Fight Mommy Brain with DHA Find yourself heading to the grocery store but leaving your wallet at home? Constantly spacing on the names of your neighbors? Hello, Mommy Brain! The theory: Pregnant and nursing bodies preferentially shuttle brain-boosting fatty acids to the baby versus the mother. The result: You space on your kid's name in the pediatrician's office, making you feel like World's Worst Mother.
Mom energy advice: Replenish your DHA stores with wild salmon, organic edamame, and walnuts. Resist the urge to pop supplements; the DHA in whole foods is better absorbed and has other nutrients tagging along, like hunger-satisfying protein and cancer-fighting antioxidants.
