Q.

7 month old waking at night

My 7 month old baby keeps on waking at night. Normally she just wants her dummy but is is happening more and more. Could she be needing more food during the day? Can I ween her of the dummy and how??? Will this help?

Although she seems to want her dummy, your baby is probably waking up because she is hungry. She probably needs more in the way of solids, especially in the evening.

she is on solids, she does drink milk but not to keen anymore, her last bottle we are trying to give to her before she has a bath so she does not depend on it to fall asleep.
