Tot with excessive sleep, only on breast feed, vomits on forceful feeding. What should be done?

my child is 1yr 3 months old. Lately she has started sleeping excessively. Her wt. is just 9 kgs. I give her my feed, but I dont think that world be enough to keep her full. She wakes up in the night and i feed her back to sleep. If we keep her hungry she would not know, she just doesnt eat properly, takes one bite and runs away. We have started force feeding her, which sometimes results in puking. Is it right to force feed? Shall i stop my feed?

Hello sir/madam,
I am highly concerned for your child. This is absolutely normal phenomena for a toddler age group child. You should never force feed her. Recommendation is that you should continue breast feeding upto 2 years age, simultaneously should give home made semi solid foods in between while playing. You should concentrate on what to feed rather than how much to feed. Children are very good judge of their appetite. Thank you
