Sleepy Time Tea
JeanellCox posted:
Have had trouble sleeping, friend gave me Sleepytime Extra Herbal by Celestial. It is caffeine free, didn't know if any of you ladies have heard of or used it. If so did it help. Soooo tired at night, just can't fall asleep.

My DH uses that tea all the time. Not sure if it safe to use while you are pregnant. I have heard to steer clear of most herbal teas.

I also use that (and love it!), but definitely not while I'm pregnant. You may want to ask your doc about it. It contains valerian, which is not recommended for pregnant women. I think even echinachea is a no-no.
JeanellCox responded:
Here are the ingredients. But I think from what you guys are saying, probably no. I have appt thurs with Dr and will just take it with me. Supplement Facts Serving Size: 1 tea bag Makes: 8 fl. oz. Amount Per Serving % Daily Value Chamomile (Matricaria recutita) (flowers) 600mg * Tilia estella (Ternstroemia pringlei) (flowers) 160mg * Valerian (Valeriana officinalis) (root) 25mg * * Percent Daily Values have not been established. Other Ingredients: Spearmint, West Indian lemongrass, hawthorn and orange blossoms. Any other natural remedies to help with sleep. Dr. said I could take Tylenol PM but really don't want to.
tamliz08 responded:
Will you let us know what your doctor tells you about the tea? I am curious. Also, I have heard that Tylenol PM is safe. Is there a reason you don't like to take that? I've heard it REALLY helps!
