My baby is 11 months old. still she is not sleeping long. She wants breast milk at every half an hour at night maybe due to habit or for soothing. she awakes up every half n hour or hour. As she is not sleeping properly, she is not gaining her weight. she is 7 kgs now. how i make her sleep long? pl suggest weight gain foods n weaning process

the child needs to be fed three solid feeds in through the day apart from her milk feeds. This would help in her sleeping well through the night too. You can give porridge of suji, sago, dalia, rice flakes, ragi etc. Fruit smoothie especially made of banana/mango and malai, milk/curd Boiled & mashed potato , boiled sweet potato with a little butter, Scrambled egg yolk with added milk, egg nog or egg added to soup Dal-roti mash, dalia dal khichdi. Add extra spoon of ghee/butter/oil to their dishes. Fruit yogurt made of full-fat milk, Full-fat milk based puddings like rice kheer/dates& raisins(cooked & mashed) custard/vermicelli kheer/gajar kheer
