My baby’s head is a disaster. He has the worst case of cradle cap I’ve ever seen and since he has almost no hair, it’s obvious to everyone. And I hate it. It’s so ugly.
I’ve tried olive oil, I’ve tried baby shampoo, I’ve tried leaving it alone. Nothing works. His four month (!!!!) appointment is next week, so I’m hoping the doctor has some suggestions. It wouldn’t bother me so much except for the fact that his scalp is so sensitive that the second I take the socks off his hands, he’s scratching his head and nicking it up so it looks like a) he has a bunch of open wounds or b) his head is full of scabs. I cut his nails all the time but if I leave his hands free of socks, he still somehow cuts up his face or head. I’m at a loss.
I know this too shall pass, and I’m probably just being vain, but I need suggestions! He’s not in any apparent discomfort or pain and smiles happily while he cuts up his scalp with his nails. I’d post a picture but it’s so ugly and gross, I don’t want any of you to see it.
