You know those days where you would try anything for a silent night? It seems mums are turning to this Sleepy Lotion from Lush as a miracle cure.

The lotion, made from oatmeal, almond oil, lavender, tonka bean and cocoa butter promises a good night’s sleep and earlier this week an Essex mum told the Daily Mail ‘I’d go as far to say the lotion is a miracle, especially for me as a working mum.’

Designed for adults, this limited-edition lotion has recently been brought back online and in stores following its success. We spoke to a representative from Lush and asked whether this perfumed product is suitable for use on a baby’ sensitive skin. Lush told Mother & Baby:

‘Lush makes all of its own product perfume and we follow the international fragrance guidelines when doing so, the perfume in Sleepy body lotion falls within all the recommended parameters of them.

As a general rule for babies we don’t think you should put any perfumed products on them under the age of six months.

Our advice to parents is to wear the lotion yourselves rather than applying it to your baby. However, you can use your own judgement in this instance.’

We’d advise following Lush’s advice and not using the product on your baby under six months.
