Q.

Urgent Help Please!!!

My baby is almost 7 months old. She has 3 solid meals a day. Milk in the morning and at bed time and tea in the afternoon with yoghurt. The problem is, for the past week she does not want to drink her milk. The morning one i can stil manage to give to her, but the one at bed time she will not take. She just want to lie down, wants her dummy and falls asleep. I but the bottle in het mouth when she is asleep but i dont like doing this. I dont know if she is to tiered to drink. One night didnt have the milk at all and she slept so well. Didnt even moan at all. The night she does drink it, she moans alot. I dont know what to do anymore. Should i try to give it to her earlier in the afternoon? Does she have to have milk at bedtime? I know she needs the milk, but does it have to be at bedtime? i have not increased her solids or anything. PLEASE HELP!!

Your baby seems to be too full and too tired for anything in the evening. Why is this the case? Is she getting solids and milk at a creche? Is she taking too much in the way of solids? Remember that at her age her milk is by far the most important food for her, not the solids.
