How well are you sleeping? How much sleep do you get each night? Do you wake up feeling rested? Up until recently my answers to these questions were: “not well at all, not nearly enough, and what is rested?” Since having babies I have not been a good sleeper. Even once they started sleeping through the night, I had a very hard time getting a full night’s sleep myself. I don’t really have trouble falling asleep — I’m usually exhausted by about 6 pm. But I couldn’t stay asleep. I am a light sleeper anyways and once something woke me up (husband, child, a noise, pain) I struggled to get back to sleep. That has deteriorated even further to always waking up a couple of hours after I go to bed and being awake for hours. Even trying things like going to bed earlier, diet changes, meditation before sleep, and reading before bed didn’t work anymore. I was waking up every night between 2 and 4 am and felt terrible in the morning.
I felt like I needed something to help me sleep beyond the usual things. I tried ibuprofen pm but am really trying not to take ibuprofen unless absolutely necessary. I tried melatonin but that alone didn’t work and I still often woke up at 4 am unable to fall back to sleep or would feel groggy the next day. I didn’t want to take anything stronger because I need to be able to wake up and be a mom if one of the kids needs me. Then I discovered ORB Wellness and their Sleep Complex. It helps me sleep like I did before I became a mom and it is all because of the combination of ingredients and their delayed release. ORB Sleep Complex contains melatonin and valerian to help promote sleep and relaxation. L-Theanine, a natural antioxidant, helps to give you a sense of calm and well-being. They use a relaxation oil blend of lavender and ylang ylang to help you wind down and improve the quality of your sleep. And their delayed release of B-12 helps you to wake up energized. All I know is, I feel like a new person who can actually sleep again.
As always, consult your doctor before taking any supplement or medication — I always make sure anything I take won’t conflict with my thyroid medication. I’m so glad to have found the ORB Sleep Complex because I was really getting to a point where I wasn’t functioning well during the day because my sleep quality was so poor. In the last week I’ve felt much better and hope that only continues as I take the full 60 day supply (as needed) so that when I’ve finished it I’ll be a new woman.
Want to get your hands on ORB’s Sleep Complex too? You can now find it online or in stores at Costco! Normal retail price is $39.99 for a 60-day supply (totally worth it for priceless good sleep!), but it is just $38.99 for a 120 day supply at Costco ($39.99 online for a 120 day supply). And if you aren’t a Costco member or don’t have one in your area you can find it online at ORB Wellness. You can also find more information about the product and ask their support team any questions you might have.
Do you have healthy sleep habits? Do you need a sleep aid to feel rested? How many hours of sleep are you getting? I’m really grateful to have found something that is helping me to get the sleep I need to feel good and be a better mom each day.
