i used aptamil with tegan as i found that it suited her better than the others and plan to use it this time when i stop bf at 6 months. but you may want to have a couple of different types in as your little girl may not like it xx

With Liam I tried to BF but it really hurt and the nurses suggested nipple guards but it still hurt and it got to the point where my nipples were bleeding and Liam was crying he was so hungry so the nurses took him off me and started him on Cow and Gate as thats what they used at the hospital. Of course there are quite a few milks now and in those days it was either Cow and Gate or SMA.
I would speak to your Midwife who will be able to advise you as if you get stocked up on different milk and its not the one they start the baby on at the hospital they dont like you to chop and change milks so unless the baby isnt happy its a case of start as you mean to go on. If I were you I would stock up on milk when you know what milk agrees with her as it is so expensive.

I used aptamil with Neve - we never had any problems with it and it was recommended by my midwife as a good choice.

i used cow and gate premium with my first two and they were fine with it so i will probably use it this time aswell xx xx

I guess it really is personal choice really. I wont get different ones think I will just get a small tub of which ever one I pick so that it's at home rready for when we get home in case I can't BF for any reason.
This has helped loads ladies thank you.

aptimil is the closest tpo breastmilk hun with similar lcp's and prebiotics so id say thats a good choice although up to the individual 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
