Why does my 9-month-old baby still want milk in the night?

Your baby might still want milk in the night out of habit rather than needing it. By consistently giving a baby milk during the night, they will automatically wake for it and expect it. When a baby his 9 months the most beneficial source of nutrition comes from what a baby eats. We need to ensure that they are getting a well-balanced diet of solid food. Sometimes babies fill up on milk and then are not very interested in food. Parents then worry about their baby not getting enough to eat, so give them more milk. The milk then fills them up and when they are full up on milk and they might not be interested in their food and so the cycle begins again.
