Easy hydration for pregnant and breastfeeding mums
An Australian obstetrician has developed a new product to make hydration easier for pregnant and breastfeeding mums.
During pregnancy and breastfeeding, women are advised to consume 2.3 to 3 litres of water per day to prevent dehydration, but while most know it is important to keep hydrated, they struggle to drink only water.
Aquamamma sachets are available in three flavours, which when mixed in water, make it easier to keep up healthy hydration levels.
The sachets contains added folic acid, but are low in sugar, low in sodium, low in calories, and only contain natural colours and flavours.
Leading lactation consultant and author, Lynne Hall said many mums would appreciate a healthy and convenient alternative to water.
“Keeping hydrated is important for everyone, but especially for women who breastfeed, so I encourage them to keep plenty of water next to them each time they breastfeed,” she said.
“Tea, coffee and soft drinks can be dehydrating while an ice cold glass or bottle of aquamamma is a low sugar, caffeine free alternative to water anytime of the day or night.”
Aquammama is available for purchase from local pharmacies and Priceline stores nationally with 10 x 19.5g sachets at a RRP of $14.99.
