Radhika are you saying he sleeps for just half an hour on the entire day and night ?

Sonali Shivlani

Over all at this age a child should be sleeping about twelve hours a day. Your little one is probably sleeping more at night. Another cause could be teething which is making him uncomfortable and hence not able to sleep and cranky. Consult with the doctor about this. You could also discuss starting solids as he is five months old and may be ready for the same. A solid meal at lunch could help him to settle down and sleep better.

Neha Agarwal; in night it's 8 hrs from 11 to 7.30 am .in day means in between 8; to 11 pm he takes 4-5 naps each of 30 mins. Sonali Shivlani mam when he cries he used to place his two fingers in mouth is it d sign of teething?? How to check it?? I haven't started solids n semi liquids becoz his head n neck; control is yet to completely achieve like 75% is achieved. he can roll over n try to crawl he moves his knees n buttock that way.
