View Full Version : Valerian .
I'm breastfeeding my 16 weeks old Baby and I have a lot of trouble to sleep at night .
Is it possible to take some Valerian while I'm breastfeeding ?
Thank you for your answer .
Whatever you take could potentially affect your baby. Herbal remedies arent all well- tested in regards to breastfeeding.
There may be a medical reason why you are unable to sleep when your baby is actually sleeping - for instance, some postnatal depression symptoms, or are you under some extra stress that is preventing you from relaxing?
It would be best to discuss your options with a health practitioner such as your GP and to look at natural means of helping you sleep- a walk in the sunshine in the afternoon to increase endorphins, a warm milk drink before bed; cutting out caffeine from your diet -at least after 3pm; listening to a relaxation CD or doing some gentle yoga or - all of the above!
