Oisín’s Experience on Lullaby Milk

Oisin - blog

We would like to introduce our little boy Oisín, the newest member to our family. At 18 months old he has been drinking Lullaby Milk for the past 6 months. We would like to share our experience with you on how well Lullaby Milk is working for him and for US.

Nobody can prepare you for that 1st year with your first child and we were exhausted beyond reason. To add to getting used of being 1st time parents, Oisín at 4 months may have thought it was fun thinking he was going milking with daddy at 3am in the morning which meant our new play time started at lullaby milking time. If only I could have sent him off to the farm with daddy!!

The First Time Introduced to Lullaby Milk

When we first started Oisín on Lullaby Milk we slowly introduced him to a few ounces the first few nights. Even though I knew he had a good dairy tolerance I didn’t want to overload him the first time he was introduced to dairy milk in bottles. I also watered down the first few bottles with one to two ounces of water when weaning him off his formula. On night 4 I gave him his first 9oz bottle of Lullaby Milk, this was only 260ml so I knew it wouldn’t be enough to get him to sleep through the night but it was a start. At the end of the first week I had increased to the recommended 300ml and while this amount works for some parents our very hyper little boy ploughed on fighting sleep. By the end of week 2 we had increased this to 400ml and started to see improvement. At this stage I gave him 200ml at 5pm and 200ml at 7pm, bedtime was between 7pm and 7:30pm. I’m sure most of you can relate to the middle of the night wakes, wanting to come into bed with you or middle of the night play time. Where we saw the difference at this stage is play time stopped, while he was still waking, this would only last a few minutes and once he knew we were there he nodded off as quick as he woke. It was time to put 500ml to the test.

6 Months Later….

At 18 months our boy is very very hyper, I start Oisín on Lullaby Milk at 4:30pm, he loves his milk but can take his time drinking it, I give him a 9 oz bottle at snack time (4:30pm) and then between 6 and 7 he gets another full bottle or when the 1st one runs out and also drinks these bottles on the go while playing. Bedtime is at 7pm and he goes down between 7pm and 7:30pm every night, with the exception of being out and about on an afternoon and I forget to bring it with me which has happened and it’s not good!!


Being a natural source of melatonin drinking lullaby milk is a suitable way to help with sleep, especially for our little ones. When using our experience as a guideline, times can be changed around to suit bedtime in your house. For children still in nappies its ok to give just before bed but for older children ensure its at least 30 minutes before bed. When weaning your little one onto dairy milk ensure you do this over a small period of time as too much too soon can cause a very unsettled baby. We recommend over a 2 week period if not already on dairy milk. If already on dairy milk our guidelines are to start off with 300ml and if you feel they need more, increase gradually over the first few nights (max 500ml).

Please note for adults you can drink 500ml 30 minutes to 1 hour before bedtime.
