My baby is 8 months old, and she is not sleeping more than 1. 5 hrs continually. What should I do.

You are welcome.. just to ease you more my daughter used to have just around two spoonfuls of food or just 70-80ml milk or juice when her first teeth erupted.. and now she hardly sleeps during the day.. she takes naps of 15-20 mins if at all... so babies do sleep less as activities increase.. dont worry yourself.. all the best!!!

You cannot increase capacity.. please dont force feed and 100 ml at a time is fine.. please dont forget she is a baby... babies drink as much they need.. forcefeeding may lead to discomfort.. and if she is teething she will be cranky, demand more bf.. refuse to have top feed etc. Be patient it is a phase.. her gums must be hurting gently massage.. give a teether to chew on.. feed as much she willing takes.. all the best!!

Yes, she is teething... She drinks only 100 ml milk at a time, how can I increase her capacity?

In the day or at night?? Also is she teething? Babies tend to sleep less during the day as they grow.. so she might take a few small naps every couple of hours.. if she is teething it could be the reason of disturbed sleep at night.. massage the gums gently.. and give a soft teether to chew on..
