What makes you say she's not eating enough during he day?
At 6 months I'd be letting her sleep!

She is a picky eater and at the moment refusing a lot of feeds and not doing well on solids so I try and get some in when she is asleep but 7/10 times she refuses but then next day she still isn't up to eating much. She has only past couple of weeks started to refuse at night time ?

Really let her sleep! She's 6 months old already.

It is nice not having to wake up to feed her but I wasn't sure If I was being selfish or just letting her do what she wants Confused

She is a baby she hasn't learned to be spoiled Grin yet she might be quietly teething and not that hungry just offer her bits and pieces during the day if she is still not eating or drinking much speak to your health visitor
