Lack of Sleep. Extra Carbs at Night to Reduce Cortisol?

#1

Hi CT,

I have a newborn baby that does not sleep much, my sleep is not good maybe 3-5h a night, chopped up between feeding. I have a hard time falling back to sleep if im up i the middel of the night.

Can extra carbs at night just before bedtime reduce cortisol due to the bad sleep?

Thx
