Anyone got any tips to ease teething. Caleb has just been screaming all day today and so clingy. Has this happened to you too??

I know how you feel. My lo is now 9months and has front top and frontbottom teeth and looks like more on way again. Its neverending.
We use Anbesol liquid, gel, teetha granules and constantly handing out cold teething rings. When its really bad I give her nurofen. She does get really clingy too and cries if I leave the room but soon passes.
Sorry but no real cure, just cuddles and distraction.

i have had such a bad day first of things to come i would imagine.Where did u get the anbesol stuff from, and what are the granules pls??

I get anbesol liquid from the chemist. You have to ask for it though. You also get it in a gel which I have for when I'm out and about. The granules are homeopatic chamomile and calms your lo down. It also helps my lo's tummy as she gets sore tummy while teething. You get the granules from the chemists too.

Ella was 15 weeks when she started teething and she cut her first tooth at 6months and 1 week, just popped another 2 at 8months and seems to be getting more as we speak, she is 9months now. I think it stops around 2 years but depends on child.

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
