Q.

ref post 943

she gets solids in the afternoon and milk in the morning with tea later. She is growing well. She sleeps well during the day. 2 naps of about 1 1/2 - 2 hour each. But why is this only a problem now. She has been on the same amount of solids for the past month or two.

It is still possible that she is getting too much in the way of solids, so cutting the afternoon solids out for a month or so may help to make her want to take her milk and feeds at bedtime. If you feel that she seems to tire easily it is a good idea to see your paediatricaian just to be sure that she is not anaemic or that there is another reason for her being so tired in the early evening after sleeping so well during the day.
