The first thing to remember
When your baby is tired, they are often irritable. Although they cannot say that they are tired and want to sleep but little kid always shows it in many different ways.
The signs that the child is tired:
They are usually tired after eating. The best time to coax the baby to sleep is after the baby has eaten or even while eating almost done.
Become grumpy and inconsolably. Babies cannot concentrate on you and start yawning; even their face looks a bit pale. They keep crying without playing anymore and just are peace when you hug.
Clenching hands, their face is grimaced with eyes looking into the distance, or jerky movements.
For large baby:
They usually wake up longer after eating. Babies like to eat, play and then sleep. They will rub their eyes, yawning, head on your shoulder or on the bed.
Your baby may cry loudly. This time is often easier to know any better. Many children have sleep-wake cycles quite well. From 3 months onwards, the baby can sleep longer than 6 hours per night without demanding food formula.
Playing too much can make them tired and have trouble in sleeping even though they are very sleepy. Parents of older children can understand better about how to coax the baby more easily.
Toddlers in 1-3 years:
