Don't wait... sounds like ur struggling already! Go now as ur son needs a mum with a healthy mind!!

I’m planning on staying with my ex-MIL if we go into lockdown so she’s not on her own. She’s not in a high risk group and is great with the kids. Luckily we still get on well!

Go, but do it now!

You don't want to be on your own with just a one year old for months, much better to go and stay there. You're making the right decision. Depending on how far away they are (if you're in the same town) you're unlikely to be unable to leave and just return home if you want to later on.

Yes I would go - start packing and good luck 💐

I think it’s best if you go. Good luck Flowers

Does she live within walking distance ? If yes then you could wait a bit but if not you should go now.

I think you should go. Not everyone is the same & I think fro the sound of it you need the company.
Pack as much as you can, take toys and books, laptop, chargers and anything else you might need. If it is too much you can always go home, I think that would be allowed depending on distance.
