Extra! Extra! Sleepytime Tea

After dealing with my baby’s sleep issues (or should I say, her apparent aversion to a good night's sleep), I developed a few of my own. Mostly, I’ve become a light sleeper. My husband’s snoring often pulls me from my luscious slumber. Then I can’t fall back to sleep and my mind starts playing the “What if?” game. It's a vicious cycle.

Lately, my after dinner drink has been a giant mug of Celestial Seasonings SleepyTime Extra Wellness Tea – fortified with Valerian root. The herb Valerian has a similar affect on the brain as Valium - but you don't need a prescription for it and it is not addictive. A number of studies have proven its calming affect on the central nervous system.

It really seems to be helping me. It's not that I don't wake up, but lately I have a much easier time falling back to sleep.

So drink up (the tea, that is).

Chamomile tea works great for cranky babies. :) Our pedi recommened it when my oldest son was a baby, and 4 oz of it worked like a charm when he wouldn't sleep (he was 6 mo old).

Thanks for posting this. I'd like to try it. I've always used chamomile tea when I need to relax, and it's worked wonders for me.
