cap usually occurs in young babies before the age of three months, causing yellow, crusty scales to form on their scalps. In most cases it will go away on its own, but if you want to tackle the issue, simply massage a few drops of oil onto your bub’s scalp and then wash off with a baby shampoo the next morning. If it continues to reoccur or spreads to other areas of the body, seek medical advice.
If your baby’s skin is sensitive, use products free of paraben, fragrance and alcohol.
