Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

Not a lot of sleep aids, either pharmaceutical or natural, are safe during pregnancy. Try some chamomile tea, warm milk, and prenatal yoga. Sleep with a pillow between your legs so that your hips stay in alignment. This will help you to stay more comfortable during the night.
