My son is 6 months 22 days. He wakes up multiple times ( every 1hr or so ) to have breast fed. I dont feed him any other milk yet. Its getting very much exhausting now. I also feed him top feed at around 8 pm which includes semi solid food like rice and moong dal porridge. He is very active and plays alot during day and so i hope he will have a goodnight sleep but that is not happening. Please suggest if i should change something in his meal or routine

you may start with strained vegetable soup including green leafy vegetables , fresh fruit juice. At 6 months you can give ragi porridge, rice kheer, suji kheer or phirni etc. You can gradually start with mashed banana, boiled potatoes, dal water also. Boiled water can be given especially after each solid feed. Starting with a spoon or two you may gradually increase the amount to 120-250 ml in a day. Keep the seasonings mild, keep the consistency flowing initially. You may give three solid feeds maximum, in a day. Click on the following link for details on introducing solids Hope this helps
