What can I do about my 2-month-olds dandruff?

Hey mamas! My baby is almost two months old and has a head full of hair. I noticed she has dandruff, and I’m wondering what I can do about it? Anyone else has babies with dandruff? TIA

Could be cradle cap?

When you bathe your kiddo just rub gently with the brush from the hospital and it will go away after a few washes. It’s usually cradle cap and is similar to dandruff. :grin:

Dandruff?? Sounds more like cradles cap all babies get it just wash with a camomile baby shampoo.

It’s cradle cap. Use a soft bristle brush on her head when you wash it, then massage coconut oil into her scalp.

Cradle cap. Both my boys had a ton of hair and had the same thing. It will clear on it’s own in a few months. Otherwise, just use baby shampoo and loosen the scales with a soft brush. If it’s really bad your doc can prescribe a medicated shampoo.

If it gets really bad, chat with your doctor. My son had a special shampoo that was prescribed to us and it cleared it right up!

Most likely it cradle cap , use oil or lotion to keep it moisturized and you can also take a soft baby brush and do circular motions to help with the ones ready to flake off while in or after a bath .

Get a baby fine tooth comb and baby oil rub the babys head and gently comb it and it will help remove it

Head and shoulders just be super careful

Coconut oil, put a hat on baby and let the coconut oil sit for a few hours, use a baby comb or special cradle cap brush to loosen and get it all out, than bathe baby too get the oil and loose cradle cap out.

Just a little bit of oil (not too much so it doesn’t clog) and a gentle baby brush. Works like a charm.
