You could try putting a small bowl of water on a radiator, putting some child kalvol oil on a tissue and put it in between his vest and his top, and raise his cot one side by either putting some books underneath the legs or a folded blanket under the cot mattress.
Hope that helps

Charlie recently had his first cold. We bought a vaporiser from boots which we used at bedtime. It was fab, it filled the room with a vicks type vapour which helped keep his nose unblocked. The first couple of nights without this were a nightmare, he would wake every few hours because he was really congested. First night we used this he slept thru. Highly recommend it!
Lo has to be 3+ months to use it. not sure how old your lo is xxx

Have you also tried putting a pillow/towel under his mattress to raise his head? We found this helped along with the karvol..
Lucie...never thought of that either...a tissue under the top would also probably help during the day too.

You can get saline drops - we used ones called nasosol - that you put in lo's nose to help clear it - It makes the snot runny and come out.
Also, raise the head end of the cot to help lo breath better at night.

Trying to conceive with PCOS.
Hi, I hope I’m posting this in the right place. I’m new to this so bare with me 🙈. Background - I was diagnosed with PCOS a little over a year ago and have been trying to conceive for just over 2 years. I have been to fertility appointments who haven’t found any additional problems (e.g. hcg scan came back clear) and my partners tests were all ok. I understand weight is a big factor with PCOS and I have lost 10% of my body weight as recommended and keep trying to loose more. The more time goes on the more deflated and useless I feel. Each time I get excited thinking it might be my time then I get a false test 🤦♀️ The fertility appointments are far apart and the months in between each one just seem longer and longer. I was was wondering if anyone had been through similar experiences and have any advice? I have also read online that ovulation sticks don’t always work for women with PCOS. Anyone have any advice on this? Thank you for taking the time to read this. x
