Q:

Hi. Is it ok if the baby is asleep and if we bottlefeed him or her?



It is best not to use the bottle in sleep. There is the hazard of choking, over feeding and since the milk will stay in the mouth will also result in dental carries and cavities.

In the night inorder to not disturb baby sleep.u can feed the baby asleep jus make sure to lift her head slightly higher than the body . feeding like this helps not disturbing their sleep .but dont do this in every feed jus night time .
