You dont need to give your bf babie water as the first part of your milk is watery. I personally gave my lo little bits of water as she was born in the summer and it was hot - it also could help to get us home if she was hungry before I learnt how to feed descreatly! BUT - she did spit most of it out! lol Now i'm weaning her I give her water with meals but she still spits some of it out........

My HV told me that if a baby is BF then they do not need any water at all. However I do know people that have given their babies water from only 2 weeks old even BFing. Jack started having water at 3 weeks to drink in between his feeds, he was bottlefed.
I think its a personal choice, and if you think Evie needs a drink of water then she probably does!
Kelsie was breastfed for 4 months and she had water a few times if i thought she needed it.

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
