I'd go with that; I haven't used it myself but it does get good reviews, as you say.

On the issue of tiredness, here's a small piece you may find of interest...in addition to the normal broken sleep cycles that occur after having a newborn:

Could there be other reasons for my fatigue?Maybe. There's an association between extreme fatigue and postpartum depression, though it's often not clear what's causing what. (Chronic sleep deprivation may contribute to your feeling depressed, and feeling depressed can make sleeping more difficult.)

In any case, if you find that you can't sleep, have lost interest in doing anything, and feel despairing, you could be suffering from postpartum depression. Call your healthcare practitioner for a referral to a therapist.


Anemia may also cause or add to your fatigue. If you were anemic during pregnancy or lost a lot of blood at delivery, your practitioner may advise to you to take iron supplements in addition to prenatal vitamins.

Postpartum fatigue can sometimes be a symptom of an underactive thyroid gland, also known as hypothyroidism. A small percentage of women develop this condition four to eight months after giving birth. Talk to your ob-gyn or midwife if your fatigue gets worse around this time. Hypothyroidism is treatable.

It may be a case of seeing a doctor to make sure there is no underlying condition; some women suffer depression and so forth after having a baby, without ever being diagnosed and then realise years too late what they were going through...so, a doctor's visit may not be a bad idea.
