I have had to instinctively slap, swat or grab strange white women's hands coming in to reach for Kaya's hair many times. 
I still don't understand why some people think they are entitled to pet a stranger's child but.... Today on okdani.com I wrote about some of my family's experiences as an #interracialcouple with #mixedkids.

I gave tips on what NOT to do or say when interacting with mixed families.

Link in profile. Please check it out and share liberally. 
I am annoyed that in 2020 a post like this needed to be written, but I hope in writing it I can help other mothers of mixed (or Black) children who deal with this type of nonsense on the regular.

How to Treat Cradle Cap on Your Afro Baby

It’s been a couple of months and you’ve been enjoying everything about being a mom to a brand-new baby. The coos, the tiny clothing and even the drool bring you endless amounts of joy. But lately you’ve noticed something happening on your baby’s perfect skin. Dry yellow patches have been appearing on your baby’s scalp and the “mommy worries” begin to creep in. Your girlfriend notices the patches and says those dreaded words:

“It looks like cradle cap.”

Oh no!

Your mind starts to race:

What is cradle cap exactly?

Will she have this forever?

Is it hurting her?

Will it get worse?!

Rest assured momma, it isn’t the end of the world; and your precious bundle will not have this affliction for long. Read on to find out the ‘what’s’ and ‘why’s’ of cradle cap and discover what you can do to help speed along the healing process.

According to the Family Physicians Inquires Network, cradle cap is a form of seborrheic dermatitis – Basically, a skin fungus caused by oily skin and yeast. It shows as greasy patches of scaling on the scalp of infants between the ages of 2 weeks to 6 months. (It can happen in children up to age 4 but it is less common.) It’s an ailment that’s actually quite prevalent in African American infants.

The description sounds way worse than it actually is. Even if you don’t treat the cradle cap, it usually clears up on its own after 8 months. Not only that, but it normally doesn’t bother the baby at all. In other words, it’s more of an aesthetic nuisance that stresses mom out more that the little one. But no worries – There are a few options you can choose from to cure cradle cap in your baby fast.

*The following should not replace advice and recommendations given to you by a pediatrician.


Option 1: If your baby is younger than 6 months, many have found using a dime to quarter-sized amount of mineral oilThis is an affiliate link.

If it’s a really stubborn case, use coconut oil This is an affiliate link.

(*I’d recommend doing a patch test first with a tiny amount prior to treating the full head in order to check for allergies.)

Option 2: If your little one is 6 to 8 months; you may want to try using an anti-dandruff shampooThis is an affiliate link. Buying via these links helps me buy more coffee, and cool tools that help me provide you with the best content. . The shampoo should contain the ingredient ketoconazole (Nizoral) which has proven effective on cradle cap.

Option 3: Talk to your pediatrician who may prescribe an antifungal. If the cradle cap is severe and has spread to the neck and ears, an antifungal may be in order.

Option 4: Just leave it alone. There hasn’t been a single reason established as to how cradle cap starts. A baby’s adjusting hormones, a particular off-brand formula, or even the weather have all been identified as culprits. The reality is that it’s, most likely, just a “growing pain” happening within your little one’s ever-changing body. Leaving it alone and letting it run its course may save both you AND your little one from extra stress; and then you can save your sanity for the next parenting challenge ahead.
