I use chamomile tea which is a great naturally relaxing herb. Sometimes I'll add a few drops of Valerian tincture, but if you're nursing I'm not sure you'd want to do that.
Avoid using the computer or watching t.v. for at least an hour before you go to sleep...instead do something relaxing like light reading, listening to relaxing music, stretching, or taking a warm bath or shower.
Avoid caffeine or eating anything heavy (or spicy) for at least a few hours before bedtime. However foods high in tryptophan (which help you sleep) can be eaten in moderation before bed. This includes bananas, turkey, yogurt, almonds and figs. I hope this helps a little. :)
