Strange question but where in your bedroom do you keep the moses basket, I can't decide weather to have it up against the wall, next to my side of bed or at foot of the bed! Just wondered where you kept yours!

with ds1 it was next to the bed, but ds2 was slightly further away against the wall.
Neither was better than the other apart from I could touch ds1 and check he was breathing!

I had Toby's right up to my side of the bed - that way I could reach out and reassure him without getting out of bed. I was BFing so it was also really easy to just pull him into bed with me for a feed and then replace him without me actually having to get up - lazy mummy!!

I had Benjamin's generally at the side of my bed when he was first born for ease, then moved it to the foot of the bed after a week or so as he was so noisy, then moved him to his own room at 3 weeks as he was such a noisy sleeper that I was waking up constantly when he was still flat out! x

With my DS, I had his basket right up to my side of the bed. When we first put it in our room, we had it at the foot of the bed, but I wanted him closer to me so I could reach out and touch him.
Although, now in the new house, the bedroom is smaller, so I will struggle to fit it down my side, I will find a way to have Baby close as possible to me! xx

hi everyone, new here but desperate for advice! My son is 1 month old on Tuesday and has been bottle feeding for the past 2 weeks. He has had problems since. He is extremely irritable, I’m sure my Son doesn’t have anytime while awake not crying, he cries ALL the time and I try EVERYTHING with no success. I have been to the hospital and doctors and they are so very unhelpful, they just tell me he has colic and basically I have to deal with it. I am almost certain, and the hospital also said, he has reflux (silent) as he rarely spits up but it is getting far worse and he is becoming more and more irritable, coughing after feeds and in between and starting to refuse feeds, scream, want them, take them and scream again. He has had Carobel from the hospital as they didn’t want to give Gaviscon due to chance of constipation, but it did absolutely nothing for him. He is now simply on infacol but has trouble pooing, which causes him distress, but is very runny. I guess i am I am desperately looking for advice on what to do, as it is increasingly hard with a baby that cries all day and won’t sleep or settle due to milk coming back up. I feel like I’m missing something and not giving him what he needs? HE IS SUCH A HUNGRY BABY! I feed him, change his nappy, cuddle him, sing to him, wind him, put him in swinger, walk round house, car - I am lost! Health visitor has done a referral to dietician however who knows how long this will take! Dad is lactose intolerant. Also, how much does your baby eat, or did eat at 1 month? Mine wants food every 1.5/2 hours! Please help!
