An overtired baby is not a happy baby. When a baby is overly tired, he or she rubs their eyes, cries, has tantrums, has difficulty feeding, yawns, and has jerky movements. One common reason for tiredness is sleep deprivation; however, a routine will prevent a child from becoming overly tired. Also, taking regular daily naps will avert fatigue.
Other tips for caring your baby are holding your baby right, bottle-feeding or breastfeeding, helping your child to burp, changing diapers regularly, sponge baths, massaging, baby toys, creating a comfortable and safe sleeping environment, making sure your baby sleeps on his back and layering your baby’s clothes.
To conclude, an overtired baby is not a happy baby. Talk to your pediatrician soon and discuss how to find ways to help your baby feel awake, comfortable, and less tired during his waking hours.
