I think Echolalia would be repeating everything not this specific thing. I had a child who did a lot of echolalia but she would repeat almost everything.

Wow at 6 months she should be getting WAY more breastmilk, unless mom is up feeding her several times a night, which might explain the tiredness of the baby.
