Aquamamma – Hydration for Bumps and Beyond

Keeping well hydrated while breastfeeding has always been one of the hardest parts of breastfeeding for me personally.   Although I am fairly good at drinking water the longer Frankie has been breastfeeding, the slacker I have become at keeping myself well hydrated and like other mums, I probably drink a little too much coffee.

If I think back to those early days when you spend most of your day and night breastfeeding, it is easier to remember to have a glass of water, or I would carry a water bottle with me so I was sipping all the time.    I do remember having that overwhelming urge as I sat down to feed Alex or Frankie that I needed a drink right that minute.  The same went for eating, if I needed a snack, I needed it right that minute otherwise I felt like I would fall over and die.    My advice to new mums since has been ‘make sure you have water and snacks where ever you go’!

This week I was lucky enough to receive a three pack of Aquamamma hydration drinks from Kidspot Mums Say to review.   Firstly I just have to say I was blown away by their overnight delivery, and looking at their Facebook page and reviews this isn’t a one-off either.  Excellent service, right from the start!

We all know what sports drinks taste like, I won’t name brands, but when I opened a bottle of Aquamamma I was expecting that sickly sweet taste that is all too common with the usual brands.    My first sip of Aquamamma and it just tasted like I was drinking a glass of water, it wasn’t until I had swallowed that the subtle hints of fruits came through.  The flavour is natural tasting, my favourite was the orange and least favourite was the lemon flavour which I did think tasted slightly artificial.  I could drink this every day and not feel overpowered by it.   Although I have only had three of these drinks over the last few days I do feel more hydrated, it’s easy to drink and when I have been thirsty I have reached for one of these instead of water and it’s quenched my thirst with a few mouthfuls.   I think Aquamamma would have been great for my early stages in pregnancy when I had all day nausea and sickness due to the fact it isn’t too sweet and overpowering.
