Sleep Baby, Sleep Series: Tip #2, Fill 'Er Up

If you normally feed or nurse your baby every three or four hours, feed every two or three hours in the evening.

Start several hours before bedtime and maintain the same schedule nightly. By shortening the time between meals, baby’s stomach will be fuller and it will be easier to sleep for a longer period of time.

Sometimes, when babies get tired, they don’t feed or nurse as vigorously and that means they fall asleep hungry. More frequent top-offs ensure baby isn’t hungry when he falls asleep and a sated baby sleeps better and longer.

As baby gets a little older, you can add rice cereal to formula or breast milk. This will make the milk denser and more filling. Always ask your health professional or pediatrician before making a change to baby’s diet.
