comment Stomach damage/sickness long after pregnancy?
Thanks for the answer. It's good to know that at least she's not alone and, while this could be a coincidence (a sample size of 3 isn't much to go on), it may also be, as suspected, a side-effect of pregnancy.

comment Removing mould from baby clothing
As stated, I don't want to put them on a really hot wash as it will damage the (plasticky) clothing. The elastic in one cuff has already gone loose due, I think, to being left on a hot radiator.

comment How do I wean my 2 year old from requiring holding my hand to sleep?
I could be wrong, but I heard somewhere that it's a few years before children grasp the idea of a future tense. That said, the tone of voice may work wonders.

I understood that it was best tried between 1 and 3 years. IIRC from the book my wife quoted to me.

comment We're looking to get pregnant - what can we do to optimize our chances?
Anecdotally, stress seems to be counter-productive, so relaxing is good advice.
