We have a 1 year old who wakes every couple of hours. She sleeps most of the night in her bed (on a mattress on the floor, beside our bed, on the floor). When she wakes, her father reaches over and lets her eat about a 1/2 a plum/happy tots fruit pack. After which, she promptly flops back on her bed and sleeps. If I take her to my side of the bed to nurse, she just sips and pops off, sips and pops off, all the while tossing and turning (acrobatics) not really eating much and keeping us both awake.
My questions are: 1. Are her (2) teeth going to rot from eating fruit in the middle of the night? 2. Why is the fruit pack more satisfying than breast milk? 3. Why is she hungry in the middle of the night - what can I feed her before she sleeps that will 'stick to her ribs'?
