7 months old baby

Question: My son is over 6 months now. He has developed a habit of compulsive breast feeding before sleeping both during day n night. During night he wakes up 4 to 5 times but just passively suckles. Should i switch over to pacifier? I still cant get enough sleep.

Answer: Dear at 7 months more of semi solids will help him get off this habit. It is also recommended to stop using pacifiers at the age of 1 year so I would say try and increase the intake of food for your baby it could be happening due to hunger or his apetite is increased. I believe the problem should be resolved once you increase the food quantity you have been giving. Hope it helps.

Question: My 13 months old son wakes up many times in the night , i get very tired feeding him...how can i make him sleep whole night without feeds?
Answer: Try to give less liquid food during night because it is easily digestible. Give some solids and put him to sleep. Especially avoid milk before bed. They may pee a lot at night. And feels hungry soon. Also make him understand the difference between night and day by introducing dim light in room during night.
