Our first child suffered from cradle cap until she was about 18 months old. I was so surprised that this condition could last as long as it did. We had a special brush that we would use on her head regularly to help get rid of the scales, but it never got rid of them all. I even tried olive oil once. Uh, yeah….she had a greasy head for the next 4 or 5 days as I tried every day to get it out of her baby fine hair.
Gentle Naturals is a homeopathic line of products that have found their way into our medicine cabinet, and their product called Cradle Cap Care is all ready to go! We’ve already seen a bit of cradle cap on Layah, but Tim was able to brush it all out. The second it comes back (and it WILL come back), we are armed and ready! This product retails for $7.99, and I’m very pleased to hear that it is a non-greasy formula. There will be no repeat of what we experienced with Darah!
We also have their Homeopathic Teething Drops. Layah is already drooling all the time, so the teething pain will be here before you know it. This product helps relieve sore gums and irritability and can safely be used as soon as she turns 4 months old. It retails for $5.49, which is SO worth is when you have a teething baby!
Finally, we have the Eczema Relief Baby Wash. I suffered from eczema when I was a child, so I’m really happy to have something on hand if I suspect Layah has it, as well. I remember taking oatmeal baths to try to help with it; they always felt so weird! While we haven’t yet had to use this product with Layah, I imagine the lavender and chamomile in the product smells and feels better than the oatmeal baths I used to take! This product retails for $5.49.
The Gentle Naturals line has treatments not only for the conditions mentioned above, but also for colic, stomach discomfort, and dry skin. The entire line is dermatologist tested and contains ingredients like chamomile, shea butter, coconut butter, aloe and ginger.
Gentle Naturals products can be found at many major retailers, including Walmart and Walgreens. You can also find the products online at places like Amazon, Diapers.com and Drugstore.com.
