Cradle Cap Hair Falling Out

DeeJay - February 5

My dd is 5 mo old and has just now developed some cradle cap. I noticed though, that when the flakes come off the have some fine hair attached to them. She has had alot of hair since birth, but could this just be the fine baby hair falling out? A friend of mine told me they sell a shampoo for cradle cap at Babies r us and that it really works, but now I am afraid all her hair might come off with the flakes!!! Does anyone know if their baby hair comes off this way, or is this another problem?

My dd's hair fell out this way... as I got rid of the cradle cap, I also got rid of her hair (it happened from the front of her head and receded to the back) :-( But, it started regrowing and was pretty even by 15 months.

this happened to my son too. At a few week old he had lost almost all of his hair along with the cradle cap. I used the baby oil gel and a fine tooth baby comb. worked like a charm and never came back.
