    Maybe Baby Question

    I have a question for Maybe Baby users.

    How much spit/saliva do you use on the microscope? Only a thin layer or quite a bit & wait for it too dry?

    I have only just got one & I don't seem to see anything (I know it is too early to see ferning or even partial ferning).

    The instructions don't seem to tell you how much spit/saliva should be used.

    Thanks in advance.

    Hi Nikki

    When I used one, I put a decent layer of spit on the slide and waited for it to dry.

    If there wasn't enough there it just looked like a greasy smear!!

    Make sure you have no bubbles there either!!

    Best of luck!

    Hi Nikki,

    I would put enough on so it covers the microscope completely but not too much as it wouldnt dry.

    I usually would wait about 10 mins and it would be can tell whens it dry if there no more wetness on the scope.

    It took me a few goes to get it right and i started to see ferning about 2 weeks after first using it.

    Good luck

    Hi Kelli,

    I haven't started to use it yet.

    I will start tomorrow morning, I just have to remind myself to do it before I have my morning coffee.

    I had great success using the Maybe Baby microscope (BFP) and got tips from the girls here. A generous layer of saliva is needed (first thing in the morning) and then leave for as long as possible. I used to go and have a shower and try to give it around 30 mins to dry. Your results will be so much better.

    Good Luck!
