Q.

Baby not sleeping

Hi there,

My friend''s baby is about 7 months old, but she refuses to sleep. It takes her mom up to two hours to get her te fall asleep.

She is a bit cranky because of new teeth.

Does anyone have some advise please?

This is the age when babies are teething and this can be very disturbing for some babies.Your friend should gently rub her baby's gums with her finger and then apply a teething gel such a Pansoral gel. If her baby is very restless she can give her baby a dose of Panado for infants when necessary.
