Tonight I thought it would be a good idea to finally tackle the cradle cap Ezri has been rocking for the past few months. I had read that it would go away on it's own, but it hasn't, so I thought I would be slightly more aggressive. I searched on the internet and found that if you put baby oil, mineral oil or Vaseline on the scalp and let it sit, it would help to lift some of the flakes and then you can just wash it off. The flakes are gently removed that way. I guess I never thought that Vaseline on hair might not be the best idea. After 3 shampoos, it's still there and gooey as ever. Nathan just took one look and said "Well I guess you better google that as well". I guess I better stop googling things, but I did it anyways and found that apparently Vaseline in kids hair is a world wide problem. A lot of mom's have suffered this problem and each one has a home remady. Nathan also has a home remady: Do nothing. And you know what, I'm not going to put any more junk into her hair and just let it work itself out.
She doesn't really seem affected at all, not at all as stressed out as mommy.
