I am a 25 year old woman. I have a 2 year old daughter that I still breadfeed but only at night as I am at work during the day. I am also studying and writing exams soon. Its the anything that i can use which is safe during breastfeeding to give me more enery. Because by the time she sleeps and I feel so drained and lack enery to study!!

Any stimulant such as caffeine that you take will pass into your breastmilk and will affect your child. You need to wean her off the breast now.

Thanks all of you. I am married and my husband tries to help out, but when my daughter is tired she prefers mommy. So whenever I have to study he has to take her to go visit his mom. Its a lot of hard work, but also rewarding. Motherhood on its own is quiet a challenge, but a very precious blessing from God.

You can use schweiden berry elixier - make a mixture of it with apple juice and water in a 2L jug to drink during the day. There is also a lot of vitamins and supplements especially for breastfeeding - I used Foodstate' s one. I know you can also use Vita Thion sachets. I use Bidomak tonic in such tough times and it is realy good but I do not breastfeed anymore - just ask your pharmacist if you can also use it. Good luck with the exams!!! I admire you!!!!
