Easy hydration for pregnant and breastfeeding mums

Aquamamma_Lemon_Box_01 - CopyAn Australian obstetrician has developed a new product to make hydration easier for pregnant and breastfeeding mums.

Aquamamma sachets are available in three flavours, which when mixed in water, make it easier to keep up hydration levels.

The sachets contain 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.

Aquammama is available for purchase from local pharmacies and Priceline stores nationally with 10 x 19.5g sachets at a RRP of $14.99.

    Apologies for the spelling error -...... Dr Ian Tucker Urogynaecologist posted on February 7, 2019 Your comment is awaiting moderation. This article is grossly inaccurate in many aspects. Firstly no-onene needs to drink 2-3litres of water in 24 hours. The normal urine output is 1.5L/24 hours and as long as this is the urine output the person pregnant or otherwise is not dehydrated. The only exception to this is uncontrolled diabetes mellitus or insipidus. Drinking this much water/fluids is bad for the brain heart joints kidneys electrolytes. Food is all fluids milk on cereals teas coffees - no- no-none should drink this much fluid on top of this. The body dictates thirst and maintains the normal hydration. Tea and coffee ARE NOT dehydrating - they have NO diuretic effect. Basically this is absolute nonsense! reply reply
