Court slams baby death.
Cameron Ayres died from a hereditary condition which caused severe nappy rash and a swelling of his liver and stomach.
But Coroner Alison Thompson said: "With conventional medicine it would have been diagnosed and the child could have expected a normal life span."
Homeopath Rita McGovern said she begged Cameron's dad, osteopath Jeremy Ayres, to take him to a doctor. Two weeks later the child was dead.
Mr Ayres, of Thames Ditton, Surrey, said he and wife Sylvie put the child's crying down to "teething".
Verdict: Natural causes.
