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
