OK.. before stopping bf please first start WD proper meals.. u can restrict daytime bf.. n they might eat well.. n regarding dinner ,u can give ur babies dalia or khichadi or roti soaked in dal.. make sure to add a little cow ghee to their night food. this will keep them full during night. For at least 15-20 days first gradually decrease n stop day time bf.. after that kids might take proper day meals n then u can stop night bf too.

Hi mansi.. I can understand.. my baby used to do the same thing.. if u have started ur kids on solid food.. make sure they have three proper meals n at least two snacks or fruits in between.. if they are eating this much in day.. their body can go 7-8 hrs of night without feed.. I that of continuing night feeding my son,but that created another vicious cycle.. he would take feed.. even after a full tummy dinner.. n than urinate... n he never likes to wear diapers! So that means I had to wake evrytime along n make him urinate in his toilet seat.. that would make him again hungry n he will again take feed... only to repeat it all again! I half heartedly stopped feeding him at night.. starting 4-5 nights were struggling,but eventually he settled down.. now he gets up just two time.. just to urinate!n I get to sleep a little better.. Try this n gd luck!

Hi Mansi, you are not alone. l am on the same boat too. I can tell you some possibilities. .. may be it is because of nightmare or because of temperature fluctuation or because they like to have a hug from you. You can play some softlight toys with sweet music. can give a boby massage.

Hi Mansi, i can understand your situation it is really difficult tell me do you breastfeed them? and also how do put them to sleep? try to cut down their sleep time during day time, keep a good time gap before putting them to sleep in night, feed solid before putting them to sleep and also at last ask one of your family member to put them to bed you just step out of the room. Hope this will help you.
