Hair for the Heiress
Written on November 12, 2007 by Kevin.
Kaitlyn seemed to always have cradle cap from the time she was born. I can't tell you how many times we talked to the doctor about it, including urgent care when we went for other reasons. They all gave us the same answer. Cover her head in oil and then brush it out. Well this would work for the day but by morning it would return. This had gone on for months until her scalp finally began an infection and then the doctors rushed in with some real help.
Now that her head is 99% cleared up she is finally starting to really begin to grow hair. In fact, it looks like her hair is trying to make up for lost time and is sprouting rather quickly. She still has splotches of no hair but the hair that she does have is now fluffy while her little mullet type hair in the back remains the same.
It's amazing the changes that have taken place since we began some real treatment for her cradle cap. She is like a whole new baby girl that really loves to smile now. I only wish that the doctors would have really helped us earlier. How many times did we need to hear the same thing?
