(psst, read to the end to get a gift!)
Keep a water bottle handy
This might seem like a no-brainer, but it's easy to forget to take a sip when you're focused on feeding or caring for your little one. I always make sure to have a water bottle within arm's reach so I can easily take a sip whenever I start to feel thirsty.
Eat hydrating foods
Sure, water is important for hydration, but did you know that certain foods can also help you stay hydrated? Foods like watermelon, cucumbers, and strawberries are all high in water content and can help you replenish fluids.
Keep water interesting
Let's face it, sometimes water can get a little boring. To keep things interesting, try adding a squeeze of lemon or lime, or infuse your water with fruits or herbs. You can also try drinking flavoured water or coconut water for a change of pace.
Plan rewards for yourself
Breastfeeding can be a demanding task, so it's important to take breaks and treat yourself. Plan little rewards for yourself, like a cold glass of water or a refreshing smoothie, to help you stay hydrated and motivated.
Set breaks to hydrate
Make a conscious effort to take breaks to hydrate throughout the day. Set an alarm on your phone or use a reminder app to remind you to take a sip every hour or so. This will help you stay on top of your hydration game.
Use hydration powders
If you're having a tough time getting in enough fluids, consider using hydration powders. They can be mixed with water and provide a quick boost of hydration when you need it most. Try to pick a clean, tasty a high quality powder - it can make a big difference in how you feel. (Psst...here's our fave!)
