How to spot your child’s tired signs before they become overtired .

Struggling to fall sleep, not staying asleep and waking up too soon can be down to your little one being overtired before you put them down to sleep.

By being aware of your own baby’s tired cues you can avoid them becoming overtired and sleep will come more easily for them. 

Every baby is unique and will show they are becoming tired in different ways. In the first few months especially it is important to recognise when they are ready for sleep as this is they key to getting them down easier, them sleeping for longer and waking up happy. 


SIGNS YOUR CHILD IS BECOMING SLEEPY:

- They start to stare, hardly blinking.

- The skin around their eyesbrows looked a bit pink or red.

- They look away from you or objects in front of them.


SIGNS YOUR CHILD IS READY FOR A NAP/GO TO BED:

- They start to get more "fussy".

- They start yawning.

- They rub their eyes, head or face.


SIGNS YOUR CHILD IS OVER-TIRED:

- Frantic crying.

- Body becomes rigid.

- They push away from you.

Once your child reaches 5 months old keeping to their wake window (the length of time they are comfortable able to be awake before needing sleep again) whilst also noticing their unique signs of becoming tired will really help get a sleep schedule in place and help you to structure your day more easily.
