Energy booster - 8 month old daughter

What do you use to give you an energy boost ? I am a single mother - my daughter still wakes up a few times in the night then is awake for the day at 6:30. I eat a healthy breakfast, we play, I exercise then take a shower. Then I have work and then home and then school - I dont get home until 9pm. I am always sooo exhausted. Does anyone have anything besides eating well and exercise (because I do both) to boost energy ? A certain drink or food ? I am still breastfeeding so I don't think I can drink energy drinks ? Or can I ?

  • I don't know what to tell you. You just have a really full plate. If it were me, I suppose I'd work on getting your baby to sleep through the night. That will make a world of difference!

  • Are you co-sleeping? You will get more sleep that way. I just started taking ginseng and it seems t help a bit but I'm not sure about the safety of it while breastfeeding. BTW, that is awesome that you are still nursing after working and going to school! Good job, mama!
