company Baby Brush, just like the ones used in hospitals. Brush for a few minutes to remove the scales and massage their head.
- Now wash the scalp with a natural baby shampoo, rinse well, and gently towel dry.
- Repeat for each bath until gone.
