Keeping your baby awake too long can produce the opposite effect. Your baby will get overtired, over stimulated and have a harder time settling down.
So look for your baby to give you these cues to help you determine when to put your baby down to sleep:
- Her eyes will look a bit glazed
- She will seem extra fussy
- She will lose interest in people and toys
- Your baby will start to yawn
- She will tug on her ears and rub her eyes
- Her eyebrows will turn reddish
