(HealthDay News) -- Older babies may be able to sleep through the night, but may still wake up to nurse.
The University of Michigan Health System suggests how to curb baby's nighttime nursing:
- Offer more frequent feedings throughout the day.
- Encourage baby to fall asleep without being nursed, such as by being rocked by your partner or carried in a baby sling.
- When baby cries, wait before you go in and nurse. Increase this wait time gradually.
