For those who have done treasure baskets for your lo, what things did your lo enjoy the most? I am putting one together for Hannah (6 months), and am looking for some inspiration!

Hi, i did a post about treasure baskets a couple of weeks ago and got loads of ideas.
My lo's favourites are a metal whisk, a natural exfoliating brush/pumice, holographic foil paper, space blanket and silk scarves.
Other things we have in it are pebbles in a net bag, a fir cone, a wooden bangle, sandpaper, a lemon, a small children's cake tin, rolling pin, pastry brush, dolly peg, demister pad, handknitted bootees, velvet bag, small purse, wooden spoon and spatula, juggling balls and a small ring-bound notebook.
I am also looking for shells, a plug and chain, bells, a sponge, bone shoe horn, old CD, egg cup and tea strainer. Hope this helps.
I LOVE treasure baskets, possibly more than my lo does at the mo lol. xx

Joseph's faves are his plug and chain, metal dog bowl and wooden spoons and spatulas (which he uses to beat the dog bowl like a drum with a great big smile of satisfaction on his face!) He plays with his treasure basket more than all his other toys, really, he loves it! It also has a natural sponge, wooden egg (ebay), flannel,holographic wrapping paper, tea strainer, rugby stress ball (from oh) and we just keep adding to it really. HTH xx

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
