A PAEDIATRIC sleep consultant has shared the seven foods that she claims will help your baby sleep.
The savvy mum, who is from the US and posts under the acronym @babysleepteam, took to TikTok where she shared an educational video discussing the top foods that you can feed your baby with great fat and iron content.
In the clip, she begins: “Food and sleep go together like peas and carrots so it’s really important that you’re giving the baby the nutrients they need so it can help to support their sleep.”
“As a paediatric sleep consultant I can’t tell you how many parents don’t know if their baby’s are genuinely hungry or are waking up out of habit.”
“So when they’ve started solids, by loading them up with calories during the day, it’ll help them sleep better at night and you can feel assured they’re not hungry.”
She then goes on to share her seven top food recommendations to help with your little one’s irons and fat.
Firstly, she advises butternut pumpkin, before moving on to highlight the benefits of steak and liquid greens like spinach.
She also praises the benefits of peanut butter, avocado, peas and eggs.

The informative post has since received thousands of views, with many taking to the comments section to discuss the revelations.
