The normal weight for a baby girl of 13 months is almost 10 kg. Your baby's weight is well below the average.I do not quite understand your question. Do you mean that your child does not have anything to drink or eat all day until you come home and breatfeed her after 6pm every day?No wonder she does not sleep as she is hungry.She Should be on a full mixed diet at her age.You need to make a plan for her to be fed properly during the day.
