Mom Tip #2: Breastfeeding Makes you Thirsty

Very thirsty.

I feel like I read this before the baby was born, probably in one of those apps or in a baby book or something but nothing really prepared me for how thirsty I would be. All. The. Time. I mean wake up in the middle of the night and drink a bottle of water thirsty. I can’t leave the house without a bottle of water or six.

My tip for you, buy a nice water bottle (if you don’t have one already) and be prepared to take it with you everywhere you go. Heck, buy yourself two water bottles. Maybe even three. I bought three.

I bought myself a three pack of Contigo bottles from Costco. They are really nice water bottles, I love them. I love them so much I have thought about buying another pack but what would I do with six water bottles. They are $20 for the pack of three.

One of the bottles is actually my husbands but I use the other two. That way one is in the fridge getting cold while I am drinking the other, assuming I actually drink one slow enough to let the other one get cold.
