Please I would like to know if oiling the anterior fontanelle is necessary in a newborn. In addition is using cap on the baby's head supposed to be always?
You don't need to apply oil several times a day. Just use a little after shampoo to prevent the scalp getting dry. Not the religious ones of always keeping oil on the fontanelle. Wearing cap is highly unnecessary most especially in a hot weather. Just ensure you always dress your baby according to the weather.Those living in cold temperate regions can wear caps more.
