Baby not sleeping
My baby girl is of 5 months now. She has trouble sleeping. After feed she sleeps only for 30 min and wakes up. Routine is same even at night. She is over exhausted now to sleep. Keeps on crying. We do not see any other issue than sleep deprivation as her weight and growth is on track. What can I do?

if your childs growth is appropriate then this restless ness can be explained by examining the child only but you can start with seeing a few things. 1.do you hear any noisy breathing when child sleeps. 2.is the urine and stool pattern normal. 3.get her ears examined.
Next Steps
giving the baby a good massage and letting the child use his energy in playing in a baby gym might help.
Health Tips
if the problem does not affect growth then its not major but if the disturbed sleep pattern is of recent onset and does not settle in one weeks time then the child should be examined.
