As cute and innocent as babies are, they have a way of turning a household completely upside down — particularly at night. If you are within earshot of these adorable bundles of joy, sleep is out of the question. Some experts recommend dreamfeeding as a way to help bleary-eyed moms get some extra shut-eye. If you're thinking about giving it a try, you're going to need all of the help you can get. Which is why you'll want to know the ways your partner can help with dreamfeeding.
According to The Baby Sleep Site, dreamfeeding is the process of waking your baby for a feeding before you go to bed yourself. By adding a dream feed to your routine, the hope is that your baby will sleep for a longer stretch of time during the night and allow you and your partner to get some much needed rest, as well.
Whether it's helping with the baby's bedtime routine or taking on other household chores, by sharing the load with your partner, you can successfully implement dreamfeeding in your home. And as a result, your baby may sleep better, for longer stretches of time, as Happiest Baby suggested. All of that extra sleep may also ensure that you and your partner's relationship stays intact.
