Gabe's always gone on his own, since he was about 2 weeks old. Its best as when they stir in the night, they don't need you to get them back off to sleep. It's not easy for all babies though! xxxx

I think you need to let him get used to going to sleep on his own in his cot otherwise whenever he wakes in the night he will only go back to sleep this way - have you tried cc?? it works for some, just try putting him in his cot tonight and for all sleep times, it will take a while but eventually it should work but with a lot of tears!!! does he have same routine for naps?? Evan is put in his sleeping bag, has his dummy, given his frog (soft toy) and his musical pooh put on for every sleep unless we are out and its took ages but he will be asleep within a couple of mins now

hi hayley, I have just seen this post.
My lo also used to only sleep in my arms for her naps. I decided enough was enough and with the help of bedhead
I used pupd as I couldn't bare(?sp) to hear her cry for ages. Since the new year, she will only sleep in her cot unless really tired her pushchair.
I suggest give it a go and see how you get on, you do need to be persistent though.
A month later she doesnt always fall straight to sleep. She does everything she can to battle out of it! 3hrs on my own downstairs is lovely now! I can finally get jobs done and have some me time

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
