Cradle cap is a common problem among babies during their first weeks of life. Providing the right care delivers excellent results.
Cradle cap – also known as milk crust – is a yellow, patchy, crusty skin rash that develops on the head of an infant, especially on the fontanel, that area of the scalp moms usually like to avoid. In certain cases, cradle cap reaches the upper forehead. It can also be found in the eyebrows and behind the ears.
Cradle cap is not due to poor hygiene and has nothing to do with cradles.
In reality, cradle cap occurs as a result of the mother’s hormones being passed on to the baby during birth, which leads to an overproduction of sebum that can cause the crusty rash. This transfer of hormones is normal and, again, the problem is quite common! Did you know that 2 out of 3 infants get it?
