Sleep Nutrition: Foods that help baby to good
What dinner to give to baby before going to sleep?
Among the important things in the context of a good sleep and a sleep of
quality, there is, besides the rituals of falling asleep also a satiating evening meal and
easy to digest. It is, of course, obvious that such a given meal, for example, in the form
porridge, must not contain added sugars.
After the 4th-6th month, the purely milky diet is gradually replaced by a
diversified food, and we introduce particular porridge, as recommended
the Institute for Pediatric Nutrition Research. In this context, parents ask themselves
many questions about the porridge to give the child to ensure a good night’s sleep

food. In his mother’s body, he could get satiated at any time of the day
or night. So it is certain, at least in the first weeks, that the baby

If you give your baby a milk age, you can share the task of bottle feeding
at night with your partner. You can also do it even if you are breastfeeding if you
pull milk in the evening and put it in the fridge (not more than 12 hours).
From 3 months, the baby can already stay longer without eating and therefore sleep
a little longer at night than during the day. From the age of 2, children no longer need to
eat at night because at this age, in principle, the hunger-satiety rhythm is well established.
