So I got my kids a snow cone maker this summer and thought it would be awesome during labor. Just the shaved ice or with a dose of something to recharge on top. Anyone have a good Laborade recipe that is not too tart or sweet I could make concentrate for the snow cones? I am not sure how honey would work, but maybe if it was predesolved. I did make a laborade with one of my births, not sure if I remembered to drink it, I think it was a little tart. I wonder if a nectar like mango or nectarine diluted with a little Smart water would be a good substitute. Usually for my kids I use 100% juice concentrate melted for snow cone flavors. Lemonade is good too. My midwife required Smart water to be stocked for labors. It is actually found in a lot of Generics as well these days. It is just water with electrolytes. So the same as Gatorade with out the extra stuff. She could use it for a hydration enema as well for emergencies. Okay that post was a little random, but there are so many cool ideas!
