Does warm milk really help you fall asleep?


Answer by  Pumpkin1 (201)

Milk contains two ingredients that aid in sleeping. Melatonin; which is a hormone and Tryptophan; which is an amino acid. Add this to the warmth that may bring back memories of childhood and having a warm bottle at bedtime while being rocked by your parents and this may help people fall asleep.


Answer by  jackie (276)

Milk contains chemicals that can aid sleep, but not in quantities that will really affect you. However, warm milk can soothe you, which helps. And if you are used to drinking warm milk at bedtime, merely repeating that ritual can be a way to prepare your mind to shut off and allow you to get to sleep.

That is absurd. It will make you have to get up and pee like any beverage would and give you a stomach ache like any milk would. Of course if you believe it works, then it might.

Not everyone suffers stomach aches from milk. I for one do not and neither does anyone in my family. Silence your ignorance.  add a comment

Yeah! Silence YOUR ignorance. I sometimes drink up to a half gallon of milk a day and My stomach is fine. Warm milk helps me fall asleep, but I think it's merely psychological.  add a comment

The warm milk theory sounds like some words of wisdom from Aunt Bea from the Andy Griffith show. In other words: worthless. A nice cocktail (just one) and half a xanax and you will be sleeping like a baby  add a comment

In most cases it does help.Warm milk can calm people's nerve and eliminate their worry.It is better for people to have milk two hours before they sleep,but please be sure not to have much more,otherwise people have to go to washroom later.
