Elina explains: "Baby won't sleep? This works every time!

"Step 1: Glide index finger from forehead to nose. Step 2: Gently rub eyebrows from inside to outside."

While the specific technique is not scientifically verified, according to The National Childbirth Trust (NCT) baby massage in general has a number of benefits, with some mums reporting improved sleep for their babies.

They explain: "Baby massage is the gentle, rhythmic stroking of your baby's body using your hands. As part of a massage routine, you might gently manipulate your baby's ankles, wrists and fingers.

"Today, there is widespread belief that baby massage can increase a mum’s awareness of her baby’s needs and support their early bond, as well as improve her sense of well-being if she is suffering with postnatal depression or other mental health issues.

"The evidence is inconclusive on these points but parents do say they find baby massage a lovely way of bonding with their baby."

And a third added: "Literally just tried this after almost a hour of her screaming fighting her sleep and did it 3 times she closed her eyes and is sleep! Thank you."
