Baby sleeps on my chest.

My daughter is 1 & half month old & she likes sleeping on my chest for most of the time especially when she cries for long. She awakes whole night & cries a lot during that time.Also she likes sleeping whole day long. Our main concern is whether it is unsafe for her lying on my chest for long since that might be putting stress on her stomach of may cause some back problems. Please suggest what to do.

Food for 3-6 months baby

My baby has just turned 3 months old.I have been giving breastmilk and formula milk in parallel since beginning because he does not get full by my breastmilk. Please let me know what should be the food chart for the baby from now till he reaches 6 months. He has lot of gases for which I give carmicide occasionally. He pees over 8 times a day and does potty once every day. When should I start solids? When the baby can be given cow's milk? I ask this because anyways I am giving him top feed and my breastfeeding is not exclusive so, wanted to check if in this case solids should be started. Or should I continue breastmilk and formula in parallel. Please guide.
