Ditch the Dream Feed

It's essential to feed baby when he's hungry but let that sleeping baby lie. 

If you wake your baby for a booby or a bottle snack just before you go to bed in the hope that he'll sleep longer on a full tummy, you'll likely only get more waking and more snacking. 

Whereas if you let baby's sleep consolidate naturally, you're more likely to get more sleep and fuller feeds.

More often than not, dream feeds confuse babies about what exactly night time is for and give them a reason to wake up more while their disrupting valuable REM sleep. 

In truth, most babies can have their nutritional needs met in the day and don't need to eat in the night.

If you're unsure, let's chat about it. I love talking sleep!
