One of the most common queries we get is about toddlers who still wake in the night for a bottle!
It may seem that giving a bottle or breastfeed is the only way to get the toddler back to sleep, and is also the quickest option compared to what can feel like hours of crying or sitting with them.
Parents may also worry that their child is really hungry in the night, particularly if they are a fussy eater or not interested in food during the day.
But one thing is certain - as long as you use milk to resettle your toddler in the night, they will continue to want your attention during the night. Often toddlers who get milk feeds in the night are also early wakers, as they lack the self settling skills needed to resettle for that last sleep cycle in the early morning. Plus they continue to be less interested in food in the day...as they are getting extra calories through the night.
