Sleepy time “tools” can help with a good night’s sleep…for you and the babe. Take 20% off through Saturday, 3/14/15.

Did you know that sleep is one of the most important things when one is looking at overall health and wellness?  Those of us who have been pregnant know that often times, sleep can be elusive.  Just ask one of your pregnant friends about sleep when her aching body and heartburn made the old recliner look like a luxurious bed!  Lack of sleep leads to constant tiredness and affects hormones, which likely influence hunger, cravings and emotions.

As we start a new year, give yourself the gift of sleep.  Make sure your bedroom is dark and cool for sleeping, allow enough time for sleep (easier said than done if living with an early-to-rise toddler or pre-schooler) and make sure to take at least 20 minutes before bed to relax away from electronics such as televisions and computers.

Sleepy Time Tips:
