ahh i just wrote it all out and it went ahh have to do it again now grr. ok peel and chop a potato ( normal one not sweet) and steam it then add some cauliflower and steam until soft then put in a bowl and add grated cheese and blend. u will need to keep tasting and addin cauliflower til u think it tastes nice as potato doesnt have much taste so u may to keep adding the cauliflower and then add as much cheese as u think. i do a nice tomato one too. u put a few tomatoes in boiling water for 30 secs then transfer to cold then the skin should come off then u de seed them and chop and saute in a pan with no salt butter then add to the steamed potatos and add cheese and blend. very yummy!! add tomatoes bit at time again and taste thats what i do. i also make a really nice dessert. its cooked apple and strawberries. u peel de cor and chop 2 dessert apples( pink lady is good) u chop the stem off the strawberries and chop up ( about 2oz) and put in a pan with the apples add a tiny amount of water and put lid on and cook on low heat keep checking as it makes its own water so u may need to keep emptyin some. takes about 5mins sometimes apple takes a bit longer then the strawberries. then put in a bowl and add a quater of rusk crumble it in or a spoonful of babyrice i use rusk and then blend. i feeze all mine that tastes like crumbe its sooo nice x x

Hiya, they can have cheese from 6 months, Gabe used to like cauliflour and broccoli pureed with grated cheese added. We use mild cheddar for him but that's all we have in the house anyway but I think mature should be fine too, just use a bit less of it. The cheeses you can't give are soft cheese (apart from things like dairylea and philly, they're OK) and mould ripened blue cheese.

Yep Cheese from 6 months is FINE and any kind is good - my lo likes the stronger flavours so just try and see! Grated in food, in sandwiches, as chunks etc etc is all good!

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
