I've seen that too. Makes me so sad! One of my boys had cradle cap really bad... Isaac I think? Anyways, I ended up using oil on his head, with a cap on for overnight, then washing his hair with tea tree oil and combing his head well - really made a difference quickly.

Andrea - Poor little Josiah! Maybe my kids haven't had baby acne bad, but that doesn't look like a normal case to me.
I've mentioned it before on here, I think to you even, but we've had great luck with Thentix lotion - it is awesome for Isaac's and my eczema, and I used it all the time with Levi from birth on and have never had a newbie with such clear skin. I kinda thought it myself, but had tons of comments about his face/skin from random people as well
