9 Tips for Moms:

  • Is your little one keeping you up crying and fussing for an hour or more at a time? Try 5-10 drops of Infant Tummy-Aid to sooth their tummy and help them (and you) relax.

  • While nursing, try limiting spicy foods and broccoli, cabbage and cauliflower intake. These can be more difficult on your newborns tummy and digestive system.

  • Date Night: Finding that you don't have as much time as you used to for visiting with your husband? Set one night a week as "Date Night" and have a babysitter lined up. Go out (even if just for a walk) and spend some quality time together - just the 2 of you.

  • Baby waking up soaked in the wee hours of the morning? Try a diaper one size larger than you usually use during the day for bedtime.

  • If you are struggling with your milk supply, try to get a daily nap, increase your calcium intake and drink plenty of water.

  • A good night of sleep becomes a distant memory for many new and expecting moms. Try taking Herbal Calcium at night and give it to your little ones over 6 months to encourage sleeping all night.

  • Trying to find time for a nap? Try sleeping when your baby sleeps.

  • Ask for help, while mothering is wonderful, it is taxing on your body and emotions. Create space for simple things you enjoy to refresh yourself once a month. You'll be a better mom for it! Remember to Laugh and enjoy the moments - they go by quickly!

  • You don't have to be a perfect mom to have a happy baby, so don't be too hard on yourself.
