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!

    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!

Your little one’s daytime naps or lack thereof could be the secret sauce to getting sleep filled nights!

In this week's episode I explain why naps are so important for night sleep and how the two go hand in hand. If your little one isn’t getting adequate daytime sleep, there is a good chance their night sleep will be disturbed and short too!

I also share with you how much sleep little ones need at different ages and stages and, really importantly, how these sleeps need to be spaced out so as not to keep them awake for too long and enter the over tired zone!

Whether you watch on YouTube or listen on the podcast (youtu.be/CASxK1gJoXY), we’d love to hear what you like about this episode so please, leave your comments below.
