it's your child, BUT, I would never use baby oil on my child.
It is known to be fatal when inhaled.
Better safe than sorry.
Cradle Cap may LOOK bad, but it is harmless. It happens. My daughter has it, and the doctor told me to just leave it alone, and that's exactly what I've done.
Even trying, is going to make their hair fall out.

When my daughter had cradle cap, I put baby oil on my hands and massaged her head. Left it on for about 10 minutes and then got her baby comb and gently combed through it. It'd be little transparent flakes all over, washed her hair and it was gone.

I'd use baby oil and brush it off. I have cradle cap myself, and it's miserable. Some people might say it's 'harmless', but that shit ITCHES.
