Ruby has now had two bottom teeth for about 2 weeks.
A thought has just ocurred that I should be brushing them!
I have bought a baby toothbrush and baby toothpaste.
What do i do?
How much toothpaste?

I do Charlotte's morning & night - have done since 6 months when her 1st teeth camr thru. I use a tiny smear of paste and try to brush for as long as possible (which isn't for long at the moment)!
Try to make it as fun as possible, she may hate it at 1st - then again may love it!

Hiya I do Bethany's in the morning when I do mine and at night when she's having a bath. I use a little blob now as she's 17mth old but at first I'd use just a smear. I found the best way to do it was to brush for a little bit myself just to make sure they got some sort of clean then let her have the toothbrush so she cud do it herself. I still do this now and every time we have a bath she asks me to give her her toothbrush so she can brush her teeth. The dentist told me that as long as a bit of toothpaste is getting to the teeth thats good enough, so don't be rigid with it make it fun and relaxed x

I think there was a small tube of toothpaste in pone of the bounty packs!
I try to brush Louise's teeth twice a day, she loves it and cries when I stop!
To begin with I gave her the toothbrush to play with (dry, no toothpaste). Then she ws quite happy to let me brush her teeth using a tiny smear of toothpaste - the only difficulty is that she closes her mouth to suck on it!
I read somewhere that you should approach from the side or behind lo with the toothbrush.

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
