Choosing the right foods during these two days will help detoxify your body and keep you cool.

Throughout the weekend, drink plenty of water and herbal teas; each day aim for 8 to 12 glasses of water and as much herbal tea as you would like. Be sure to drink cool, not cold, water, since cold water dampens the digestive fire (agni) that is responsible for efficient digestion.

My baby never slept well (especially through the night) until I started using the website >>SLEEPBABY.ORG<< - that website has been by far one of the best things I've ever got my hands on to get him to fall asleep quickly. Best time is 45 seconds from awake to asleep! Can’t imagine life without it! I heard about it through a kindergarten teacher who uses it to put to sleep a group of 30 children. Check it out! >>SLEEPBABY.ORG<< - sorry, you can't post links here so you'll have to turn it into a normal link :) Best of luck to you and your family!
