pls help:

Hi Doc!
So my 9month old does not sleep well at night. He eats well during the day. He weighs 10.6kg. Porridge in the morning, purity veg and fruit for lunch and purity beef and veggies and fruit for supper. Sometimes he' ll have a mashed half a banana during the day, or cheese or vienna, with about 2 milk bottles. after supper and his bath at 6h30pm, he gets a bottle at 8pm and on a good night sleeps till about 10/11pm, then there after wakes up almost every hour for a feed, he finishes a bottle during the night. He seems very restless in his sleep. I' ve taken the blankes off him thinking he gets too hot, but he' s still restless. I don' t know what to do anymore, before you said he was eating too little, but he' s really chubby, he can eat quite a bit. Should i just hang in there. He' s routine stays the same everyday. pls help, i need sleep...(" ,)

Your baby is certainly eating well now.He should not be eating either cheese or viennas at his age.It is possible that his formula is not making him feel full enough,so try him on a formula such as Lactogen2.If this does not help please write to me again.
