My 8 week old keeps gnawing on her fists and i don't know why, i don't think it's hunger as i offer her milk but she doesn't want it.

Hi Mrs P
It could be the start of teething. His her cheeks red?

My ds2 is 10weeks old and he does it as well - again he does when he is not hungry. He seems to chew on anything fleshy but it helps him to bring up wind. Are you bf? becasue I am sure my lo just likes the feeling of something fleshy to remind him of his favourite past time!!!

its probably teething, not that the teeth will make an apperance anytime soon but they may be moveing slightly in the gums, getting into position, it should settle after a few days x

My baby does this too.
I've read that it is normal as baby is exploring it's hands and fingers. 'baby's first year' the netmums guide is my bible at the minute.

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
