    Default Giving your baby solid food early won't help them sleep better

    New research claims that giving babies solid foods at just three months old will help them sleep. Though this may sound appealing to exhausted new parents, unfortunately there is a large gulf between the headlines and the data.
    Much of the published evidence in this area actually shows the opposite, that what a baby eats has nothing to do with their sleep. In 2015 we found that neither breast nor formula milk, timing of solids introduction, nor the amount of solids eaten affected how often babies woke up at six to 12 months.
    Another study has found that the common practice of adding rice cereal to a bottle before bed (which should be avoided as it can cause choking) has no impact on sleep at four months old. While a third found that early introduction of solids was associated with less sleep at 12 months old.

    Interesting. I fail to understand why published articles have not been edited or proofread before being submitted. Look at that in-your-face sentence fragment at the end!

    If I understand all this correctly ???, it sounds to me more of a matter of going to bed with an empty, well digested stomach, more than any of the other mentioned problems, for both the parents as well as the baby. No one should have solid food in their stomach within 4 hours of going to bed, especially a baby.
