Here you go

As an American who doesn't like tea, I will try my best

​

I'm going to assume that 2 servings of SleepyTime Tea is enough to make an adult male from the UK sufficiently sleepy. Using Wikipedia, this translates to 1 bag per 42kg (92.6lb). I'm counting it this way because you made the mistake of saying "all whales in the ocean" and there are a lot of different whales. Using the first few largest whales I could find, we get

  • Blue Whales - 100,000kg (220,000lb) - 17,500
  • Fin Whale - 45,000kg (100,000lb) - 100,000
  • Sperm Whale - 45,000kg (100,000lb) - 375,000
  • Right Whale - 65,000kg (140,000lb) - 15,500
  • Humpback Whale - 30,000kg (60,000lb) - 80,000
  • Bowhead Whale - 90,000kg (200,000lb) - 10,000

    Now by multiplying and adding these estimates, we get a leisurely 2.74325E10 kilograms of whale in our oceans. Divide by 42kg and we get...

    653,154,761.1 bags of SleepyTime Tea.

    Round up to an even 1 billion if you want to use significant figures (probably)

    ​

    Edit: If you decided to buy this tea off of Amazon, it would cost you $342,906,205.

    If the US military wanted to put all of the whales in the world to sleep, they would need to contribute 4.37 hours of their funding.

This is my favorite-- Sunflower Jasmine tea.

I have tons of the empty tins sitting around my house. You can buy it in three sizes-- 120g (~1/4lb), 227g (1/2lb), and 454g (1lb). You can find it through amazon, or if you live near a Chinatown, you can find it in pretty much any grocery store. Roughly, the prize per size tin is $3-4 for the 1/4lb, $5-6 for the 1/2lb, and $10-11 for the 1lb.

Note: The tin comes in two colors, red and yellow. The yellow one is the better one. I don't know what the exact difference is, but that's the general response I got when I searched google.

Here's a review about it.

u/parkinsonslaw 路 6 pointsr/cocktails

Add as much cranberry as you need, theres this flower called a butterfly pea blossom that makes anything you soak them in super super purple. They won't change the flavour but then you'll have a very purple drink with whatever ingredients you want. Just make sure you strain well!

u/zakii 路 6 pointsr/EatCheapAndHealthy

Mate Tea is your friend.

Dirt cheap, hard to burn, and just as much caffeine as coffee. It tastes like a piney green tea.

u/truthislife 路 6 pointsr/Anxiety

I drink the Yogi stress relief tea - it also have lavender in it. It's not nearly as intense as that, but it definitely helps me! If nothing else, I sit down for a few moments and just decompress with a cup of tea. Plus it's yummy and has cute sayings on the tabs at the end of the string.

Good thinking posting here. Another thing you could do for distraction is to get on the IRC webchat here. Distraction is key.

Things I did at the beginning:

  • Went for lots of walks
  • Read for hours here on SD
  • Watched lots of Netflix
  • Kept my hands busy (briefly picked up crocheting at the beginning of my recovery)
  • Exercised
  • Rearranged pretty much everything in my house

    Fridays were always hard for me as they are for many of us. Even before I started drinking alcoholicly, I always had a couple of drinks as a "reward" for working hard all week. If all else fails, just go to bed. Pro-tip for that: Sleepytime tea. Knocks me right out.

    I was fortunate that I wasn't in an environment where there was drinking at home when I quit. I probably would have ended up at a lot of nighttime AA meetings. They are a) a distraction and b) a place where you can be around others that understand (as your roomie obviously does not).

    You can do this. You do not have to drink my friend. :-)

I thought I would chime in here because I have been dealing with your similar issue. I'm 28/f, and have had persistent hormonal acne creep up in the last few years. The bumps seemed to start innocently on my chin, then creeped up all over my cheeks. I seemed to have tried everything with no luck.

NOTE: I haven't been on any form of hormonal birth control or any other medication, so I wouldn't be aware if this would help or hurt.

But, spearmint tea has seriously done wonders! For the last month and a half, I have consistently drank between 2-3 cups a day. No other change in routine/diet. Within 2 weeks I noticed a change. My boyfriend has even told me how significant the improvement is.

http://www.labmuffin.com/spearmint-tea-can-relieve-hormonal-acne/

It is a cheap alternative, which seems to have few side effects (if any). If you do go ahead and try the tea solution, make sure you get tea that doesn't include any other teas mixed in.

The plus side is that you can also grow your own spearmint and have a ready supply.

Best of luck! I wish I took before and after pictures!

Startup an excel spreadsheet and make a budget for yourself. I find that once I have a budget setup I pay even more attention to my money and figure out new ways to save. I have helped my roommate and my boyfriend setup a budget. :o)

The meat market can save you sooo much money and make you more conscious about the items you are buying and motivate you to cook more.

Crockpots are awesome and help you save time during the week. I know you work from home, but ready-made food throughout the week is awesome!

The Magic Bullet or Nutribullet are both great to have in the home for smoothies! Of course you can blend other items in the cups as well.

I have this Himalayan Salt Lamp and I love it. I also have this Himalayan Salt Candle Holder....actually everything I'm linking you is something that I own and love, something I have experience with, or a similar model (the crock pot was a random model) lol


Oh and this tea because it's delicious.

The first few months are hard but I promise it gets better and that you鈥檙e doing an awesome job. Trying to breastfeed is so so hard and demanding and stressful on top of everything else about being a new mom. I struggled with breastfeeding in the beginning and supplemented with formula for a few weeks before my LO got his tongue tie fixed (we didn鈥檛 realize it at first that that was the reason). I know it鈥檚 easier said than done, trust me, but try not to feel guilty about supplementing. If you are anything like me, I was determined to be successful at breastfeeding so I tried everything. I was pumping every few hours as well as putting LO on the boob so that I would keep producing. It was a struggle. If you haven鈥檛 yet, please try lactation cookies and mothers tea. I will link both. The cookies are actually really good and I swear both of those things helped me produce enough milk. Eventually, I was able to provide for my LO with just breast milk. It gets SO much easier but if it doesn鈥檛 work out, it doesn鈥檛 work out. The most important thing you can do is focus on your child and give her whatever she needs, be it formula or breast milk.

I'm so sorry to hear about your mom's situation. As a fellow TBI sufferer who still deals with all the associated bullshit on a daily basis, and as a fellow son of a mother with less-than-ideal mental/cognitive health, my heart goes out to you both. Biiiiig post coming up. I know you frequent /r/nootropics and similar subs so sorry if I'm just telling you stuff you already know.

It goes without saying that it would be ideal if you could get her to consult a specialist about her condition, preferably a good neurologist and psychiatrist who can work together to develop a medication, supplementation, diet, exercise, general lifestyle etc. regimen tailored specifically to her. If you have the means to do so, make it happen.

First things first, it would obviously be incredibly beneficial if you could convince her to cut out or drastically reduce her alcohol consumption. It sounds likely that she's self-medicating for depression related to her head injury and its consequences (I was there for a long time), so you might see about getting her onto a prescribed antidepressant. (Side note: it is crucial that she see a good psychiatrist to discuss taking any prescription psychiatric medication. Despite being legally allowed to prescribed many potent psychoactive drugs, GP's simply do not have the expertise necessary to make a good diagnosis and prescribe accordingly. Chances are if you ask for an antidepressant they'll just give you whatever a major pharma company shill most recently gave them samples of. Speaking from experience.) If you don't want to bring in the "big guns" so to speak just yet, then bacopa monnieri might be a good place to start. Very mild, very well tolerated, with a host of nootropic benefits to boot - it's known to improve memory significantly after about 3 months of supplementation. I started taking it about a month ago and for me personally it's been amazingly helpful; I can't wait for the memory enhancement to kick in. If it keeps on working like it has been, I don't think I'll ever stop taking it.

If you don't think she'll ever be willing to go completely sober, then make sure she's minimizing the harmful effects of alcohol with MisterYouAreSoDumb's damage/hangover prevention stack. (mind that NAC should always be taken before drinking, not during or after.)

I recommend trying to get her to replace alcohol with something less harmful, maybe every second drinking day or something at first. The obvious recommendation is marijuana, though as you're undoubtedly aware there are a ton of possible downsides to weed use as well. In the long run though, from a cognitive health point of view, it's far safer. If you're able to, get a few strains with different cannabinoid profiles for her to try so she can decide what she likes best - a high CBD/low THC strain (typically indicas) is probably more similar to alcohol than high THC, though it's still very different. If you decide to go with weed, make sure she's actively endeavouring to replace alcohol with it, rather than just adding it to her usual booze usage. Make edibles, extracts, or get her a vape if smoking doesn't appeal to her.

Then there's Kava. Its effects are probably a little closer to alcohol's than weed (though again, quite different) and it's much easier to get your hands on as it's legal pretty much everywhere (and easy enough to get through customs if you're somewhere lame like Australia). A good, affordable "beginner's" kava that she can try to see if she likes the effects is Yogi Tea's Stress Relief Tea
, as it's heavily flavoured and thus masks the acquired taste/feeling of kava pretty well. To really get a "drunk" feeling from it though, you may need to use 3 or 4 bags. Brew it in coconut milk or half water/half coconut cream to make it especially tasty. Or, if she's willing to tolerate the taste, go straight for a high quality source like Hawaiian Kava and brew it traditionally. Just make sure that she doesn't have any alcohol in her system whenever she uses it, as apparently that's a dangerous combo.

Also, if she does decide to quit booze at any point, make sure she does so safely.

Now, as for things to take... I'm still trying to perfect a regimen myself.

Over on the NeuroTalk forum, home to one of the largest online community of concussion and TBI sufferers, the recommended stack, as put together by the granddaddy of the forum, Mark of Idaho, is as follows:

>B-12 (500 to 1000 mcgs daily)
a B-50 complex, for all the other B's so you get a good balance of B's
a high potency multi-vitamin like GNC Mega Women/Men. Centrum and One a Day are too weak.
Niacin, 200 to 500 mgs
Some extra anti-oxidants, Vit C and Vit E
D3, plenty of this, 1000 to 5000 iu's
Omega 3 fish oil, with a proper balance of Omega 6 and 9
Calcium with magnesium, 500 mgs per day
I also have added
Curcumin (pricy but worth it) 950 mgs daily This is a Turmeric extract
DHEA, 25 mgs , a hormone that helps the body balance the other hormones, If your skin gets oily try 1/2 of a 25 mgs tablet. I only take a half of a tablet.
a Costco High Energy multipack (7 pieces) in place of the multi-vitamin
I have recently added:
Cayenne capsules
Resveratrol, it is supposed to help the Omega 3 fish oil work better
Garlic capsules for cholesterol
L-theanine for GABA regulation

I don't know that it's perfect but it's probably a good place to start. I think he might be going overboard with the amount of B vitamins in there... As long as she's taking the full dosage of a good multivitamin like Source Naturals Life Force (gets pretty pricey at 4 capsules a day, my approach is to take half the recommended dose and then add in a sensibly-dosed B complex. Any complex that uses methylfolate instead of folic acid should be of good quality.) she should be all set for B vitamins. Curcumin to reduce any residual inflammation is probably a good idea too - it's pretty pricey though. Make sure to get pills with added piperine, and I've seen it recommended that you take it with a fat source as well.

This thread, though more specifically targeted at treating a brain injury immediately after it's happened, is a great resource. Anything that's good for the immediate effects of a brain injury is probably going to be beneficial in the long term as well.

Oh! Also, the uridine stack. I don't recall the exact theory behind it, but it gets a lot of buzz as a means of preventing/reducing dementia/alzheimer's/general cognitive aging, so much so that somebody turned it into a drink which they now make a buttload of money from.

I'm super tired so I'm gonna just wrap this up neatly now... Might come back to edit it, but you're probably sick of reading crap from me as it is! For your mom, neurogenesis is king now, pretty much. Help her give her brain what it needs to heal and grow, and keep it away from things that hinder or harm these processes (booze, stress, poor diet/lifestyle, etc.). Lion's Mane is a good start, but I'd highly recommend looking into Cerebrolysin (requires injection), possibly P21 (like a refined Cerebrolysin, but very new to the market, so kinda risky), Semax (typically injected but if you send an email to [email protected] and ask nicely they'll be able to hook you up with a nasal spray), Noopept (should be taken sublingually), piracetam (has been studied fairly extensively for post-TBI, seems quite beneficial), NSI-189, etc. Supplement-wise, this kind of stuff is probably going to be the most beneficial for your mom in the long run. I recommend checking out this post by user Rior on Longecity about recovering from brain damage. It's a thread about MDMA-related damage, but his advice is quite general and is based on his own experience with recovering from multiple concussions.

Whew! Definitely wasn't planning to write that much, haha. Really hope I've been of some help man. Best of luck to you and your mom.

I purchased Dandy Blend for my husband because he breaks out when he has caffeine. It tastes like coffee and even gives you an energy boost. We found that second part out when he tried to make a mocha shake right before bed and started having trouble sleeping :-/ Even so, during the day it works well. We've also tried ginseng tea for focus (Panera also used to have smoothies with ginseng that worked well, but they appear to have removed the ginseng).

u/potatoaster 路 3 pointsr/tea

People use all sorts of tea to make pearl milk tea. I believe the canonical tea is cheap Ceylon, but a lot of places use even cheaper Assam instead. Some people add a second tea, like high-mountain oolong, to add complexity. In HK, they often add ripe pu'er. I've also seen many people recommend Golden Sail lychee black tea and Sunflower jasmine green tea, which are cheap Chinese supermarket brands.

Thai tea is usually Ceylon with condensed milk, food coloring, and often star anise (and sometimes clove, cardamom, vanilla). The leading brand is Number One. That's what your favorite restaurant probably uses. Black sugar PMT was made famous by the Tiger Sugar chain. I've tried it, and tbh I prefer the cleaner flavor of sucrose- or fructose-sweetened PMT.

I don't know how to make cheese foam, but here's my recipe for Taiwanese milk tea:

In 1 c of boiled water, steep 2 teabags of Ceylon for 15 min. Add 1/8 c each sugar and creamer. Chill completely. Shake before serving to improve the texture. Serve with pearls, either the instant ones or homemade ones with tapioca starch and black/red/brown sugar.

u/VocalMentor 路 2 pointsr/mildlybrokenvoice

Very sorry for your suffering. As a fellow singer, I have empathy and sympathy. Let's get you over this, shall we?

The problem you're describing is caused by inflammation of your vocal anatomy. How to reduce that inflammation? --We focus on what we're doing here and this will encourage the body to heal, so your voice will be fine again.

Number One: You must calm your nerves. How? -- With this:

https://www.vocalmentor.com/your-secret-weapon-against-nervousness-the-4-7-8-breath-exercise/

2. You must drink at least 100 ounces per day of clean, unflavored WATER. You must get at least 7-8 hours' sleep in every 24 hours. The voice loves sleep. So sleep more than 8 hours. Make arrangements so you can do that. Sleeping alone goes a long way toward reducing inflammation of the vocal anatomy.

(I'm getting to the reflux, so please hang in there.)

3. You must try an herbal tea, very powerful for reducing inflammation; the herb is called yerba mat茅:

https://www.amazon.com/Guayaki-Traditional-Organic-Mate-225g/dp/B0027CNY7U/ref=sr_1_4?gclid=Cj0KCQjw_absBRD1ARIsAO4_D3uzYfVwSlutxxej2SzisFWxM0kkyRI235QmXq5uRj_OhpxHSDtn0oMaAuGoEALw_wcB&hvadid=241929365921&hvdev=c&hvlocphy=9014244&hvnetw=g&hvpos=1t3&hvqmt=e&hvrand=9530439865077176198&hvtargid=kwd-54991933&hydadcr=24665_10401006&keywords=yerba+mate&qid=1569314665&s=gateway&sr=8-4 .

It will reduce the inflammation.

4. Excellent remedy to reduce inflammation: Aloe Vera GEL. Not the juice, the GEL. Get this brand, the finest one:

https://lilyofthedesert.com/product/aloe-gels/

Drink 3 ounces aloe vera GEL along with each meal you're eating.

5. You must keep your vocal anatomy MOIST. How? --With these lozenges:

https://www.thayers.com/shop-thayers/healthcare-remedies/tangerine-rosehips-slippery-elm-lozenges-jar/

(They have a plain flavor, cherry flavor, and they have sugar-free, if you don't want the tangerine flavor--no problem.)

If you prefer to drink tea, please use this one, with active ingredient, slippery elm:

https://www.traditionalmedicinals.com/ .

Add honey to your tea, as this will be soothing to your throat.

HOW TO BANISH REFLUX:

https://www.vocalmentor.com/resource-guide-preventing-acid-reflux/

https://www.vocalmentor.com/how-does-reflux-affects-the-singing-voice/

SUPERFOODS FOR SINGERS:

https://www.vocalmentor.com/superfoods-for-singers/

If you are smoking (anything), you must stop. Try one of those over-the-counter gadgets/remedies for helping break the addiction to nicotine. Also, do not be in any proximity to other people, who are smoking (anything).

The intense heat alone, from the smoke, sears the fragile mucosal lining of the vocal anatomy. You NEED that mucosal lining intact, to protect your voice in general. That mucosal lining is so crucial. When it gets dried out, the body produces thick mucus, as a defense. Singing around thick mucus is a miserable experience. How to prevent this? ---Keep that mucosal lining intact! How to do that? ---Keep your vocal anatomy MOIST, by drinking your water, using your lozenges, getting your sleep, also increase foods rich in vitamin C, as this will fortify the mucosal lining. (Thin surface layer, on top of various organs and tissues, all throughout the respiratory system: this is what I mean by "mucosal lining.") We sing on the thin edges of our vocal folds, which means we sing on that mucosal lining. You NEED that working, intact, doing its thing. One way it protects your vocal anatomy is by warding off virus germs and allergens, as best it can.

Remember, the voice loves sleep. Get more than 8 hours if you possibly can. Make arrangements so you can sleep longer. This will help tremendously, to encourage the healing.

I've done it with gunpowder, various white teas (bai mu dan, silver needle), jasmine greens. My everyday tea is this jasmine tea from the grocery store and it works well. I put in much less leaf than I would if I were steeping with a filter.

I don't think it would work well for tiny leafed teas like sencha or genmaicha, but haven't tried it.

Edit: I thought What-Cha's Kenyan silver needle took really well to grandpa style yesterday. Basically, try it with any and all teas! Worse comes to worse, you can strain it into another cup using a fork or spoon or something.

>One special note for those of you who are trying to lower your triglycerides; fruit raises triglycerides in sensitive people and needs to be severely limited 鈥 at least for several weeks 鈥 in people trying to lower triglycerides.7 Fruit (natural, dried, and as juice) is made of simple sugars and the primary sugar is fructose.

>....

>It may be especially important to reduce the intake of the simple sugar fructose. Fructose has an especially potent effect on de novo lipogenesis; causing insulin resistance, raising glucose, insulin, and triglycerides, and causing hypertension in animal models.1,13 Fructose probably makes a much greater contribution to human obesity than does any other sugar.13

Now, maybe your doctor is correct and you should limit fruit. I ordinarily think fruit is great (so does Greger), but McDougall obviously will dispense the advice to limit it, especially juice and dried fruit first.

In the meantime, if you want to lower your blood pressure, try Hibiscus tea. I buy it in bulk on amazon.

Here the Dr Greger video on the stuff. He cautions not to drink more than a quart a day and with a straw to protect the teeth from the acidic effects.

Tazo Rest is pretty good and will knock you out. Yogi Tea's Kava blend is pretty good too. Personally, I also do really like just straight chamomile, especially if it's loose leaf - tends to have more flavor than the bagged version. Mint is great as well - you can get dried mint, but fresh is great, too. I keep a mint plant in my apartment and occasionally make tea with a few freshly cut sprigs. (It also makes great mint juleps and mojitos...)

u/The_Broad 路 2 pointsr/breastfeeding

I've heard really good things about fenugreek, but don't know if you'd get too much of a boost from that. I have felt a boost with raspberry leaf tea but it can also dehydrate you a bit, so it can be a trade off.

Also, especially with number one, I could not pump much of anything without looking at pictures of her, listening to recordings of her garble noises, and/or very actively trying to imagine the feeling of her nursing. I just wouldn't get any milk. So, maybe try that sort of thing if you haven't?

If I were in your position, I would not supplement with formula. I would consider cutting my milk with cow's milk to make it last the last month until she can have straight up cow's milk. But when doing that one would need to be incredibly vigilant about her reaction, if there were any. Is she gassy/more fussy? Is she having trouble digesting it/yucky poop? Is she spitting up more? Etc.

Sorry that your time nursing is finishing up sooner then you'd like. Good luck.

Oh yes, chamomile tea is great. It's actually a popular sleep aid and is non-caffeinated as well, so no surprise that it makes you sleepy!

Avoid added sugars. You want your body burning lean and clean, and sugar is just empty calories with no nutritional benefit. Read the ingredients: does it contain high fructose corn syrup? Read the nutritional facts: is the "added sugars" entry in the double digits? If the answer to either of these questions is "yes," just don't. Reducing sugar consumption is the place to start.

I could say, if it helps you get through the day, I could say, maybe just a little to treat yourself. This regimen is goal oriented, this is not a walk in the park, no half measures. You can either do the work and reach your goals or you can waste your time deluding yourself that you and you alone are able to defeat basic chemistry and biology and spin your wheels wondering why nothing is working. Increasing sugar intake leads to body weight gain, and sugar reduction leads to body weight loss, flat out.

You know what I love? Herbal tea! I buy bulk loose hibiscus, that shit's delicious and healthy! I drink it hot, people tell me they love it cold, you really can't go wrong! I make another blend, peppermint, raspberry leaf, and chamomile. Also, fucking delicious! And I don't add a single thing to it, no sugar no dairy, just hot water and plants.

Is it possible you can try iced coffee or drink cold brew coffee? The cold brew is less acidic and more tolerable to drink black, its actually a bit sweeter and still zero calories if you drink it black.

Green tea has less than 200mg caffeine and youll end up drinking more than a cup to get the same affect as 1 cup of coffee.

I personally dont like red bull either i hate the taste.
If you really want to forgo coffee than maybe try this:
Guayaki Yerba Mate Organic Tea, 25-Count, 2.6oz https://www.amazon.com/dp/B008234L0C/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_o4bIxbZNWBPX1

It has almost as much caffeine as coffee depending on the product you pick.

Subtle calming effect, not to the point of being anywhere close to a 'buzz' or intoxication, but I've found its a perfect way to wind down at night.

Traditional Medicinals is a good brand. I find the taste to be pretty mild and it's nice with honey. I also sometimes steep another tea with it, so I might add a green tea bag for the last 1-2 minutes of the spearmint tea's steeping time or a rooibos or honeybush tea bag for 5 minutes or so.

u/3000Flurbos 路 1 pointr/bjj

If you're struggling to get 8 hours a night, you can focus on deepening the sleep you do get instead of sleeping longer.


  • Black out your room at night. This is the biggest one for me. I have cheap blackout shades and I use electrical tape to cover internet routers, smoke alarms - anything that flashes. Get your room dark enough that you can't see your hand in front of your face. Even a little light will fuck with your melatonin production and compromise your sleep quality.


  • If you use electronics at night, download f.lux. It's a free program that removes blue light from your monitor after the sun sets. Your phone should have night mode under settings; turn that on as well. Light in the blue spectrum is the biggest melatonin disruptor.


  • Take 400 mg of magnesium citrate or magnesium glycinate before bed. It eases stress and causes a dramatic increase in sleep quality. Plus, a good percentage of the population is deficient in magnesium, so you could probably use a little extra anyway. If you go for magnesium citrate, start at 200 mg and move up to 400 mg over the course of a couple days. Too much at once will make you shit your pants. Glycinate doesn't have that issue, but isn't quite as bioavailable.


  • Take 300 mcg of melatonin right before bed. Melatonin is a hormone your body uses to encourage deep sleep, and taking it in pill form will knock you right out. It's prescription in the UK, over-the-counter in the US. Most doses are far too high (2-10 mg), and can impair your natural melatonin production if you take them regularly without a break. Stick with 300mcg (linked above); it's the minimum effective dose and won't mess with your hormones long-term.

  • I also drink kava tea on nights when I really can't sleep. It's more for stress relief/anxiety than for sleep, but if you find you have trouble winding down at night it can be a big help. Don't drink alcohol alongside kava; the active compounds, kavalactones, bind to the same brain receptors that alcohol does, meaning the effects of the two stack.

  • Don't take sleeping pills if you can avoid them. I'm not a doctor, and I'm not saying you should ignore your doctor, but sleeping pills don't actually put you into stage 3 and stage 4 sleep (the deep, restorative sleep your brain needs). They can also cause a lot of neurological side effects.

I posted a similar question on here for a gift for my boyfriend, and I got a lot of great responses so I decided to make a "panic box" for him with lots of different ideas.

He is big on scents for soothing, so I got him a relaxation blend and frankincense essential oils, as well as his favorite incense.

He is also very responsive to tea, so I got him this pregnancy tea. I know that seems weird, but it was one of the few on Amazon that had chamomile and oatstraw. Although I didn't really expect them to work, I also got him stress mints, calm drops, and moon drops in hopes that having something to suck on might calm him down if some minor anxiety pops up.

As for books, after reviewing this thread here, I got him this anxiety memoir since he seems to benefit from reading other people's stories (shout out to this subreddit! Thanks guys!), as well as this workbook.

Finally, I got him a panic pete to give him something to hold and squeeze when he was anxious. Out of all the things I got him, he loved panic pete the best!

As a final, personal touch, I printed out this article which he loved reading when he is anxious, and included some of the calming mantras I found here.

Hope at least some of this helps!

Not entering this contest but I still want to add my suggestions for your birthday gift.

It's all about atmosphere and ambiance. Creating a serene environment conducive to relaxation and reflection. It seems that you are a working mom, a wife and probably wear many more stressful hats in your life. That being said, picture this: dinner is cooked, little one's in bed the house is quiet and there you are in your favorite cozy spot wrapped with this Purple Plush Throw. Your cozy spot is lined with this super duper massage cushion and your feet resting on this shiatsu massager encased in these fluffy purple socks. On a nearby table you have the soothing aromatic scent of lavender emitting from this diffuser. Relaxed and soothed you find that you are a bit restless despite all your efforts, so out comes the coloring book. Using your 50 count pack of colors you sit and color for a while in blissful peace. Unwinding for a few moments and allowing the hustle and bustle of the day to pass away. Maybe you even indulge a bit with a cup of tea as you nosh on these delicious butter cookies. After your relaxing massages, your coloring session and bedtime snack, it is time to slip off to bed.

This is what I would give to you: the gift of moments spent each day exclusively designed to recharge, relax and refocus before the new day dawns. The day dawns and you are refreshed and ready to tackle all that may come.

I suffer horribly from insomnia every time I have "quit". I use Sleepytime Extra. It has valerian in it which is usually understood to help people fall asleep a little faster and stay asleep. It's not like taking an Ambien, it won't knock you out, but it's helped me through the tough four or five nights of brutal insomnia before my natural rhythm kicks back in. You might want to give it a try. I don't have much for the rest of your side effects, but I do know the sweaty palms is your body's way of getting rid of the THC and other cannabis related toxins stored in your fat. I'm sure it smells bad, too. Afaik, there's nothing you can do for that, besides wear gloves, but it's an important step and a good sign.

Look up some tricks to keep supply up if you are exclusively pumping (if nursing is an option though do it as often as you can). I've been pumping 80% of the time since my daughter was born because of issues like you listed and EPing for the last two weeks after getting a bad friction blister and then mastitis. What's helped my supply:

-Pumping every three hours, every four overnight if she'll let me. Sometimes I need to get creative if she's awake and fussy and prop her in a boppy next to me, hold a bottle for her while I'm in the hands free pumping bra. Seems so silly to pump while bottle feeding her but it's just too painful to nurse sometimes!

-Pressing the let down button on the pump several times. Saw this from another redditor, and it does work. I usually wait until I no longer see streams of milk coming out, hit the let down button and increase suction a bit and get a second burst.

-Boob massage. If you don't have a hands free pumping bra yet get one, it's one of the best purchases I've made. I use this one. I've eaten most of my postpartum meals while pumping in this thing. ;) While my hands are free I can also massage my breasts, pushing slowly and firmly toward the nipple or in some cases just squeezing and holding to get more milk out. Over time I've noticed which ducts on each breast are "good performers" and benefit from being massaged.

-Power pumping sessions. Also picked up on this forum, every few days when my husband can watch the baby for an hour I'll do 20 mins pumping, 10 mins rest, 10 mins pumping, 10 mins rest, 10 mins pumping to simulate cluster feeding. Word of warning, check your nips for trauma during the breaks and don't overdo the suction. It really helped my supply (probably more than any other single technique) but the last time I did it I got a nasty friction blister because I didn't notice the flange was off center which didn't heal well and led to a case of mastitis.

-Mother's Milk tea I tried Milkmaid tea first, and then Mommy Knows Best lactation supplement, but this is more effective for me than both of those together. Start with just a cup or two a day as it can be seriously strong and lead to engorgement.

Good luck! I don't wish exclusively pumping on anyone as it's a pain in the butt, but I'm like you with one breastfeeding problem after another. I'm currently considering (for the millionth time) giving up because my mastitis was awful and serious and tanked my supply, but I keep reading the health benefits of making it to six months and am hoping to figure something out. This sub is great inspiration!
