    Try Berocca??? Just kidding. Perhaps a fresh juice (eg: beetroot, carrot, pineapple) could help as a mid-morning pick me up. In my experience, looking after a toddler can be exhausting. I found when I returned to work, I had more energy. Strange but true. All the best

    Im returning to work 3 days a week in may - I'm looking forward to it as I think I need it and DS will be fine.

    Also I have more energy this week! I have the house back to myself now as my tenant has now moved out - much better for me! Also have cut out my usual glass of wine in the evening... I think there's something in alcohol that doesn't really agree with me as I feel so much better!

    I was feeling like this, and was at my most tired around 5pm when I really needed to be starting dinner preparations. I found taking an iron supplement has helped.

    I have to say I probably get tired maybe twice a week with my 20 month old. She's a great sleeper (12 hrs overnight and 2.5 hr nap during the day). DH gets home at 4pm everyday and takes over everything and I think that makes a huge difference. When he goes away for work it's this time (4-5pm) that I would get really tired.

    My nearly 2,5 year old is highly strung and active. Every single morning we're out and about as well, trying to wear him out so he can have a nap.
    I can not sleep during the day as his naptime is my cleaning time. Im a single mum, so dont have anyone at night to help out either.
    You actually get more sleep than I do and Im always tired as well.
    I started taking iron tablets and multivitamin capsules and I have been feeling quite a lot better.
    So definitely have a chat with your pharmacist. If that doesn't work, maybe have a chat with your GP to see if there are any other physical (maybe even mental like mild depression) problems.

    Not really. I eat really well. Perhaps you should try a more protein filled breakfast. Meat and nuts, or a healthy smoothie. I find my fat burner walk before breakfast increases my energy ten fold.

    Definitely try eating oats in the morning - porridge is sooooo good
    Increase iron intake, start a multivitamin and be in bed no later than nine. All work for me.
    Oh and no alcohol, as it interferes with sleep.
