Ask at the chemist they usually know what you can give.

we were reccommended to try a little orange juice.

hi, do you give your lo water? Lots of water could help. A little orange jiuce in water should also help but be carefuk with putting it in a bottle as the sugar in the juice can effect lo's teeth trough thier gums if it is done often - using a easy pour trainng cup is best but not so easy to do with a 5 week old!
You could also try massaging your lo's tummy in a clockwise direction to get get things moving, and/or making cycling movements with thier legs can apparently help too.
Hope it gets moving soon!

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
