Cheesy Salmon & Broccoli Puree

There are a lot of reasons why babies wake up at night but giving them the right foods could maximise their chances of a more settled sleep. Here’s why I had to include this recipe in my Sleep Series with Pampers.

Omega-3: salmon is one of the best sources of the long-chain omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA. Not only do these play a critical role in your baby’s brain and visual development, research has found that DHA also increases serotonin levels which  could help your baby to nod-off naturally.

Tryptophan: broccoli and cheese contain tryptophan which aids the production of baby’s sleep-producing hormone melatonin.

And having the right nappy will pay dividends too. Pampers Premium Protection Nappies have a Derma Comfort layer with 1000+ soft micropores to instantly pull wetness away from the skin and give up to 100% leak-free protection for 12 hours.  That’s another potential sleep barrier solved!
