  • Thanks everyone I gave him a yogurt and some crackers and he's off to bed again! he's going to be 7 next month and must be having a growth spurt because his appetite has grown twofold! this is his first time ever waking up in the middle of the night hungry thanks for the ideas!

  • I usually give my kids plain bread when they wake up hungry. They love it and fall right back to sleep.

  • ~*Oatmeal*~... weighs the tummy so they feel "full"... when I was little my mom used to tell me, "it'll stick to your ribs"

  • Water is the best because you don't want the wake up to become a habit. But if you are sure that it's a rare thing, than two saltines and then water.
