Dear Abha, l may be wrong. .but it is impossible for a child to sleep peacefully for a long time if her stomach is really empty. My son's pediatrician told me that after a filling dinner with solid food if a child drinks milk 2 to 3 times at night... it is not hunger.. it is addition to milk. MY SON IS LIKE THAT... HE DRINKS MILK TWICE AFTER THE DINNER. Children like sucking. may be that your baby doing it for a feel good factor. Don't disturb her sleep... she will be cranky in the morning. Try to give her a good filling but easy digestive dinner. lt is my personal opinion, please consider fellow parents advice.
