Hi I remember you posting in baby. My dd is 20 months too. I've read somewhere that some children are early risers & there's nothing you can do to change it. Sorry to sound negative. A friend of mine gives her dd milk when she wakes at 6 then she goes back to sleep. Not sure if that would help. We bring r dd into r bed & put tv on quietly so she can watch it & we can stil rest in bed without actually getting up. Sorry not been much help

What time does he go down to bed? Perhaps push it back by half an hour.
My LO always wakes up around 6am and she's just about to turn 2. I think she is an early riser...and the lighter mornings don't help.

Has this been going on for long?
My DD is 21 months old and for about a month she was waking just before 6AM. She's now waking at 7AM again now though. I just put it down to her having a bit of a cold and getting some more teeth through.
If it's not just a phase, try pushing bedtime back by about half an hour, if that doesn't work, obviously go back to original bedtime, as it won't do him much good to make him more tired.
Does he have a comforter that he takes to bed with him? If he doesn't, then try giving him one, and that could stop him from crying when he wakes...?
Just suggestions, let me know if any of them help.

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
