Will cereal in his bottle help my son sleep through the night?
Q:
Wilma San Jose
A: Is it true that putting cereal in a baby’s bottle will help him sleep through the night? My baby is 2 months old and wakes up for one feeding at night. My mother told me to put cereal in the bottle and he’d sleep through. Is this OK to do?
