Your probably better off just sticking with calpol to ease the pain. If he has a stuffy nose, vapourisers are excellent or some olbas oil

Tyler has just been having simple linctus (go to the doc so he can perscribe the right dose age wise) you can get baby olbus oils. Its defo normal to be worse at night. Hope hes feeling better soon xx xx

your doing the right thing by giving more feeds and water. If your worried then do take him to the doctors, they will be able to check him over and give you advice and a prescription if needed. A doctor should never mind seeing a baby when they're ill.
At night, you could try raising one end of the cot to help him breath more easily.
hope he's feeling better soon

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
