Attention all parents!! This foam soap is amazing for treating cradle cap in babies! my baby had a bad case of cradle cap and I have tried everything even oils that leaves my babies hair all greasy (my baby has long hair too) I used one pump of mustela. Massaged it into baby's wet hair, waited 2 minutes then went in with safety 1st brand cradle cap brush and comb. Her cradle cap was literally almost all gone after one use. Wish I would've had a before picture! It doesn't leave baby's hair all nasty either. I would definitely recommend this to anyone trying to treat a baby with cradle cap!

I bought this shampoo because it was highly recommended for cradle cap. My daughter had a slight amount of cradle cap. I would wet her hair. Squeeze a foam amount on her scalp. Let it sit for a minute or two while I wash her body. I would then take a baby brush and lightly brush the dry flakes away. After about 1 week her cradle cap was gone. I still use the shampoo daily and have not notice any cradle cap returning.

This stuff! Cradle Cap Lifesaver! My daughter had the WORST cradle cap from birth. I tried everything under the sun from creams, lotions, breastmilk, oils, you name it if I read it in my research, I tried it. Nothing helped. Finally I heard someone mention Mustela Foam Shampoo and I decided to bite the bullet (because if an $11 shampoo didn't work that was a good chunk of $$ wasted) and I ordered it. Within a week of using it I noticed a drastic change in my daughters head.

My daughter loves this shampoo. She had a lot of cradle cap when she was born. I still use this in her, even though she is now 6 months. Works very well! Mustela® Foam Shampoo for Newborns

Smells great. But this only works for babies not toddlers. A little on the expensive side for a small bottle. Easy to find in the baby section. Great shampoo for newborns. Easy on the eyes for kids. Got this one at meijer.

I use this for my babygirl. Very gentle on her skin. Doesn’t burn the eyes. Doesn’t take much to lather. Really cleans baby scalp and hair. It’s affordable and can’t be found at any baby store. I use all the Mustela baby products in my babygirl!

This product deserves way more than 5 stars!! My daughter had really bad cradle cap and just after 1 use I could already tell a difference. This product is a little pricey for a baby shampoo but would totally buy it again if I had to!!

This shampoo worked well with our babies cradle cap however it didn’t work overwhelmingly well as a shampoo. It wasn’t Very foamy and it didn’t smell very good. However I would just regular shampoo after to make up for it.

Holy grail product. My daughter started getting really bad cradle cap and when my son was her age (3 months) he got cradle cap and I couldn’t find a solution to get his under control. I started researching and came across this. I’ve used this for 3 weeks now and it has drastically has changed her cradle cap. It isn’t thick and crusty anymore. Just small patches here and there but when I put this in her hair and then use the cradle cap brush comes right off. This even got rid of the stubborn patches my son had.
Highly recommend!

This is another one of my holy grail baby products. This is a must have for new borns. Not only does it smell fantastic, but it clears ALL cradle cap with in one use and prevents it from forming. I even use it on my 3 year old. He has dandruff really bad and this stuff clears it right up! I always suggest this product for new moms!! Put that other brand down and give this a try! You won't regret it!

Does this really help with cradle cap? I have worked in childcare and have seen even toddlers who still have it pretty bad. I am due in July and want to make sure that this can help manage it!
