Sometimes this is usually because if babies sweat process is interrupted such as if you put a hat on your baby prolonged or if you are continuously trying a cap around baby's head the cradle cap is especially seen in more in babies born in winter because of entire 4 months they are tied up in Caps which causes excessive sweating in the scalp skin and hence producing more sebum/ oil which may sometimes infect the skin and cause even a dermatitis. cradle cap is very normal. to remove it you will only need to oil it properly and brush your baby's hair gently you have to oil and brush every day so that it will come off in little amounts and will vanish completely after two weeks of regular Vigilance. You should only see you pediatrician if on brushing your baby is crying or you see a little blood oozing out of your babies scalp because that can signal a dermatitis which will be treated with help of antifungal ointment usually it is also said that it is the placental fluid accumulation on your baby's head which is not absolutely right if cradle cap is not handled properly it may lead to a lot of hair fall and if not cleaned properly it can keep accumulating and inflame your baby's scalp skin layer.
