Please help Doc... my son is almost nine months but he doesn' t sleep much, every now and then he would just scream, and when you brush and massage him he would go back to sleep. Is he having nightmares?the other times he would cry for a bpotlle and then sleep a couple of minutes later, is this normal?ANy measures i can take to prevent this?Otherwise he is a very happy baby, not sick or anything.
Thank you

It seems to me from your description here that your baby may be hungry. He needs more in the way of solids during the day and especially in the evening. He should be on a good mixed solid diet by now.Go to this website for more information on feeding your baby at his age: www.babynet.co.za
