Re: sleep aids
Have you tried chamomile tea? It always makes me pee, so sometimes I sleep less from getting up so much! It is breastfeeding-safe from what I've read. Some people even think what's left in your breastmilk can help calm babies and help them sleep. I haven't taken it since my baby was born because I was afraid I'd be too sleepy. It's hard to have something that knocks you out when you have a baby waking up. But if you're hurting, something gentle like the tea, or yoga, meditation, or self-hypnosis (Glenn Harrold is good) might help.
