  • If you have a breast pump, try mixing some rice cereal with your own milk and feeding it to her with a spoon, or mixing it to a very thin consistency in a bottle. I started doing this with both my girls when they were only a few weeks old, with no ill effects at all. They definitely slept better!

    Another good idea is a "sleep sak". (I'm sure you know what I'm talking about.) Just feeling toasty warm and snuggly helped my girls sleep better and longer.

  • I have a 7.5-month old who doesn't sleep more than 4 hours at a time. Cereal doesn't really make them sleep longer and putting it in a bottle is a choking hazard. Getting older is the only way I know to make your DD sleep longer.
