  • You need more calories when you're breastfeeding and it is 4 am and I am currently munching on some fig newtons. =) If you can't fall back asleep after eating, try something like cheese, turkey or banana...all have sleep inducing qualities. Drink some chamomile or mint tea with it...hopefully that'll help relax you back to sleep.
