wow, I’ve never heard of that!  at the hospital I just had apple juice and water…I labored most of the time at home and had juice and I think a popsicle?  I had cereal that morning which didn’t stay down.  🙁  I’ve heard honey sticks are good and saw them at Sprouts the other day.

Ack! I don’t even know what this is or why?  I guess that’s why we get 9 months…so we can figure all this stuff out!

I had 4 kids and never used that!  Luckily, all my kids came fast and I had insanely short labours!

I will be using coconut water (bought a bunch of different flavors at Whole Foods last week to stock up!) to drink during labor, and I made Sugar Plums (a holiday mixture of honey, dried fruit, and toasted nuts) for labor snacks. We’re going in prepared!

I didn’t know I was in prodromal labor until after my water broke.  I was just eating normal all day.  When I was in active labor I wasn’t really thirsty or anything, but I was LOVING the ice!  Crunchy softwater ice.  It was so good.

What is the baking soda for?  I only ask because one of the remedies for your kids ingesting a poison is to give them a tablespoon of baking soda, which makes them vomit.  It seems like baking soda and labor wouldn’t go well together.  :-S

Where did you get the recipe?  I’ve never heard of “laborade” before but it sounds like a smart move to have something ready!
