Hi, welcome to Mommy Matters. I'm Shannon with babyessentials.com .com. Here today to talk to you about putting cereal in your baby’s bottle and will that help your baby sleep through the night? And therefore let you sleep through the night. The short answer is no. This is an—question that is kind of coming back now because we’re also desperate for some really good sleep. But actually studies have shown that putting cereal in your baby’s bottle is not going to help you out and in fact might create more problems. It can kind of mess with your baby’s ability to figure out for themselves when they’re full, when they’re hungry. This is not what they’re used to yet. And a lot of times the question comes out and it's really premature. It's not time to give babies cereal at all let alone in the bottle. So, definitely stick with just formula or breast milk in the bottle and we will give you some other tips for having you to sleep through the night and in a future segment. Thanks so much, how this information was helpful. And for more information, go to babyessentials.com .com. Have a great day.
