Make Middle-of-the-Night Newborn Baby Feedings More Manageable - It's Simple! by Cheryl Leahy
Having a newborn is amazing, but middle-of-the-night feedings can be tiresome and difficult. If you choose to bottle-feed, here's what I do to make it easier:
- I pre-fill bottles with water, then fill a separate container with the corresponding amount of formula.
- When Baby wakes to feed, I put the formula in the bottle and shake it up.
- I keep the bottle on my nightstand, ready to go.
This saves me from making a trip in the middle of the night, and prevents accidentally mixing an incorrect ratio.
Any time-saving tips help, especially at 2 in the morning!
