Hi ladies. A Q fo a family member. Her LO is on C&G comfort for reflux. She has really dark, runny (and very smaelly) nappies. Is this normal? Thankyou xx

Yes!! My friend used this and had exactly the same. I also used it for 5 days on the hv advice but changed back as my lo didn't need it and it did stink!!!! The formula is to help constipation as well so their nappies will be a lot runnier!!! It is completely normal.

My lo was on C & G Comfort until very recently. It worked very well for her colic. Her nappies were generally green & could be quite runny. As Little Miss L says, it does also help constipation, so this could cause it. We were advised to expect green, explosive nappies initially.
I know Cow & Gate have a website that have advisors on, who you can chat to on-line, or call them up. If you have any queries, you could always try this. I've always found them really helpful xx

My lo is on Aptamil comfort & is the same dark green runny poo's. I think they are made by the same company but when we tried the cow & gate he was a lot sicker as well. He had a few problems with constipation & colic. He seems a lot happier since we changed him over to this though. We have been using it now for about 6 weeks & its still the same now x x

so the comfort milks are for colic and not reflux? Her HV isnt very helpful aparently and just keeps saying its a ommon problem which isnt helpful to a first time mum. xx

Comfort milk can be used for both colic and reflux.
Because it is thicker it stays down easier (in theory!)

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
