I heard that if you put some rice cereal in your baby's bottle that it helps them feel full longer and helps them sleep through the night? Has anyone done this and had any success with it? My 8 month old still wakes up once through the night and the only thing that gets her back to sleep is feeding her a bottle. If you've done this and had success with it, how much cereal do you put in an 8 ounce bottle?

Ok. Thank you so much for answering. I wasn't sure but my mother-in-law told me a friend of hers had twins that she did that with and it worked but that was over 25 years ago. Thanks so much Brianna.

cereal in a bottle is dangerous is not only because its a choking hazzard but they can easiy accidently breath some of the cereal in the bottle in and can cause serious lung infections. lots of 8 months old still wake at night.. i think the majority for babies start sleeping threw the night at 12 months old (sleeping threw the night almost every night that is)
