Christopher was 3 years old when it happened. He acted different, played with toys in his own way, and seemed out of touch with the world around him and I didn’t know WHY. After an evaluation, my world went completely upside down.

Cradle Cap Products: Do they Work? http://www.incredibleinfant.com

Cradle cap. Also known as (to myself) scale scalp, dragon dandruff, funky flakes, and newbie noggin. It's yellowish.  Crusty.   And very common. It's also harmless (except to your ego). I remember Elena's cradle cap being so bad that I made her wear a hat every day. I may have looked like the world's most sun-sensitive helicopter mom, but in reality I was just  tired of the look of ... [Continue Reading]
