Your baby does seem to be rather sleepy for a 6-month old baby. She certainly does not need feeds every 2 hours now. All this waking her up may actually be making her tired.I am a bit concerned that she is so sleepy nowl and would like to be sure that she is not anaemic and is quite well. Please ask your paediatrician to see her.
