Doctor

A:   Mostly babies interrupt sleep due to hunger. Feed your baby fully, so that your baby does not awake during nights. Make your baby active in morning with playing etc which helps to sleep your baby well in nights. Use proper diapers which keep your baby dry all night. But remember, it normal for baby to be active during nights, as they have nocturnal behavior in early age. Followup with your pediatrician for further advice.
