Night Feeding Baby – Right Way to Night Wean 2021

When is your baby ready to stop having milk in the night? Is it something he or she WANTS or actually NEEDS? If it is time for night feeding to stop, how can you go about this when your little one screams until they get it? – All of this is answered for you in this episode of The Sleep Nanny Show.

It took an outside expert opinion to give me the courage to stop giving my baby milk in the night. Sometimes we can’t see things so clearly when we are ‘in’ it but a professional can ask the right questions to determine the best steps we can take.

It turned out, my baby was just fussing and didn’t need any milk. She didn’t need anything, she was just transitioning from sleep cycle to another and was new to this at 3 months of age. Giving her some space to work on it while keeping a close eye on her nearby was the best thing I could do and, sure enough, after a few nights, she’d mastered it and could resettle!

We’d love to know if this episode has helped you so please leave us your comments on the blog below.

    Hi!
    My baby is 7 months old and we’re doing fairly well with the sleep journey. She’s started getting up twice in the night again. We had cut down to one night feed but we’ve worked back up to two (probably because of my sleepiness).
    Could teething be affecting the wakings? Or I just need to set a plan for the only night feed and stick to it?
    Any help is much appreciated and I look forward to getting the Sleep Nanny book!

      Hi, thanks for your comment. It is unlikely hunger both times, if at all but it may just have become the go to response and expectation. Yes, teething pain can disturb sleep but it’s important you don’t create a feed to sleep association at this time. One dream feed and a consistent response to any other waking will be a great way to test if there is any hunger in the night. So happy that you’re getting my book!

Do you find you have to do something to or for your little one in order for them to go to sleep? Is there a particular thing or a bunch of things that send them off into the land of nod?This week, in a brand new episode of The Sleep Nanny Show I share with you how to get your little one to self settle, happily, responsively and effectively! <<<https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4wp0URnUtQY>>>I share my loving approach to guiding babies and young children through the essential process of adjusting to their own sleep space, becoming at ease with being placed down for sleep and needing less and less help to actually get to sleep until they’re totally competent and can self settle happily.When little ones can settle themselves to sleep at the onset of sleep, they can then resettle their minor wakings between sleep cycles which leads to them achieving longer and longer stretches of nourishing and restorative sleep (and for you too)!Tag a friend who needs to hear this advice! ...
