Q.

Baby not sleeping well

My grandaughter is totally breast fed at 7 months with only a very small amount, about 2 teaspoons, of cereal and veggies daily. She is not sleeping well at all and my daughter is constantly having to feed her during the night and day.

Baby is looking very healthy and solid but I am concerned that my daughter is not getting suffiecient rest.

Should baby be eating more solids by this time?
Thank you for your advice

I agree, the problem may well be that your baby granddaughter is hungry.She does need more in the way of solids at 7 months.
