Giving your baby a bottle of milk in a crib is certainly the most convenient way to make it to sleep. But a bottle in the mouth of a sleeping child is not a good idea for a variety of reasons. It may result in getting used to it and asking for more bottles at night. Nuckelt it s.der bottle, it can also get bad teeth. If you bottle your child lying down, your baby will also be at risk of having an ear infection.

But if you really want to give your baby a bottle of milk before going to sleep, then offer him the bottle before it's in his crib. There are a variety of dental advice that involves brushing your teeth before going to bed. If your baby is older than six months, it may be that the nocturnal snack brings it completely out of rhythm - namely, if it ever gets some solid food and the night food on the bottle. Because it can not distinguish between Einschlafritual and food ritual. If your child craves food during the night, it can also be a sign that he is no longer full and can start with the first porridge.

If your baby has become accustomed to his milk meal in the evening and at night, then try to reduce the amount of milk steadily from meal to meal in small increments (30 to 60 ml). You can start with bedtime. Always try to reduce the amount of milk per evening by 10 ml and that for over a week until you are at zero. Another idea is to reduce the amount of milk and replace it with water. At some point, your baby is drinking only water. I hope your baby thinks it's not worth waking you at night because of a bottle of water.
