how many bottles do i need? ive got 7. when is the best time to sterilise them? at the end of the day so they are ready in the morning?

7 bottles will be fine babies normally have say 6 feeds initially and a spare bottle just in case, it all depends on what sort of sterliser you have ie steam, microwave and how long the bottles stay steralise once done same 6 hours some longer, I used to sterlise in the early evening and then make enough bottles to last until after morning feed say 3 bottles, then would sterliase again and make up bottles for the day. I have a steam steraliser. Generally once sterliser is open you should use bottles straightaway. Hope that helps.

When LO was first born I used to do it every night then put bottles together with just water in ready for next day's feeds. I'd add the powder just before her feeds. Now she's only on 3 bottles a day I only sterilise every other day.

i used to sterilise after we'd used 3 bottles even tho steriliser held 4 bottles until we got into a proper routine, now i just sterilise every night for the next day x

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
