Hi Doc

My daughter is six months and over these past few days she has been waking up at 3 and not go to sleep again like she is hungry or something...she will drink all her milk and still not sleep..she has been sleeping very well...

she takes about two spoons of cearelec rice a day..could she be hungry at night?does she need super at this age?she weighs about 10 kgs and drinks about 1050 ml of milk a day.

Thanks

Your baby is unlikely to be hungry, but you can increase her solids as she is on very little now. A fruit such as apple or pear would be good in addition to her Cerelac. The most likely reason for her wakefulness is teething at this age.
