  • Try to drink at least 1 bottle everytime you pump or nurse.

  • Drink the water when it's not so cold - more room temperature. You will naturally drink more then.

  • Wimsey, thats great. I just figured that out today. Please drink it instead of others, atleast drink enough and then you can reward yourself w/a diff drink. Leave a glass on the counter all the time, so it is temped for drinking easily. It is so necess for BF and supply. But so important all around for health, ie: circulation, digestion, bowels, metabolism, skin.

  • If Its ICE Cold You Burn More Calories :p

    The only way I remember is buying water bottles and having them everywhere. Needless to say I don't remember much LOL

  • Try drinking water instead of soda, tea ect. I drink water with a straw. When I drink with a straw I always drink more.

  • I have a cup of hot cocoa in the morning and 2 cups of hot tea throughout the day. I have a smoothie with breakfast and pomegrante juice with lunch. I carry a 32oz bottle of water with throughout the day (equals 4cups of water). Added it up, it equals an average of 9 cups of fluids a day.

  • Lower your sodium and sugar intake and you will find that water doesn't taste too bad. Your taste buds might be spoiled to high flavored foods and drinks.

  • I can only drink cold cold water. I'm not a water drinker but i try to keep a really big cup like a gas station mug out all the time and when i see what i always remember. I'm 8 months pregnant with my 2nd and i can never remember unless that cup is out. I know it's strange but it's the only thing that works for me.
