Another mum also said she would be trying the product on her own son: ‘Poor little boy it's so horrible seeing these little ones so sore. I will try anything right now!!!!’

The coconut oil - available to purchase FROM Boots, JoJo, Ocado, Amazon and their own website (£7.99 for 168g pot) - has also been credited by other parents for helping with their babie's acne and other skin conditions.

The brand describes the product as being completely safe to use on babies from day one as a moisturiser, nappy balm or massage oil, and suitable for sensitive skin and eczema-prone skin.
