I can’t sleep unless i’m to the point where i’ll fall asleep in 2 seconds?
Yeah I have this problem and it’s kind of getting into my sleeping schedule plus school.. Is there any cure lol idk.
Melatonin and Valerian helps but you should try some relaxation methods along with that. You can find guided relaxation recordings on Amazon (mp3 downloads cheap like a buck apiece) or libraries often have guided relaxation cds or tapes. They are usually soothing music along with someone talking you through deep breathing and relaxing the muscles in your body. They are extremely effective and after using them for a while, you can do it yourself. Medications are usefull but can only do so much. There’s only so many pills you can pop. The problems with difficulty sleeping come mostly from thinking too much. From not being able to stop thinking about things you need to do or problems you need to handle. The thing is, if you don’t get enough sleep, you can’t handle those things well and you can get very burnt out. If you try the relaxations, it gives you a lifelong tool to help yourself get needed rest.
what do i need to pack for labor and delivery.?
i am a first time mom and i want to know what you took to the hospital and things you found helpful, im due in april
- what items did you need for yourself
-items you took for your baby?
when to buy nursing bras?
(im planing on breastfeeding)
what things do you get from the hospital to take home?
Many women wear the same clothing home that they wore to the hospital as they make you change into a gown when you get there.
I highly recommend an Ipod or MP3 player with your favorite music as well as a playlist of relaxation music.
Bring your own face soap and lotion. The stuff at the hospital always makes my face red and itchy. I prefer one kind of hand cream and would take that as well. Bring something for your lips. They tend to get dry.
Couple of changes of underwear – may or may not need it.
Bring extra batteries for your camera.
Nursing or sleep bra. The link below is to the Medula Sleep nursing bra which seems to be a hospital favorite right now.
What you take home depends on the hospital. My friend just had a baby and other than the formula bag and the hospital socks, she had nothing else to bring home except the baby. Most of the other hospital stuff is throwaway, but you can take the water pitcher and vomit bins – sometimes handy if you don’t have a water pitcher and I’ve used vomit bins for other things. As indicated, some hospitals still provide baby bags – one for breastfeeders and one for formula feeders.
