How old is your LO? Eoins been going to bed at 7pm from about 7 months old... we gradually made it earlier as his milk intake dropped xxx

It will gradually get earlier so don't worry. Gabe used to go to bed at 9 when he was younger but at 10 weeks ish it became 7-8. Now he is 6 1/2 months and he goes to bed at 7.30 - 8 x

My lo is 16 weeks and I am doing bathtime at 9pm, so she is down by 9.45/10 ish. Personally I prefer it that way because she sleeps through till 8 and I can get mor sleep myself- I worry that if I tried to put her down earlier she would be waking at 6am! Later on I will gradually bring it forward as she needs less milk, and also it will need to be brought forward for when I return to work.

I think some babies will let you gradually inch them back towards an early bedtime, in twenty or so minute increments... try a little earlier each night. However some don't
! I found with my eldest who detested missing a moment of day light, if it meant waiting up for the sunrise, that once they start crawling and walking they wear them selves out enough to sleep a little better... you could try an afternoon swim...

We started a bed time routine at 6 weeks old and its worked well. He has a bath between 6:30 and 7 and is usually down and sleep by 7:30-8. He gets really horrible if we keep him up any later!

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
