Awesome mom and wife and passionate about random things in life (yes I just rhymed :)

As a breastfeeding mama, there aren’t many vices that I can have to help ease stress ... maybe a glass of wine here or there (but let’s be honest, it would take 5 glasses of wine to totally chill the F out and I can’t b-feed after 5 glasses of wine); a workout (hahaha); a dip in the hot tub (if someone else can watch the little one!) ... you get my drift. However, I have found something that both INSTANTLY calms my nerves, puts me in a state of nirvana AND is beneficial for both myself and my baby. 

Hello Natural Calm Magnesium Anti-Stress powder! You can find this bad-boy at most health food stores like Whole Foods, or on Amazon (via the link above). They come in a couple different flavors (like Raspberry-Lemon, Orange or Cherry) if you don’t like the non-flavored version (although I actually prefer the non-flavored).

Let me tell you, all you need is 1/2 a teaspoon of this mixed in your ice water and you will immediately feel the effects of calm take over your body. The suggested dose is 2 teaspoons split up throughout the day. As I type I am drinking 1 tsp in my water. I haven’t tried 2 teaspoons all at once because I’m afraid I would become catatonic. This stuff is amazing AND all-natural. And guess what? It’s actually recommended for breastfeeding mamas. Check this Kelly Mom article out and another related article.

If you get around to trying it, let me know what you think!

And of course, these are all my own un-compensated thoughts/opinions. :)
