If your baby is healthy and does not attend a creche then she probably does not need the flu immunization.There are may possible causes for your baby sleeping for such short periods at night.These range from teething to having a blocked nose to her possibly getting hungry.Is she eating enough in the way of solids?Try her on a formula which suits hungry baies such as SMA Gold or Lactogen2.
