Hey just something i learnt today, apparently rubbing a little breastmilk into your babies cradle cap can help cure it . 2 or 3 times a day rub a little breastmilk into your babies scalp which is affected by cradle cap and rub it in gently for around 2 mins and this will help get rid of it.
Pretty cool totaly natural way of dealing with the situation. If it doesn’t work then at least you know it won;t harm your baby as it’s only your own milk you are rubbing in. Can;t say i ever tried it myself, when i had my daughter she got cradle cap ( which child doesn’t?) and because i didn’t know of any other method i went straight for the medicated shampoo, but if i had known there were natural remedies i would have tried this for sure.
Now i am not a Dr so i cannot say for sure this works, but it is a piece of advise i got from a long serving midwife so who knows there maybe some truth in it!
