Dry Mouth Cure!

October 3, 2011

I finally figured out how to not have such bad dry mouth due to breastfeeding! Carter and I have been sick-somehow Frank missed this bug- for the last couple of days. His runny nose has gotten worse and he is sleepy all the time. I can just tell he doesn’t feel 100%. Poor baby. My throat wasn’t getting any better and since I didn’t want to take any medicine-due to breastfeeding- I gargled some salt water before going to bed. It helped my throat a little. When I woke up, I realized I had only drank 1/2 a glass of water. Usually I go through 1 1/2 to 2. Looking back it makes total sense and I should have thought of this before. Salt retains water. Duh! Anyways, I am soooo excited to not feel like a fish out of water. Pass along the tip!

LESSON LEARNED: Dry mouth? Gargle salt water.
