Restless 7mnth old

Hi, my baby is 7.5mths old but he is very restless, he is ONLY breastfeeding, he eats well but he never sleeps more the 1 hour during the night. I gave hime panado the other night which helped alot but i scared that he would get addicted to it. So i''m up very now and then and then i still have to wake up for work in the morning, which leaves me tired the whole day. HELP

There must be a reason why your baby is so restless. You do not mention if this is a new problem or he has always been so restless. He may be teething and that is why Panado helped him so much.Another possible cause is reflux causing him discomfort.Try giving him Gaviscon liquid 2.5ml tonight and see if he is less resless. If this helps him then reflux is the probable cause.Another possibility is that he may be a hungry baby. Make sure that he is on the correct solids for his age ( and try him on a formula which is suitable for hungry babies such as Lactogen2.
