Summers in south Florida are HOT…but I wouldn’t trade it for anything. With beaches and palm trees all around I can’t imagine calling anyplace else home. Now that Mia is five months old and Blake is a very active two year old, we spend a lot of time outdoors, at the beach or in the pool.
I work in outside sales during the week so I’m always driving to and from customer locations. With Mia being exclusively breastfed, that also means I’m pumping three to four times a day whether that’s in the car while driving or in the office. Any breastfeeding Mom knows how important it is to stay hydrated while nursing! After getting tired of the same old sports drinks and boring coconut water…I realized it was time for a pantry refresh!!!
I may not be running marathons, jumping hurdles (wait…do jumping over random Legos, hot wheels and piles of laundry count?!), or swimming laps in Rio but breastfeeding does take a lot of energy, work, dedication…and it takes staying very hydrated in order to maintain your supply. My pantry was usually stocked with your regular sports drinks, which did the job…but not in the most healthy of ways. I shouldn’t be consuming four to five sports drinks a day that I hide from Blake because I wouldn’t want him drinking them. If I don’t want him drinking them, why am I?
BODYARMOR is a premium sports drink with more potassium packed electrolytes, coconut water and vitamins. BODYARMOR has natural flavors, natural sweeteners and no artificial colors, unlike traditional sports drinks. It’s a GREAT choice for young athletes especially, who don’t need all the extra sodium in their diets or the artificial ingredients that come from drinking other sports drinks on the market. BODYARMOR also makes an excellent drink of choice for BREASTFEEDING MOMS because it gives the benefits of a sports drink without all of the added chemicals, sugars and artificial ingredients that you don’t need. By drinking two a day I saw an increase in 2-3oz of pumped milk per day!
BODYARMOR comes in 8-great tasting flavors: fruit punch, orange mango, strawberry banana, tropical punch, lemon lime, mixed berry, grape and blackout berry. My personal favorites are the orange mango, tropical punch and grape. Blake’s favorite is the strawberry banana. You know what’s also great? These are availble at your local Target stores all around Florida so I can stock up everytime I do a Target run (like I need another reason to visit Target)! It’s also available at Publix and Winn Dixie.
