Why does my baby have a yellow crust on its head?

Postnatal, Your questions

Your baby likely has cradle cap on its scalp. This is due to their body temperature. Yep! They are likely a warm baby that probably wears a bonnet or cap that traps their body heat…Please read my article about the topic for explanations and practical advice.
