How many can a new mom drink a day?
We recommend the following as a guide, but we always recommend you consult your health professional to determine suitability for your individual needs and health records. Pre-pregnancy: 1-3 Aquamamma per day. During pregnancy: 1-3 Aquamamma per day. (9 months) Labor: 1 Aquamamma per hour. After pregnancy / during breastfeeding:1-3 Aquamamma per day (6-12 months).
Can I drink these while taking prenatal vitamins?
Aquamamma contains a small amount of folic acid (37.5 micrograms per 8.5 fl oz drink and 20 microgram per sachet) which is designed to help meet your daily requirements but not to replace your daily supplements. Consuming 1-3 Aquamammas per day in conjunction with your prenatal vitamin adheres to the recommended dietary intake for prenatal women. We cannot advise on your individual needs so we always recommend you consult your healthcare professional to determine your folic acid and supplementation needs.
Are these a good morning sickness remedy?
100%. All that throwing up can be very dehydrating after all! We get loads of feedback (check out our reviews!) about how Aquamamma was the only liquid that women could stomach when experiencing morning sickness, particularly in the first trimester. It’s so important to hydrate after losing fluids through vomiting, but you may not feel like gulping down a big glass of water, so a lightly flavored electrolyte drink such as Aquamamma can help provide some morning sickness relief.
Are your drinks carbonated?
Nope! We’re not carbonated. We’re a naturally flavored, electrolyte water, with added vitamins. Being so deliciously flat makes us easier to gulp. (But legend has it, some people add their sachets to sparkling water, which we think is GENIUS.)
Can I drink these during labor?
Absolutely. Some people say being in labor is like running a marathon and we say, it’s more like running ten. Back-to-back. Aquamamma is designed to take care of your electrolyte needs during labor, and is also low in sugar and sodium making it a healthier option than sports drinks or oral rehydration solutions.
Why is hydration so important?
Hydration is always important but for women who are trying to get pregnant, who are pregnant, or who have just given birth, it’s vital. During this time, her body’s working overtime to create and keep a tiny human alive. That takes A LOT of energy. So her body requires more fluid than usual. If she doesn’t keep her fluids up she can become dehydrated, which could have an adverse impact on her health and even the health of her baby.
How much fluid should pregnant and breastfeeding women consume?
Pregnant women should aim to drink 78 fl oz (around 10-12 glasses) of fluid each day and for breastfeeding women it’s 88 fl oz (around 12-15 glasses). If you’re vomiting, exercising or living in heat this could be even more.
