Cradle cap

My baby has a mild case of cradle cap. You can only see it in certain lighting. I wasn’t worried about it but daddy was and brought it up to the doctor at our 6 month wellness checkup. Our doctor recommended using olive oil. I rubbed a small amount on my son’s head a few hours before his bath, washed his hair good, and then brushed it with a fine tooth comb and soft bristle brush. The flakes loosened and the cradle cap improved but has not fully resolved. At times it’s worse than others. I would like to try using olive oil several consecutive days, because I do think it works, but I haven’t been able to coordinate with bath times yet.  I will keep you posted. Any other recommendations?!?!
